While starfighters took a premier role in the Battles of Yavin and Endor, capital ships remain the deciding force for total victory. Capital ships conduct battles on a grand scale. They do not engage in common dogfights, that is the province of small one and two man starfighters. When capital ships meet, they engage in a war between space-faring cities, the outcome resulting in thousands of deaths.
The New Republic Naval Fleet, under Alliance Military Command, still continues to re-invent itself. New ships, new starfighters, new upgrades, and new uses for older designs are constantly being introduced, continued, discontinued, reintroduced, and sometimes abandoned. The following ships are all currently in at least limited use throughout the Alliance Fleet.
