Armaments included 20 turbolaser cannons, 10 turbolaser batteries, ten ion cannons, and some point-defense weapons.The Order of Battle considered two Strike-class cruisers the equivalent of one Victory-class Star Destroyer.In addition, the interior storage space of the Strike-class could be modified for different missions. The most common sets were designed for planetary garrison, space superiority, and planetary assault. Planetary garrison loadouts included an assault company, two AT-STs, one AT-AT, and several support speeders; space superiority included up to three squadrons of TIEs; the planetary assault loadout included five AT-ATs. However, the internal storage spaces and skeletal structure proved weak against enemy fire once the shields were down.
