The Allegiance-class battlecruiser was a large warship in the Imperial Navy. Like other vessels in the long-running Star Destroyer design family, it was marked by a distinct wedge-shape.

DescriptionEdit

DimensionsEdit

The Allegiance-class battlecruiser was similar in appearance to both the Victory, Procursator and Imperial-class Star Destroyers, but was larger than all of them, reaching a length of 2,200 meters.[1] Unlike the Victory and the Imperial, the Allegiance-class lacked ventral hangar bays.[2][3] Like fellow hangarless models such as the Procursator and Tector-class,[7] the model could seemingly only rely on its own exterior ordnance, as the Allegiance appeared to be unable to carry any starfighters or ground vehicles internally.

The terraced dorsal superstructure that surrounded the Allegiance's bridge tower was far smoother than those on the Imperial-class, allowing for better armor coverage and less exposure of the inter-plate surfaces.

Offensive and defensive systemsEdit

The Allegiance-class was armed with turreted gun batteries in a similar layout to the dorsal turret guns on the Imperial I-class Star Destroyer,[8] albeit with an increased number of guns, six instead of four, due to its larger frame.[3] The ship also had several cannons situated on the mid-axis of the vessel,[3] similar to the batteries located on the mid-axis of the Imperial-class models.

Propulsion systemsEdit

The Allegiance-class battlecruiser had a visible armored reactor bulge on the ventral side of the superstructure, similar to the Imperial[8] and the Victory-class.[9] Due to scale, it was more massive than on these contemporary Star Destroyers.

Bridge towerEdit

The command tower was T-shaped,[2] like the modular towers produced for many Kuat Drive Yards designs.[10] It was put in full view of enemy vessels, which made it an easy target for mass-bombardment by an enemy.[2] The Allegiance's tower included a visible section that stood out from the rest of the tower,[3] similar to the bridge sections on the Imperial II-class Star Destroyer[9] and the Executor-class Star Dreadnought.[10] The tower was capped by geodesic domes,[2][3] like on other contemporary Imperial warships.
