The Secutor Battle Carrier -- the Venator's Big Brother Explained

The Secutor-class Star Destroyer, also known as the Secutor-class battlecarrier, was a carrier in the Imperial Navy and possibly the Republic Navy.

Compared to other Imperial Navy vessels of its size (e.g., the Allegiance-class battlecruiser), this Star Destroyer class was very light in terms of weapons output, merely possessing 15 heavy turbolaser batteries, 15 light turbolasers, 15 battleship-class ion cannon batteries, 16 medium ion cannons, and 12 tractor beam projectors, several of which lined the dorsal superstructure, on a diagonal ridge in front of the command tower. The light weapons screen, as well as the carrier role it serves, was the primary reason for it being officially considered a Star Destroyer instead of a battlecruiser despite its size being closer to the latter scale.
