The Imperial Interdictor was a vessel a six-hundred-meter-long cruiser that appeared in the Disney XD animated series Star Wars Rebels, used by the Galactic Empire. Built on the standard Vindicator-class heavy cruiser hull, these cruisers severed a special purpose in the Imperial Navy.
Equipped with gravity well projectors designed to pull ships from hyperspace or prevent them making the jump to lightspeed, the Interdictor became a valuable addition to the Imperial Navy.
Interdictor cruisers were designed by Sienar Fleet Systems, makers of the TIE Fighter. At first appearing to be a small Star Destroyer, the Interdictor was recognizable because of the ship's four prominent globes; each globe housed a single gravity-well projector. Interdictors also had twenty quad laser cannons for short-range combat against other capital ships. Imperial doctrine called for Interdictors to be placed on a perimeter of a battle area. This gave Interdictor captains a clear view of any battle so they could precisely target the placement of gravity wells to prevent rebel ships from escaping into hyperspace.
- The Interdictor bridge is built from a Star Destroyer bridge set, but with circular control stations in the crew pits.
- The Interdictor design in "Stealth Strike" is much larger than what was originally posited in the Legends description of this vehicle, suggesting this is a more powerful model than previous depictions.
