Imperial escort carriers
Imperial Escort Carriers
The Escort Carrier is a gunship created for Imperial Storm Commandos. They carry large complements of TIE fighters. They first appeared in Star Wars: Rebel Strike. These large ships are armed with 2 large forward cannons, 2 small forward cannons, and 2 small ventral blasters to protect the hanger. Its only real weakness is its engines -- a small craft can stay near its engines and can't be hit by any of its weaponry.
