While a frigate in size, the 450-meter long Strike-class was capable of challenging larger Alliance cruisers with its surprisingly heavy load of firepower, strong shields, and high sublight speed.
The order of battle considered two Strike-class cruisers the equivalent of one Victory-class Star Destroyer.
In addition, the interior storage space of the Strike-class could be modified for different missions. The most common sets were designed for planetary garrison, space superiority, and planetary assault. Planetary garrison loadouts included an assault company, two AT-STs, one AT-AT, and several support speeders; space superiority included up to three squadrons of TIEs; the planetary assault loadout included five AT-AT. However, the internal storage spaces and skeletal structure proved weak against enemy fire once the shields were down.
