The result of cooperation between former Imperial and Ascendancy engineers within the empire of the Hand, the Peltast was one of several fusions of the basic Star Destroyer form and Ascendancy modifications to meet the needs of combat in the Unknown Regions. Most Unknown Regions combat involved fleets of smaller vessels, however occasionally groups with larger ships required pacification, like rogue Killik nests with massive Shard-class capital ships.

The Peltast was designed essentially as a mobile, self-reliant Megamaser railgun, borrowing some elements of the old Confederacy project, the Subjugator, albeit on a smaller scale. Because of the large amounts of concentrated power necessary for the main gun, the Peltast is incredibly fragile for a ship of its size.

This look hella nice!

Nice. Nowhere near what I was expecting it to look, but I love it. The Victory SD bridge is a nice touch.

Wow, nice. A spinal mounted armament, does that mean it would be only for Ascendancy mod?

For those days when a Phalanx just isn't enough.

Also Hobbles the MC90 has two spinal based Proton Torpedo launchers and those work in ICW. Unless I misunderstood your comment.

I don't see why it couldn't work in ICW; seems like a similar concept to the Zann Consortium Aggressor-class (which was also originally an Imperial design so could be seen as another spiritual successor to the Subjugator).

Slornie has the right of it though.

I was going to say the same thing.

This is a great looking ship. I approve
do you know what really makes me mad? that the NR didn't make as many different SSDs as the empire. they would have won much faster had they done so. it's just not fair. but, if their were more NR SSDs, they would be absolute SUPER-CARRIERS.

but, i'm a member of the PA at heart, and my wish here is to join the ranks of grand admirals... sorry, the elite imperial alignment

Subjugator was over 7km. 5 was Malevolence. in the news post about the EoTH, Corey said it is 1500 meters, so it is the EoTH version of the aggressor

Both Subjugator class in general and Malevolence are 5km long. Unless wookiepedia is lying
