—A Zeth Shipyards worker
The Punishment-class Eloquian Destroyer was a capital ship used by the Eloquian Alliance, New Republic, and Galactic Alliance. It was not as long as an Executor-class Star Dreadnought, nor did it have the firepower, but it was the pride of the Eloquian Navy. Ten of these were made, and eight were sent to the New Republic to assist them in fighting off the Yuuzhan Vong.
Although these battleships were barely used by the Eloquian Alliance, the New Republic used them in many battles. The New Republic used six of the eight Punishment-class Eloquian Destroyers in the Second Battle of Coruscant.
These ships were known as the Eloquians' greatest. The ships had more armor, better technology, more laser cannons, and they could take out a Star Destroyer with ease.
After 10 ABY, the Eloquian Alliance decided to have Zeth Shipyards construct these ships so that they would be able to protect themselves from any attack. Zeth Shipyards had never constructed anything this big, but decided that if they could construct the other types of Eloquian Destroyers, they would be able to construct these.
The ships took years to build, but were definitely worth it. The first one, launched in 14 ABY, was called the Alliance Glory, and was a few meters longer than the rest that were to be made.
