The SD Demon is a Shivan destroyer that was first encountered by the Terrans and Vasudans during the Great War. During that time, it was the only class of destroyer-type vessel belonging to the Shivans that accompanied the SD Lucifer. While the Demon lacks the planetary bombardment capabilities, hull strength and sheath shield system of the Lucifer-class, its cavernous fighterbay, capable of holding up to two fighter squadrons, as well as its numerous turrets, makes it a threat to any ship in the Galactic Terran Alliance and Parliamentary Vasudan Navy.
During the Second Shivan Incursion, the Shivans were known to have deployed at least one Demon-class destroyer against the Galactic Terran-Vasudan Alliance. Skirmishes with these vessels have revealed that, in the thirty-two years since the Great War, the Shivans have strengthened the hulls of these vessels and equipped them with beam weaponry.
The Demon's most significant failing is in the placement and durability of its engine subsystem, which can be easily neutralised by a bomber strike, rendering the destroyer immobile.

FS1 Tech Room Description
While the Demon-class Destroyer is easily one of the most massive ships we have yet seen, it is not the biggest or most powerful in the Shivan armada. However, it is still quite dangerous, with a plethora of missile turrets and two full squadrons of fighters. It is suggested that these capital ships be destroyed by bombers, as all cruisers that have attempted to engage a Demon have been destroyed.
The Demon is a Class A threat in any allied system.
FS2 Tech Room Description
The SD Demon class of Shivan destroyers is much smaller than the Lucifer class but very heavily armed and extremely dangerous. Demons are known to carry numerous wings of fighters and bombers.
