Maxima-A class heavy cruisers were wedge-shaped[4] First Order heavy cruisers employed around[1] thirty years after the Battle of Endor.[5] New Republic Commander Poe Dameron discovered two of the cruisers at a staging point as the Cold War heated up.[1]

Sometime afterward, Agent Terex commanded one such heavy cruiser, the Ravenous, during the search for the explorer and historian Lor San Tekka. It deployed TIE fighters against Black Squadron, but the confrontation ended in a draw.[4] During the war between the First Order and the Resistance, a Maxima-A class heavy cruiser, the Fortitude, attacked the planet Ikkrukk.[6]
