What do you see insofar as the capabilities of the dock section?

What’s the operational scale of one of these bad jaspers? I’m assuming that it effectively accommodates [assuming it’s parked and serviced with a dedicated supply line] about an average planetary battle group’s worth of materiel: continuous repair/refit operations from starfighter up to to…heavy cruiser(?) and refits on star destroy and battle cruisers. This would include capacity to fabricate general refits/replacements and maybe even include full manufacturing lines for said systems and fighter scale craft–definitely your basic TIE- range. Maybe you could squeeze in a limited line or two for corvette-scale ships–like your average patrol boat or in-system type craft. Non-combat/extended… Read more »

But I would definitely see this having its own contingent of support craft.

Great. I take it the dorsal area between the hangars is a large pad for dropping off cargo pods.
