Warships of the Republic fleet

A fleet was a conglomeration of warships usually organized to work together and under the command of a single admiral, general, or other military officer. The commanding officer would usually utilize one of the heavy capital ships within the fleet, such as a Star Destroyer, as their flagship. Governments such as the Republic and the Empire would field fleets to defend their interests and territories from attack. The Confederacy of Independent Systems possessed fleets in its navy when it fought the Republic, and the Alliance to Restore the Republic managed a fleet with which it fought against the Empire.

In the Imperial Navy, a fleet could be commanded by an admiral,[1] a Fleet Admiral, or a Grand Admiral. Some Imperial fleets were mobile, traveling from conflict to conflict, such as the Seventh Fleet[2] and Death Squadron,[1] while sector fleets were set to a specific sector of the galaxy, such as the Lothal sector fleet[3] and the Anoat sector fleet.[4] Task forces, such as the 96th Task Force, were units of ships smaller than fleets that were under the command of an admiral.[2]
