Description: For many years, the Invictus served valiantly as the Sith Empire's front-line Star Destroyer. Its armament and weaponry were the bane of the Republic's first-generation warships. Over time, while it grew severely outdated when compared to newer ships like the Tulak Hord, it was kept in service with minimal updates, likely due to its ability to carry a prefabricated garrison base. When the Ranator was introduced, however, the Invictus's days were over, and the numerous vessels were put into storage.
While outdated, Subach-Innes quickly purchased the lot of battle-worn Star Destroyers - sans systems and weapons, of course - and refitted them into two primary variants. The first was a training vessel, used by the Empire as a training school for TIE pilots. The entire complement consisted of TIE Caridas, the space filled by walkers carrying a mix of TIE Detonators and Fragmentor-class Target Drones used for live-fire target practice. As well, shuttles are carried, replacing the prefabricated garrison base originally used ground assault troops. The Royal Jewel, formerly captained by now-Grand Admiral Aken Bosch, is an example of this type.
The Empire's usage of the Invictuses stems from a desire to increase live-fire training exercises. Such training craft as the TIE Detonator and Fragmentor-class Target Drone had been developed to allow pilots in a TIE series craft the opportunity to engage and be engaged by enemies adequately simulating real fighters. This was so pilots could maintain the skills of experience from actual missions rather than the zero-chance-of-death of simulators, culling inferior pilots and making sure the most talented of the lot survived.
The second, and much more notable variant, was the export model. Designed as a full-scale upgrade, the export variant was the type purchased by the Mnenchei Dominion, refitted by Subach prior to being delivered into their hands. The weapons systems have been significantly improved, and while the complement has been trimmed, the vessel is as a whole superior to its original stock model. Ultimately, though, it is still inferior to the average Star Destroyer or analog belonging to the typical galactic power, and most major factions would likely use these vessels as second-line or supporting ships.
