The standard mile-long ISD is the [[Imperial-class Star Destroyer|''Imperial''-class Star Destroyer]], a versatile small warship. It was originally called the ''Imperator''-class Star Destroyer before being renamed after the [[Jedi Purge|Jedi purge]]. It combines powerful sublight engines with a flexible [[turbolaser]] armament and a wing of 72 [[TIE Fighters|TIE craft]].  There are sub-variants of this class, known as ''Imperial I''-class (ISD-I, sometimes referred to as the ''Devastator''-class) and the ''Imperial II''-class (ISD-II, or the ''Avenger''-class).

The standard mile-long (1.6km) ISD is the ''Imperial''-class Star Destroyer, a versatile small warship.

Um... I dunno.

The ''Tector''-class Star Destroyer is a hangarless Star Destoyer. These ships opted for more armor plating, their reactor bulb reinforced and not visible. Because the ''Tector''-class was more armored it was much more effective in combat than their ''Imperial''-class cousins, however, this also left the ''Tector''-class without any form of fighter support. It still has a shuttle hanger so it could possibly carry a handful of [[Assault Gunboat]]s.

==''Dominator''-class Star Destroyer==

The ''Dominator''-class appears to be KDY's response to the [[Sienar Fleet Systems]] [[Immobiliser-418]] interdictor.  While the [[Immobiliser-418]] type is a smaller, more specialised vessel, the ''Dominator'' is a more flexible, powerful type similar to the Imperial-class.

 +
It posesses the powerful gravity-well generators that allow the ship to interrupt or prevent hyperspace travel, which occupy a significant fraction of the standard ISD hull volume.  The standard superstructure is almost completely removed, but the class retains the small forward hangar of the Imperial-class and possesses perhaps 2 squadrons of TIEs.

==''Allegiance''-class Star Destroyer==
  
==''Acclamator''-class Star Destroyer==
+
''Allegiance''-class Star Destroyers are a significant departure from the basic wedge-destroyer design.  The hull is longer (at ~2.2km), but narrower, and the superstructure is more heavily armoured and sloped.  It possesses no ventral hangars, and a significantly larger ventral bulb, suggesting a much more powerful powerplant.
  
 +
The ''Allegiance'' is thus a more specialised design, like ''Tector'', in that it is focused entirely on ship-to-ship combat.  It appears in battles as a central vessel or flagship, with numerous smaller ships (including Imperial-class Star Destroyers) for support.
