Imperial II Star Destroyer
Description:
The Imperial II-class Star Destroyer was a Star Destroyer model built with a heavily reinforced hull, stronger shields than the Mk.I model, and greater firepower. The first ships of this class began to appear in service several months after the Battle of Yavin.

Several differences existed between the Imperial Mk.I and II, including the replacement of the tractor beam targeting array between the command tower's sensor globes, with a communications tower.

The main difference was in the layout of the ship's firepower. Replacing the heavy turbolaser turrets on the port and starboard superstructure were octuple mount turbolasers, designed for rapid fire in close range encounters. Many of the single mount turbolasers and Ion Cannons across the hull were replaced with Heavy Turbolaser. All in all the ship was an upgrade across the board to its impressive cousins, but relatively few were produced due to the concentration of Imperial might into the 'superweapons' projects; the Death Stars, Executors, Eclipse, and World Devastators.
