The Mega-class Star Dreadnought, also known as the Mega-class Star Destroyer, the Mega Star Destroyer, or the First Order Mega-Destroyer, was a class of Star Dreadnought utilized by the First Order during their conflict with the Resistance.
Design and capabilities
The Mega-class Star Dreadnought was more than 60 kilometers wide, and almost 13 kilometers long. It could carry six Resurgent-class Star Destroyers in the back portion of the wings, as well as two internally, in hangars where they could be repaired.
It had around 32 sublight engines, as well as a hyperdrive. It also housed a hyperspace tracker, found on other starships as well. It could carry 2,225,000 personnel, which included stormtroopers, officers, gunners, vehicle engineers, factory workers, technical specialists, and communications staff. It also had had stormtrooper training centers and several automatic laundromats.
It had a throne room for Snoke and a bridge that provided 360-degree view of the entire ship. It also had a large computer room that had the data of an entire planet. It was also so self-sufficient it could last under siege for several years.
In addition, the vessel possessed heavy turbolasers, anti-ship missile batteries, and tractor beam projectors. The bow of the ship possessed numerous long-range heavy turbolaser towers. Its communication complex could monitor the HoloNet traffic throughout the galaxy to identify trends and weaknesses that the First Order could exploit. As such, they could also dispatch orders to various agents operating within both New Republic and independent space.
The sole Mega-class Star Dreadnought in the First Order Navy was the Supremacy, the flagship of Supreme Leader Snoke as well as the de facto capital of the First Order. The Supremacy suffered extensive damage while attacking the Resistance fleet when Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo rammed it near lightspeed with the heavy cruiser Raddus, slicing the Dreadnought in two and also destroying a number of its escort Resurgent-class Star Destroyers.
