The Eclipse-class Super Star Destroyer (also designated as a Star Dreadnought) is the largest capital ship in the Imperial Coruscanti starfleet. It combines the Death Star's potential for ecological devastation with the sheer creepiness of the monoliths from 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Currently, Fleet Admiral Kendal Ozzel leads a sentry of Eclipses on patrol between Combine-Coruscant space to enforce the Treaty of Arrakis.

Coruscanti MAD doctrine

As with the United States during the Cold War, the Republic of Coruscant uses these ships as a form of deterrent against Combine aggression toward Coruscant and its allies. To the top naval brass of the Coruscanti Navy Space Division, it fills the equivalent tactical niche of a fully-armed American ballistic missile submarine. The use of the superlaser, capable of one-hit kills on ships in addition to destroying your planet, requires the explicit authorization of the Chancellor of Coruscant. Currently, the Eclipse Star Destroyers are specially outfitted for extended border patrols.
