Gestaltare Battleship

Gestaltare battleships are large, ancient heavy warships that were originally
commissioned in limited numbers by the Old Republic. They were extremely
expensive but many Old Republic naval commanders considered them well worth
the cost due to the extensive firepower that they were able to bring to bear
on any target.

The Gestaltare battleships were 186 meters longer than the Dreadnaught heavy
cruisers which once made up the bulk of the galactic fleet and carried a
substantially greater amount of weaponry. Its impressive arsenal included
fifteen turbolasers, thirty quad turbolasers, fourteen turbolasers, a pair
of concussion missile launchers and four tractor beam projectors.

To supplement the Gestaltare's offensive weaponry the Olanar and Dezul
starship design corporations - which soon went bankrupt after investing more
into the Gestaltare's design than they were able to make back off of it -
included a series of four massive deflector shield generators and four new
tractor beam projectors (the same model later found on the Victory star

Like Rendili's Dreadnaught heavy cruisers, the Gestaltare wasn't originally
designed to carry starfighters in order to conserve room on board for larger
engines, power generators and more weaponry. However, Olanar/Dezul did
include a pair of starfighter "clamps" along the ventral side of the vessel
which were designed specifically to fit Incom's Z-95 Headhunters (usually
the Z-95R reconnaissance variant). A third docking clamp located near the
ventral nose of the vessel is often used for light transports which is
usually left vacant and only used for supply and personnel transports.

To better suit the Gestaltare for prolonged deep space combat scenarios,
Olanar/Dezul incorporated massive cargo holds throughout the vessel which
allows it to carry enough supplies to allow it to remain in service for up
to four standard years without resupplying and refueling.

Due to their extremely expensive cost - both initial purchase price as well
as maintenance costs - the Gestaltare battleships saw little production and
those few that did make it into the service of the Old Republic's naval
forces were either destroyed during the Clone Wars or converted into bulk
cargo transports afterwards.
