Something to keep in mind with an ISD - it is more than just
a dreadnaught - they are a mobile representation of the Empire,
capable of reducing planetary civilisations to slag. The carry
large numbers of fighters, troops and heavy ground assualt
vehicles as well as just being something to attach weapons to.

Personally, I don't think FT can handle ISDs effectively, though
my recent watching of the IMPs film has made me want to try again.
