|The Gladiator-class Star Destroyer was a class of warship used by the Galactic Empire. There were two variants, the Gladiator I-class Star Destroyer and the Gladiator II-class Star Destroyer. Basically it was a small Star Destroyer that shared its keel design with the Broadside-class cruiser. A ventral protrusion on the hull appeared to cover the ship's main reactor, but was also the location of several cannons. The class had two main thrusters and no visible secondary thrusters. It possessed an array of capital-grade torpedo or concussion missile launchers and turbolaser emplacements. Torpedo loading bays were located deep inside the ships, with automated loading arms controlled from a console next to the conveyor belt that fed munitions to the launchers.
