The Golan II Space Defense SpaceGun, also known simply as the Golan II, was the second space station in Golan Arms' series of space defense platforms.

DescriptionEdit

40177 GS

A Golan II.

The Golan II was the successor to the original Golan platform, which was judged to be insufficiently powerful to counter the threat of larger ships such as Star Destroyers. Though the Golan II was based on the same general principles of design and function, the hull was built with a unique crossbeam structure to increase the station's durability, and more efficient power generators allowed for a significant increase in shield power.

The Golan II station was armed with 35 turbolaser batteries, 10 proton torpedo launchers, and 8 tractor beam projectors. Like the Golan I, they also contained a hangar for small vessels, capable of launching at least 13 starfighters.

HistoryEdit

Golan2 ISDs X-wings

A Golan II SpaceGun with several Imperial-class Star Destroyers and X-wings.

Golan II platforms were used to defend more valuable targets, like the Imperial shipyards in the Bilbringi system. At the Battle of Bilbringi, it took the combined efforts of Rogue Squadron and two New Republic assault frigates to neutralize one Golan II.

Despite their impressive firepower, even the Golan II eventually seemed inadequate, and they were succeeded by the Golan III Space Defense NovaGun stations.

As late as the final stages of the Yuuzhan Vong War, Golan IIs were still in service.
