Description: The Tagge battlecruiser was a series of warships produced by Tagge Industries Shipyards Limited and fielded during the Galactic Civil War.
The battlecruiser design was dagger-shaped, like the contemporary Star Destroyers and Super Star Destroyers. They were sizable, and eclipsed most regular Star Destroyers in use by the Galactic Empire.
These warships were pledged by the House of Tagge in support of Imperial warships during the Yavin blockade, and were under the command of General Ulric Tagge. The official reason for their deployment, however, was to curb mining strikes in the Gordian Reach. The family patriarch, Orman Tagge, used his brother's position to conduct operations throughout the blockade without the Empire's knowledge, in order to discredit his rival, Darth Vader.
During the Omega Frost fiasco, Tagge's personal battlecruiser was attacked by a fleet of Rebel gunships. The Millennium Falcon got in a precise hit, pierced one of its shields and hit a reserve reactor, forcing the General and his staff to flee in an escape craft.
General Tagge's battlecruiser
General Ulric Tagge was put in charge of a flotilla of Tagge warships assisting in the Yavin blockade. He traveled aboard several Tagge battlecruisers in the months following the Battle of Yavin.
The ship features showed size and armor protection greater than on Star Destroyers, with sensor globes merged with the command tower hull and multiple layers of armor.
General Tagge was on-board a battlecruiser with sleek armor, when meeting with his older brother Orman to discuss the plot to wrest power away from Darth Vader. Later on, the general switched between several vessels stationed at the blockade of the Gordian Reach.
His third documented battlecruiser was destroyed by a fleet of Rebel gunboats, but he managed to escape and was transferred to a fourth vessel of similar size and shape.

Sorry I can't figure this out, but the dialogue bubbles seem to be coming from the green ship. Is that the battlecruiser?

The green ship is the TaggeCo Mining Explorer, the Star Destroyer looking one is the Battlecruiser.
