Rothana Heavy Engineering Imperator-II SD by Shoguneagle Rothana Heavy Engineering Imperator-II SD by Shoguneagle
Following the Clone Wars and the subsequent Republic-Confederate Galactic Conflict, Executor Tarkin and his inner circle knew that most of the CIS Navy, even with the fielding of the Imperator-class star destroyers, was growing more and more obsolete as the Republic's own modernization had ramped up following their strategic victory in the Corellian Sector. Vessels such as the Subjugator-class heavy cruisers and Providence-class carriers, while early hard-hitters in the Clone Wars, were unable to match the new star defender designs in firepower, nor were as versatile or fast as the newer Mon Calamari cruisers. But the solution came just as quickly as the Confederacy was replaced by the Galactic Dominion.

The think-tanks within the New Order unleashed their plan to refine the Dominion's Navy: titanic star dreadnaughts, beginning with the Absolute-class, would form the centerpiece of the main fleets, reserved for major campaigns and/or use in "Base Delta Zero" actions to terrorize Republic worlds. The mobile fleets would use a modernized class of the Imperator, dubbed the Imperator-II, as their flagships. Armed with the latest long-range turbolaser batteries, proton torpedo tubes, a larger array of ion cannons and medium turbolasers, and increased TIE capacity, the Imperator-II became the source of woe for the Republic Navy during the Galactic Civil War, unmatched by nearly any vessel until the development and production of the MC85 command cruiser.

Even after Tarkin's death and the Dominion's defeat at Endor, its remnants would make consistent use of the Imperator-II as flagships, whether it be Daala's Basilisk, or Thrawn's Chimaera.

I love this ship more the Imperial class star destroyers. I think that with a few upgrades that she could be the new star destroyer for the post endor universe. I think that an upgrade in it's dimensions and overall mission is an excellent use of anything form weapons to warships. I still see Imperial class but like a P-51 Mustang to an F-22 Raptor. Classic to future of warfare. well done would to have loved to see these in The Force Awakens or The Last Jedi. I think you should up grande it to a cruiser heavy cruiser or battlecruiser caliber warship. That would be really nice
What do you think?

The bow prong looks like it could easily be equipped with the modern equivalent of a Silencer mega laser after all the ship is based on the appearance of the old Harrower-class dreadnought, right?

It could be modified to fit all sorts of different hardware/weapons, if so desired by whoever wanted to spend the credits.

Pretty sporty! I'll take 8!

does the REpublic assault cruiser carry like well over 420 starfighters and the Resurgent class have well over 3,000 heavy weapons emplacements

Have you considered adapting the stats to the Fantasy Flight Star Wars RPG? Age of Rebellion, Edge of the Empire, or Force and Destiny

I do have all of the books related for the FFS RP system, but I haven't sat and broken down the rule system to do this. D6 is my go-to for Star Wars, but perhaps once Father and Son of the Suns and the Destiny Era are completed, I'll work on a converted set next.
