Vessels of the Executor -class also had at least one hangar bay  and escape pods. The Executor -class's bridge was meters wide and contained shield generators, briefing rooms, and escape pods. However, it was relatively exposed, making it vulnerable to enemy attack. According to the Rebel Alliance's intelligence agency , more than a dozen Super Star Destroyers were made, including the Executor itself, the Annihilator , the Arbitrator , the Eclipse , and the Ravager. However, the true number remained a subject of debate, as Alliance analysts endeavored to make sense of Imperial propaganda and see through the black budgets designed to hide the scope of the Emperor Palpatine's secret weapons programs.
In the months after the events of Endor , the New Republic , the successor government to the Alliance, destroyed five Super Star Destroyers, including the Arbitrator which accidentally jumped into a black hole due to erroneous hyperspace coordinates, and captured three more. The Ravager then rendezvoused with a large Imperial armada on the barren planet of Jakku for a showdown with the New Republic.

The Republic regained power and successfully fled the battle.
As Vader and Ozzel watched the remaining rebel ships get destroyed, Dodonna's ship returned. It opened fire on the Executor , which led to the Imperials focusing on that ship. This was a distraction which allowed Han and Leia to take transports to the remaining cruisers to give them the codes to escape. The remained rebel vessels fled except the Republic as it had been too badly damaged and was finished off by the Imperials. Although Ozzel disagreed with Vader, who sensed they found the Rebels, the Dark Lord ordered him to move the fleet to the Hoth system.
However, Ozzel brought his ships out of hyperspace too close to the system , which allowed the Rebels to raise their defensive base shields, forcing the Empire to initiate a ground assault. Ozzel was subsequently killed by Vader for his failure, and promoted Captain Firmus Piett to serve as his successor. As the Empire evicted the Rebels from Hoth's surface, the Executor , accompanied by several Star Destroyers , pursued the fleeing Millennium Falcon , into the Hoth asteroid belt adjacent to the Anoat system.
Vader eventually ordered the Executor to abandon the pursuit and get clear of the asteroid field , in order for him to communicate with Emperor Palpatine without disruptions. He later moved the ship to the gas giant Bespin , where he intended to trap the fugitives headed there aboard the Falcon in order to lure out his son, Luke Skywalker. Simultaneously, General Hurst Romodi 's shuttle was immobilized during the transportation of Captain Solo to the Executor.
The Hutt Clan attacked the Executor. Eventually, Fett acquired Solo, Valance was left for dead, and Vader slaughtered Bokku and his companions. In 4 ABY ,  the Executor , still commanded by Piett, served as the flagship for an Imperial fleet of Star Destroyers that assembled at the remote forest moon of Endor , where the Empire's new superweapon , the second Death Star was under construction.
When a Rebel fleet arrived into the system in an attempt to destroy the incomplete battle station , initiating the Battle of Endor , the Executor and the fleet moved into position to prevent the Rebels from retreating. Piett, however, did not attack the Rebels, as Emperor Palpatine wanted to demonstrate the destructive power of the Death Star 's superlaser against the cornered Rebel capital ships.
Fleeing the Death Star's firepower, the Rebels engaged Piett's Star Destroyers at close range while their ground assault team destroyed the shield generator protecting the superweapon, allowing the Rebel fighters to fly into its superstructure. The Alliance Fleet commander , Admiral Gial Ackbar , wishing to buy more time for the fighters to accomplish their mission, ordered a concentrated barrage against the Executor. As the Alliance warships focused their fire on the Super Star Destroyer, two RZ-1 A-wing interceptors strafed the Executor ' s bridge deflector shields , bringing them down.
In response, Piett ordered the forward batteries to intensify their firepower to prevent anything from penetrating the window of opportunity. A Rebel starfighter crashed into the Executor , destroying the command bridge. Aware that the Executor would become the fulcrum of not only the battle but also the balance of power in the entire Outer Rim , Vice Admiral Rae Sloane moved her ship, the Vigilance to flank position on the Executor to try and defend it.
Seeing the threat, Piett once again shouted to intensify the forward batteries, but, as Commander Gherant realized, it was too late; the Rebel fighter crashed into the Executor command tower. As explosions engulfed the bridge, the massive ship listed to port and plunged towards the Death Star's surface, exploding upon impact. Wookieepedia Explore.

Took him to G12 and slowly finishing what he needs for G Electricboa , Aug 11, Joined: Mar 30, Messages: 1, Likes Received: Electricboa you kind of mentioned that you think Neg has a shot on this on offense. Can you elaborate a little more here? Themistocles , Aug 11, Both Rebels and Malevolence are kind of singled out to be at a big disadvantage.
There are a few threats on an Executor fleet. First, the breach really bogs you down. The bigger problem is HT. Anakin does his AOE and hopefully gets buff immunity on HT and then they just attack it to get it out. Once HT is gone, you can target everyone else much easier.
HT would still be there to have a functioning tank there. But it could be like the Negotiator where it does the first or second special depending on the situation. Marc Tessier , Aug 12, Themistocles , Aug 12, So my guess is they tested a straight Malevolence fleet, Rebels, and Negotiator.
Nothing else, and no real variations on those three. The question is going to be how good of a counter it is. They purposely staggered the events so everyone was encouraged to go for JMK and use their resources and then we get the Executor. Only one is seriously considering doing 7-star right away. Apparently, they just hoard crystals and have 60k. So I did some math.
The ship unlocks at 4 stars, so more blueprints to 7-star. We get a free attempt at the bonus for 10 blueprints and have 19 refreshes crystals each. So I need 6, for 7 attempts plus 1 free one. If I want a stretch goal, then I could to 7-stars for an extra 9, 16, total. It would take about 22 days or so to save up that much. If we say 30 till the next event, I could spend a little and still make it. Alternatively, I could go one more event and do 7-stars the third event. That saved me an extra crystals, but delays another month.
Having a 7-star Executor, on the other hand, might matter a lot of they really did make it too powerful. Electricboa , Aug 12, Joined: Feb 8, Messages: Likes Received: Many in my arena shard feel the same way and are going hard after it. Waiting to see if a counter shows up where I may or may not have the right ships is a risky strategy. I project a little over 2 months for unlock and gearing Beskar Mando. Then I can see about whether crystal hoarding for refreshes will be necessary.
Laze , Aug 12, Just checked Executor's stats on swgoh. Its speed is 1 more than Negotiator, just enough to prevent the AoE daze attack from being used first. Go figure. Marc Tessier , Aug 13, Electricboa , Aug 13, Laze , Aug 14, I remember back when the matchmaking was even worse than now, people with good ships had a decided advantage. They counted GP overall, so someone might have a bunch of G8s bloating their roaster against someone with good ships and there was no way for them to clear a zone dedicated to ships.
How long it will take to find a good counter, I have no idea. CG likes to use fig leaves to justify their nerfs. The last time I really remember that happening was Malak and Emperor Palpatine. The sad thing, is she was actually not nearly as bad as it got after she left. The point was, they did a big cash grab with Malak and Palpatine was easily beating him, so they did a knee jerk reaction to prevent enemy Sith teams from gaining TM, which had the unintended effect of making Sith Assassin pretty much worthless on a DR team.
Since then, they used excuses like teams that are able to solo the HST. Will CG do the same with the Executor? I think it really comes down to how good the counter is. The Executor will be the top meta, that has been decided. So any counter that beats it too easily is going to get axed. If the counter works, but only does so on offense, that might be allowed to stay. But all of that is contingent on what the counter or counters are. As I said, I do kind of suspect you will end up going for the Executor even after testing and counters are found.
Fleet metas are slow to change, though CG did say they were going to try and make people engage with ships more, so nothing is known for sure. Electricboa , Aug 14, Laze likes this. Well, I can tell you the Executor is an offensive juggernaut even at 4 stars. I unlocked it and have been doing my daily fleet climb with it today. I am winning easily. Battles are over in 2 minutes or less.
Defeated 3 different Negotiator fleets. Ani, HT and RC as starters 2. Ani, Y-Wing and Fives' ship 3. Tons of fun. Don't think that will ever get old. Marc Tessier , Aug 16, Now that leads me to think two things. They just made the kit and assumed it countered Rebels and Malevolence. That is possible. I got mine to 5-stars. There are already 4 people in my fleet arena with 7-star Executors.
Despite all this counter stuff, I think I will try to shoot for getting it to 7-stars the next time the event comes. Last edited: Aug 16, Electricboa , Aug 16, Themistocles likes this. Okay, I did some testing and I failed a few times using Rebels, Separatists and mirror Executor matches.
Now this was all against a 5-star Executor. Word on the street is the AI for lower star ships is better than 7-star.

I always thought it wouldn't be bigger than half a million anyway: the Eclipse, a similar sized vessel, only had a crew of , According to Saxton's site at least, a destroyer is a light combatant suitable for escort and chasing down smaller ships.
A dreadnaught is a much larger heavy combatant with powerful guns and armour suitable for heavy engagements. Hope that helps.
