The Interdictor IM-418 Cruiser, sometimes shortened to Interdictor Cruiser or just Interdictor, was a medium starship used as an immobilizer. It was not very heavily armed. It was used mainly to draw ships out of or keep them from jumping into hyperspace, using their large gravity well projectors.

While short on strengths, the Interdictor can prove a valuable asset to any battle. It's primary role is not combat, remember that, it can fend off fighter attacks to an extent, but anything else it's pretty much an easy target for. These are best kept behind all the action while they activate their Gravity Well Generators, hyperspace will be disabled until the Interdictor turns off the Gravity Well Generators or is destroyed. It can also jam missile and torpedo guidance, which can be activated along with the gravity well generator at the same time, so this is a good idea so if any bombers or missile frigates come along it can fend them off.
Firstly, the Interdictor is not meant for combat, only for jamming missile guidance and stopping enemy hyperspace retreats, it serves no real benefit in combat purposes, why? Because although if the Gravity Well Generator and the Missile Jamming is activated, it is still going to be extremely vulnerable to capital ships and frigates, and will require you to keep capital ships and frigates away from the Interdictor if you wish to keep it alive to stop missile guidance and prevent enemy hyperspace retreats. These things are also fairly lightly armored and armed and are absolutely useless on defense.
