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).

''Allegiance''-class Star Destroyers are a significant departure from the basic wedge-destroyer design.  The hull is longer, 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.

''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.
