The Imperial II-class Star Destroyer, colloquially known as the "Impstar-Deuce", was a Star Destroyer model that was derived from the Imperial I-class Star Destroyer. Between its two sensor globes, the Imperial II-class ships had a tower-like structure with vertical support beams, while the tractor beam targeting array of the Imperial I-class had support beams running diagonally across it.
The ISD Avenger, which participated in the Imperial victory at Hoth, was an an Imperial II-class vessel, and so was the ISD Torment, which took part in Operation: Cinder under the command of Captain Lerr Duvat.
Behind the scenesEdit
On the first page of Star Wars: Shattered Empire, Part II, illustrated by Emilio Laiso, the ISD Torment was mistakenly depicted with the targeting array of an Imperial I-class Star Destroyer. This was rectified in the last page of the very same issue, drawn this time by Marco Checchetto, which featured a tower similar to that of the ISD Avenger shown in Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back.
