The Acclamator-class assault ship, alternatively referred to as the Acclamator-class trans-galactic military transport ship or Acclamator-class transgalactic military assault ship, or by the shorter names Acclamator-class transport, Acclamator-class troopship, or the rarer Acclamator I transport, was an assault starship created for the Galactic Republic by Rothana Heavy Engineering. It was the predecessor of the Star Destroyer line. The Acclamator-class vessels are used by the Allies,Imperialist,Hegemony, Axis and the Horde.
The 752-meter-long Acclamator-class assault transport carried thousands of Republic clone troopers into battle. The Acclamator favored a wedge or dagger shaped design due to its effectiveness—it allowed concentration of firepower while minimizing target profile. This basic design was used in a number of larger craft predating it and would define Imperial ships for decades to come. These ships were armed with 4 heavy torpedo launch tubes; 24 point-defense laser cannons, rated at 6 megatons per shot; and 12 quad turbolaser turrets, each rated at a maximum of 200 gigatons per shot. They were also armed with concussion missiles. The sensor and communications suites were located at the front of the ship's command tower. The hull armour of Acclamator-class vessels was impregnated with ultra-dispersive neutronium that withstood and spread massive energy blasts. Fusion rockets fired by enemy forces barely made a scratch on the hull as a result.
Groups of these ships could perform a "Base Delta Zero", an orbital bombardment that would exterminate all life on the planet. The later Acclamator II-class could also serve as star frigates to support their landing groups. In addition to ground landings, Acclamator-class ships were capable of water landings, as displayed at the Battle of Mon Calamari.
Acclamator-class ships also carried support equipment and vehicles, used to provide troopers with heavy battlefield support. Each Acclamator-class ship held 320 speeder bikes, used by soldiers for fast battlefield reconnaissance and patrol duties. Eighty gunships were carried to insert personnel, vehicles, and cargo into battle zones in addition to providing close air support. Gunships were suspended along an overhead circulating rail in the upper hangar for maintenance procedures during travels. A lower, smaller hangar area was used to embark and disembark ground troops and material when landed. The two levels were connected with elevator platforms. Most of the passenger and barrack decks were located on the upper levels of an Acclamator-class ship.
