The Shell-cracker prototype was an Imperial R&D starship. It was developed for Operation: Shell-cracker after the Battle of Yavin at The Hammer. The prototype's purpose was to eliminate enemy starships. It had a complex shield structure containing lattice-like ionic energies designed to disrupt particle and ray shields, and deliver a series of bombs against the target.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Shell-cracker appears in Operation: Shell Game, the adventure in Fantasy Flight Games' Star Wars: Age of Rebellion: Roleplaying Game BETA. If the players manage to take possession of it, the epilogue notes it is seized by Alliance Intelligence.
