The Venator-Class Star Destroyer was one of the capital ships used by the Galactic Republic during the Clone Wars. It is armed with 52 laser cannons, Heavy Proton Torpedo Tubes, and six tractor beam projectors. It Carries 2000 troops and 7400 crewmen. It has a complement of V-Wings, V-19 Torrent Starfighters, Any 192 Jedi Starfighters, 40 Gunships, 24 military Walkers and various shuttles.
The Venator-class was the primary battleship of the Republic Navy, serving as both a destroyer and a carrier. When the Galactic Empire came into power, though, the ship rapidly fell out of favor and was replaced by the Imperator-class Star Destroyer, now rechristened the Imperial-class Star Destroyer.
