An improvement on the Imperial Missile Destroyer, the design was made more bulky to reinforce its armor, and also given two missile launchers instead of one. They typically patrolled the seas around Imperial installations, often accompanied by Imperial scout frigates serving as escort vessels, in order to protect against surprise attacks from Rebel starfighters or pirates.
Behind the scenesEdit
Heavy Missile Destroyers appear in the 2001 video game Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds and its 2002 expansion pack Clone Campaigns. They may be built during the Galactic Empire campaign or in multiplayer.
