The Imperial Heavy Missile Destroyer were aquatic repulsorcraft that were used by the Galactic Empire as the anti-air units of its aquatic navy.


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.

Heavy Missile Destroyers under the command of Darth Vader were used during the Reytha campaign in 0 ABY.

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.
