Background: The Interdictor-class cruiser, also known as the hyperspace interdiction cruiser, the Interdictor-class Sith destroyer, or the Interdictor-class star cruiser was among the most numerous capital ships seen in action with the Sith armada during and after the Jedi Civil War.

The Interdictor-class was 600 meters long and featured a hull that split into two structures, one dorsal and one ventral. The ship was propelled by three main thrusters and four auxiliary thrusters, similar to the Imperial-class Star Destroyer. Each ship was commanded from a sternward tower.

The Interdictor-class cruiser was armed with 5 medium Turbolaser cannon batteries, 6 light point-defense cannon batteries, 3 tractor beam batteries, and 4 gravity well projectors. The infamous Interdictor-class cruiser and Sith warship, the Leviathan was equipped with 20 quad laser cannons, 4 turbolaser cannons, 2 ion cannons and a tractor beam projector.

Despite the timespan between designs, the Interdictor-class cruiser was comparable in power to Star Destroyers of the Imperial era.
