The Mandator II-class Star Dreadnaught was a warship design that served in the centralized Republic Navy by 19 BBY.[3][1]

CharacteristicsEdit

The Mandator II-class was a powerful vessel. While Star Destroyers like the Venator-class could stand up to a handful of Separatist Recusant-class light destroyers, a Star Dreadnought like the Mandator II-class could withstand an assault of up to 1,000 of these warships.[1] As such, the vessel carried reactor equipment large enough to force the length of its hull up to its length of 8 kilometers.[4]

HistoryEdit

Having cut its ties to the Techno Union prior to the Clone Wars, Kuat Drive Yards began building starships for Republic use only.[5] Among its new designs was the Mandator II-class, an upgrade of the prewar Mandator-class Star Dreadnaught, which had formed part of the Kuat sector's defenses in peace-time.[6] These heavy vessels formed part of Supreme Chancellor Palpatine's newly centralized Republic Navy during the Clone Wars,[3] along with KDY's other heavily armed, wedge-shaped warship designs.[1][7]

The class was far larger and more heavily armed than the Venator-class Star Destroyer and was produced in fewer numbers than this common Jedi cruiser.[8] The various KDY warships were collectively praised for the Republic's victories during the war, while the Jedi Generals' leadership was downplayed.[1][7][9] The Mandator II-class design was later surpassed by heavy warships made during the reign of the Galactic Empire.[10]

Among the designs derived from it, was the Bellator-class dreadnought and the Mandator III-class dreadnought which emphasized different aspects of both the Mandator and Mandator II classes.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

According to Ansel Hsiao on Stardestroyer.net forums around the time The Essential Guide to Warfare was released, both he and Jason Fry planned to make all the Mandator-series, in addition to the Bellator-class, humpbacked vessels similar to the one that appeared in Dark Empire, although nothing of the sort made it into the final cut by the time of its release.[11] However, the intended humpbacked hulls of the Mandator-series was nonetheless implied in Jason Fry's endnotes for the book.
