Empire Star Wars Ships : Imperial Star Destroyer

"I maintain that the effectiveness of the Star Destroyer stems from not only its massive firepower, but from its
size.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 as suicidal rather than approach the problem tactically." ―Moff Wilhuff Tarkin

When assaulting planet Hoth, Darth Vader commanded the Executor and brought along a flotilla of Imperial-class vessels from Death Squadron to attack the planet. The Rebellion's heavy ion cannon, powered by the reactor of a Star Battlecruiser, easily overwhelmed individual Star Destroyer shields and rapidly disabled ships.

In the New Republic era, Imperial-class Star Destroyers continued to help larger vessels in operations like Operation Shadow Hand.

The Super Star Destroyer Allegiance led a task force of Imperial-class ships and World Devastators during the First Battle of Mon Calamari.
This was one of many fleets that struck out from the Core as part of the operation, which was plan at taking back most of the Galactic Empire's former territories.
Operation Shadow Hand saw a relatively heavy use of different types of Super Star Destroyers supported by Star Destroyers.
