Interdictor Cruiser
Description:
Interdictor cruisers, like their Vindicator-class cousins, had the appearance of small Star Destroyers. However, their lines were broken by four large globes housing gravity well projectors which mimicked a large mass in space, restricting hyperspace travel. Nearby vessels were automatically prevented from engaging their hyperdrive, and any ship passing through the area via hyperspace were forced into realspace.

As well as gravity wells, the Sienar design was also equipped with 20 quad laser cannons for short range combat against other ships. The Interdictor's hull was nearly identical to that of the Vindicator-class heavy cruiser and could support several additional weapons depending on mission profile.

Since they were rare and costly to produce, Imperial tacticians rarely deployed Interdictors in intense combat situations. Typically, they would place them on the edge of a battle area to prevent enemy ships from escaping, or else use them to blockade planets or moons, such as Yavin IV.
