The Venator II-class Star Destroyer was a model of the Venator-class Star Destroyer utilized by the naval forces of the Galactic Republic during the Clone Wars[1] against the Separatist Alliance.[4] Successor to the Venator I-class Star Destroyer,[5] the Star Destroyer was equipped with a forward-mounted hangar bay,[1] as well as four port and four starboard-mounted DBY-827 heavy turbolaser turrets and a single medium dual turbolaser cannon.[2]

At some point during the war, a Venator II that served within the Republic's Open Circle Fleet was located on the surface of the[1] Republic capital world[6] of Coruscant[1] in the Core Worlds region,[6] in the government's cruiser staging area. The vessel was adorned with red livery.[1] Later, following the war's end, the Venator II became part of the Galactic Empire's naval forces, where at least one served within an Imperial fleet alongside several other vessels, including TIE/sa bombers. The Venator II was painted in gray and was not equipped with a dual turbolaser cannon.[3]
