Description: The Kressh-class Frigate was another concerted effort by Subach-Innes to produce a ship for the Sith Empire that was capable of dealing with the next generation of smaller ships the Republic, Mandalorians, and other major galactic powers were outfitting their navies with. The trend of utilizing smaller and more vulnerable ships(such as the Subjugator) to carry fighters had proven to be an ultimately failed venture, showcasing a relapse of Imperial technological thought to that of the Tarkin Doctrine. Said doctrine's concept of "quantity over quality" hadn't fared the Empire well during its battles with the Rebel Alliance over eight centuries ago, nor had the logic of a Star Destroyer's "intimidation factor" served as a deterrent to exploiting its weaknesses. The question of why tactical responses had fallen back to the failed theory remained to be answered.

"When citizens look at a Star Destroyer and then compare it to the craft which might be mustered to attack it, they have a tendency to dismiss such a notion [of attacking it] as suicidal rather than approach the problem tactically." ―Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin
Reducing the fighter capacity to that of a mixed squadron, the Kressh focuses predominantly on ship-to-ship combat, a rugged and sturdy spaceframe housing the latest in starship reactor technology and weapons. Whether the decrease in fighter capacity will be exploited as a weakness remains to be seen.
