Vindicator-Class Heavy Cruiser

The Interdictor-Class Star Destroyer is actually a refit of the Vindicator-Class Heavy Cruiser. The Vindicator-Class Heavy Cruiser's Tractor Beams, Point-Defense weapons, and Turbolaser Batteries were stripped out during the refit, making room for the massive gravity well generators and their associated systems. Not all Vindicator-Class Heavy Cruisers were converted to Interdictor-Class Star Destroyers, and some remain armed and active in the Imperial Fleet.

Tactical Fire Edit

The Vindicator-Class Heavy Cruiser and the Interdictor-Class Star Destroyer were both designed to keep enemy ships from fleeing, by the use of either firepower or gravity wells. As a Standard Action, a Vindicator-Class Heavy Cruiser can forgo all attacks to provide Tactical Fire to all squares in a 2-square radius around itself. All enemy Starships moving into that area must succeed on a DC 20 Pilot check or stop moving for the remainder of the round. Once a ship is within this area, no further Pilot checks are required, though if a ship leaves this area and then moves into it again, a new Pilot check must be attempted.
