The Allegiance-class was in service with the Imperial Navy by 3 ABY. During a rendezvous with the elite unit Death Squadron, prior to the Battle of Hoth, several Allegiance battlecruisers formed part of a fleet that was observed by Captain Firmus Piett and Death Squadron's commander, Admiral Kendal Ozzel.

In service, the Allegiance was known as a "Heavy Star Destroyer" and was noted as being typical of the kind of ship that fit the "Star Cruiser" designation of warship. Due to its size, power and combat focus, the class was afforded the designation of "battlecruiser" by the Republic Navy War College at Anaxes, using their warship classification system.[1] "Star Cruiser", on the other hand, was recognized only by some military historians as a designation for smaller models of battlecruisers. The distinction was used by some to separate ships like the Allegiance from larger battlecruiser models like the Praetor Mark II.

At some point during the time of the Galactic Empire, at least three ships of this class were serviced at the massive Naval Station Validusia in the Validusia system. The system was located in the Expansion Region and its Imperial facilities could maintain several heavy Imperial warships at once, including both Star Destroyers, battlecruisers like the Allegiance and large dreadnoughts and fleet replenishment ships.

During a fleet exercise some time after the Arms Race campaign, a battlecruiser of this class was refueled by an Altor-class replenishment ship, alongside an Assertor-class Star Dreadnought.

Ar - 18

Armour - Ignores attacks that do 150md points of damage or less. Anything more than 150md applies all damage done.

NOTES: 1 - Depleting the MDC of the main body will put the Carrier out of commission. All internal systems will shut down, including life support and internal gravity. The ship itself will be an unsalvageable floating wreck.

1B - Destroying the Command Tower will effectively render the ship inoperative and set the ships effectively adrift in space though the main hull will still have auxiliary power, life support and minimal maneuvering on docking thrusters.

2 - Destroying the sensor will deprive the ship of all forms of long range communications, radar and targeting. The range and targeting capabilities of the secondary systems are equal to that of a starfighter at best. The ship can still operate, but is at -3 on initiative, -3 to strike, and number of attacks per melee of the weapon systems are reduced by half.

3 - Destroying the hangers will greatly impair the carrier's ability to deploy and recover aircraft. Under normal operations the carrier can launch or recover up to starfighters or shuttles per turn. If the main hanger is destroyed this number drops to , and each hanger deck destroyed reduces this number by . If all hangers are destroyed the carrier cannot deploy any craft until at least one hanger is repaired.

4 - Depleting the MDC of the main engines will force the ship to rely on its secondary engines. Depleting the MDC of the main engines AND secondary engines will leave the ship adrift in space. If in an atmosphere, the ship will crash.

5 - Shields regenerate at 200 mdc per melee. Only if a generator is damaged will the ability for shields to regenerate be hampered in any way.
