That is a huge list! Starwars.com databank doesn't have that much information on starships and vehicles.

Buy the "Star Wars Essential Guide to Vehicles and Ships" or whatever it is called. It will provide you with a ton of information. :)

Just remember to discount where those books say that the Executor is 8km long. :)
It's actually 17.6km long. ;)

Oh, and the AT-AT Walkers are taller and longer than it says too. :)

And the second Death Star isn't 160km in diameter. More like 900. :D

where'd you get that info from?

isn't an imperial SD: 1 mile long
and the SSD: 5 miles long

anyway, thats what i thought.
and there coming out with a new "vehicles and vessels" book, full with colored pics, in the fall! updated like the latest "characters" book.:)

Yes, and ISD is 1 mile (1.6km) long.
But the Executor is NOT 5 miles (8km) longer. The movies themself disproves this, and so does measurements done of the model used in the movies aswell.

StarWars.com has upgraded the lenght to a more realistc size of 12.8km (8miles?), but if you go by the movies, it comes out as much longer.

Most likely, they've taken the movies poster for ESB that states that the Executor is more than 5 times larger and powerfull than a standard Star Destroyer as actual fact. Key word here is more. ;)

If you accept the fact that ISDs in the films are 1.6km (1 mile) long, then there is no way it can be any less than atleast 17 km long, 11 times longer.

And for the Death Star II being 900km, the RotJ novel says so. :)
And the movies support it aswell.

Well, them upgrading it to 12.8km would be fine by me, but I heard they were gonna stick with the 5 mile fallacy. :(

I hope that's wrong though :)

The reason why I started this thread was to answer questions about the types of star destroyers in the orginal trilogy. I only know some information. I hope to a more clear picture of how big these starships are if they really existed today. Just something, I do in my free time.

Oh, ok. Here goes:

Star Destroyers:
Victory-Class, Mark I and II: 900 meters
Harrow-Class: 900 meters
Imperator*-Class, Mark I & II: 1600 meters
Republic-Class: 1250 meters
Dominator-Class: Is suggested to be around 1600 meters, but not sure. It's also more of an Interdictor though. It has Grav Wells on it.
Allegiance-Class: 2.2km
Ark Hammer (not really a star destroyer, more like a factory built inside a star destroyer shaped hull): Atleast longer than 6.4km. Only one is known to have been built.
Vengeance-Class: Longer than 10km. Again, the exact lenght is not known.

Super Star Destroyers:
Sovereign-Class: 15km
Executor**-Class: 17.6km
Eclipse-Class: 17.5km

* Same as the ones shown in the movies. Unfortunatly they have been publically known as Imperial-Class, which is stupid since they are all Imperial owned in the first place. The Victory is an Imperial Star Destroyer. The Allegiance is an Imperial Star Destroyer, etc....
"Oh, look! An Imperial Imperial-Class Star Destroyer!"
Nowhere to my knowledge has the movies or other canon sources ever said they where Imperial-Class star Destroyers, just that they where Imperial Star Destroyers. But early EU sources has said Imperator-Class. And they take presidence over later published material according to LucasFilms policy. :)
** Same goes for the Executor.
