Imperial III Star Destroyer

The first operational Imperial III Star Destroyers were presented to
the Emperor approximately six months prior to the Battle of Endor. The
result of years worth of research and development by Kuat Drive Yards,
the ISD3 was supposed to put modern Imperial warships more on par with
the Rebel's Mon Calamari star cruisers and their extensive backup shielding.
While the Imperial III didn't carry the backup shielding of the Mon
Calamari cruisers, it did boast more firepower, strengthened shields,
reinforced armor and a number of additional combat support craft.

Kuat Drive Yards intended to incorporate a few classic design elements
from older warships into the Imperial III, mainly an enlarged hangar and
vehicle storage area in order to adequately carry more combat vehicles and
vessels. Doing so would not only lowers the need for escorting starships
but also would make it more apt to conduct planetary assaults without the
support of other Star Destroyers or carriers. In order to make room for
these extra ships and vehicles, designers removed a lot of the internal
barracks and crew quarters and relocated them elsewhere - most commonly
by adding an extra bunk in other existing quarters. However, additional
automation and droid crewers also reduced the overall crew numbers and
made the move easier.

The Imperial III Star Destroyers were intended to serve as in multiple
combat roles ranging from full planetary assault to pitched deep space
combat, thus eliminating the need for specialized ISD variants such as
those modified for planetary assault or as fleet carriers.

Several of the Imperial IIIs within the Imperial Fleet were present at
the Battle of Endor, one of which was destroyed, another two taking
moderate to heavy damage while the remaining retreated from the scene
upon the Death Star's destruction. The few that were actually constructed
at this point in time would remain the only ones to ever be built. The
shipyards of Kuat haulted construction upon word of the Emperor's death
and those ISD3s remaining would eventually be pitted against each other
in the hands of feuding warlords.
