Note : ISB lists no atmospheric speed, while SOTG states atmosphere capable, with R supporting this: "maintains its predecessor's bombardment capabilities". Since, ISB does not explicitly state otherwise, the VSDII must be atmospheric capable. SOTG incorrectly states: 20 turbolasers, 20 heavy double turbolaser cannons, 10 heavy ion cannons, 10 tractor beam projectors. XA incorrectly states KDY; 898 m; 4,798 crew and 2,040 troops. Strangely, XA gives the VSDII a weaker hull to the VSD.


    The Victory II-class Star Destroyer was conceived to rectify the shortcomings of its predecessor through employing a more balanced philosophy. It was not until the Clone Wars had concluded that these ships began rolling out of the shipyards. Due to the cessation of hostilities only a handful were ever completed. Designed with deep space combat in mind, the VSDII was equipped with powerful Hoersch-Kessel engines that substantially increased sublight speed and manoeuvrability. Nevertheless, it is considered to possess sufficient firepower to lay siege to entire worlds. Its ion cannons and tractor beam combination allows the VSDII to disrupt the normal performance of an opposing vessel, in order to expose it to the VSDII's destructive arsenal.

    There came a point where it simply could no longer best the newer starships that were entering service. Over time, more and more VSDIIs were assigned to patrol and planetary defence duties. While their primary mission is sector patrol, either in pairs or with other vessels, they also perform well in the blockade role. Locations with suspected hot spots, Rebel or pirate activity are commonly visited by VSDIIs to pacify them. Just after the Battle of Yavin, recent shortages and high demand for TIE Fighters have resulted in several VSDII hangers being mothballed or employed to carry non-combat craft as battle platforms. Visually, this ship is indistinguishable from its predecessor, even though it features larger hanger bays. Deep within the heart of this warship is the Command Command Centre where ship functions can be controlled.

*After Endor* During the invasion of the Kalinda System no ISDs were included in the force, rather a VSD and VSDII (with an admiral in command) led the force. At the time of Grand Admiral Thrawn's untimely death, the New Republic operated the VSDII, an example would be the Swift Liberty.
