I'm guessing that there will be a land mission that takes place in it's interior and the Eclipse itself will be treated more like a planet or an asteroid base rather than a ship in the game. It has been stated that some of the new land maps will be interior settings. A mission in the Eclipse and one in the Death Star II would be obvious places to have interior maps.
Maybe so, but as you can see in the videos released so far it will clearly also be able to fire at units in space, much like the Death Star can fire at planets.
