star destroyers
« on: May 05, 2013, 01:45:31 AM »
i must have ships on the brain today.
i was wondering was the star destroyers from the first SW movies( episodes4-6) able to go into the atmosphere? i know the ones in the later ones(episodes 1-3) showed in on the planet.
this maybe a moot point but i am really wondering.

  • That's no moon. It's a space station.

It does not seem very clear, but looks like some can enter the atmosphere like the I Class, but I would say the larger ones like Executor would not be able to.

The republic cruisers (from the prequels) were much smaller and definitely could enter atmosphere. I believe the Victory class SD's could as well but Imperial class and up were too big.
