Isolder, where does this information about a cloak on the Emperor's shuttle come from? --Ted C 11:11, 8 November 2012 (EST)

  • From an old WEG Imperial Sourcebook, if we don't want to trust it that's fine with me. I have found the extra armor and shielding in other sources. As far as the cloaking device, it was just a minor notation in the section on cloaking devices. The wording was, it is believed that the Emperor's shuttle is fitted with a experimental cloaking device for extra protection. I don't have the book available to double check it however. I did check Wookiepedia and it does confirm that it is there. They reference the Star Wars Encyclopedia as the source. Isolder74 12:04, 8 November 2012 (EST
    • Mainly wondering whether there was some evidence in the movies. According to TESB, ships in that size range are too small to have a cloaking device (since the Lambda looks to be in the same size range as the Falcon). --Ted C 14:05, 8 November 2012 (EST)
      • Of course it is possible that Captain Needa was not aware of the secret project that lead to the development of that unit on the Emperor's shuttle. The ESB quote also makes the Phantom Tie's a big question mark as well. But true it is never used on screen. --Isolder74 14:13, 8 November 2012 (EST)
