The The Bellator-class dreadnought, also known as the Bellator-class Star Destroyer, was a warship in the Imperial Navy, as well as a divergent design in the Mandator-series of Star Dreadnoughts.
The Bellator-class was a model of dreadnought based on the earlier Mandator-Class and Mandator II-Class dreadnoughts. It was a scaled-down version, 800 meters shorter than its predecessors.
Offensive and defensive systems Edit
The dorsal surface mounted a large array of gun batteries. The batteries were arranged both on the port and starboard sides of the hull, as well as on the ridge in front of the command tower.
Propulsion systems Edit
uilt for speed, the Bellator sacrificed armaments to gain higher velocities than its Mandator-class predecessors. This philosophy separated it from its conceptual cousin, the Mandator III-Class Dreadnought which was built to be larger and more heavily armed than the previous models of the series.
The Bellator-class had two reactors that protruded underneath the superstructure with armored bulges. It was propelled by ten large thrusters and four smaller ones.
Bridge tower Edit
he class was marked with a ridge-structure in front of its command tower. The tower itself was similar to the towers on a number of other Imperial warships, like the Imperial-Class Star destroyer and the Executor-Class Super Star destroyer.
Design lineage Edit
The Bellator-class dreadnought was a design based on the Mandator- and Mandator II-classes. It diverged from its predecessors by being shorter and faster and the design was referred to in the Imperial Military as a "fast dreadnought".
