Capital ships were powerful starships used by such organizations as the Galactic Empire, the Rebel Alliance and the First Order. Star Destroyers were capital ships, as were MC80 star cruisers. Capital ships were meant to be used in large-scale fleet operations, as their powerful weaponry was highly potent in space battles.
Capital ships were generally large and powerful, but also slow and ponderous in spaceflight. This meant that following the Galactic Civil War, the New Republic was able to, over time, pick off most of the Galactic Empire's capital ships by overwhelming them with smaller, more nimble vessels.
