Description:
The Pursuit-class light cruiser was a type of capital ship in the Imperial Navy.

It resembled a small variant of the more common Star Destroyers that the Galactic Empire used, although the main hull was a rather flat, square-bowed platform rather than a deep-keeled dagger. The main engines were mounted in the superstructure rising above the hull platform at the rear, which was topped by a row of sensor globes.

The primary armament consisted of two weapons turrets, perhaps turbolasers, mounted ahead of the superstructure, which were probably supplemented by other weapons in less prominent emplacements.

The Pursuit-class cruiser had docking bay capable of launching several TIE series starfighters and was sometimes equipped with more potent TIE Advanced x1 starfighters. In open space, the cruiser's straight-line acceleration seems to have been slightly below that of Millennium Falcon.

The class was used and well-known in the year following the Battle of Yavin. One vessel was used as a command ship by Commander Strom in his sector near the Wheel, but little more is known about the design's service history.
