SD80 Dreadnaught

adapted from Colony Wars by Patrick Stutzman

Following in the footsteps of its cousin, the SD60 Destroyer, the SD80 Dreadnaught is considered one of the most powerful capital ships known and second only to the Imperial Star Destroyer line. However, this comparison has never been truly tested by the company.

Despite the fact that the SD80 is a fairly new ship design, sales for this particular class have been high with planetary governments expecting a lot of trouble. Thus far, performance expectations have been met and exceeded.
