But the others sound good.
indeed it does. well that takes the soverign out of the running.

Ok so the ships from 4-7 are:

Palleon
MC-140 Scythe
Meadiator
IMP Star duce

I have one issue with this, Mediator should be 4 (dude it is like 8km long, over 5x the size of a Pallaeon-class SD which is in turn bigger than a Scythe-class.)

#4. Mediator-class Battle Cruiser
#5. Pallaeon-class Star Destroyer
#6. MC-140 Scythe-class Main Battle Cruiser
#7. Imperial Star Destroyer MK. II (Imperial II-class)

Though now I'd like the to make things a little more complicated. The Imperious-class Star Destroyer is a Mon Cal designed Star Destroyer said to also have had superior armaments to previous standard Star Destroyers (which at that time was the Pallaeon-class). Also I think the armament on the Imperial II SD was superior to the Scythe-class. Might want to check that out.

Also, check out the Subjugator-class Heavy Cruiser. While it did have two of those massive ion cannons, there where four of them built and ion cannon tech isn't drastically advanced for the clone wars. I think they should be classified as a capital ship and would be ranked in #5 if we allowed them. It is up to Talon if they should be allowed though.

If all my points are agreed to the list would look like this

#4 Mediator
#5 Subjugator (still iffy on this)
#6 Imperious
#7 Pallaeon
#8 Imperial II
#9 MC-140 Scythe

Size doesn't always matter Star. Though question Talon, are we just focusing on weaponry here or are we suppose to encompass all things?

All things bro. Can't hold the metric just to firepower. Have to go the whole 9.

Mediator is like a massive MC-90... I mean, think of that firepower that the size allows combined with the shields Mon Cal ships are known for.

Alright so I still say the Scythe class be put above the Palleon. It doesn't require as many crew members, plus having more consumables and able to carry 7,000 more tons. Plus it is still able to engage a Palleon, despite having fewer weapons

Imperious-class goes above both imo.

That said I'll agree that Scythe might edge out Pallaeon in versatility with all else being relatively equal.

OK so scythe over pellaeon? That's the consensus?

Yeah, but put Imperious-class SD ahead of them both.

I'd actually put the "cross of fire" on the Scythe down as a win-loss situation. Most of its firepower was focused towards the front, if a Pellaeon got up on its side it would be boned, it's broadside capability was too low.
I'm not mean, you're just a sissy.
