So, the site has been on going with tons of changes to material, recon of events or details and on the plus side a much smoother navigation. Down side is that there is VERY little detail on the items covered and I hope they will add more over time. Some of the changes noted that I've covered thus far.

ATAT's are now 22.5m tall rather then the original 15m tall. The statement of how many troops they carry has been removed though it used to be forty.

Providence Destroyer is now counted as a Dreadnought, growing from 1055m to 2177m.

ISD, the 60/60 TL/IC listing has been removed and given no replacement.

The formerly Super Star Destroyer that was re-conned as Star Dreadnought has been re-titled again as simply Super Star Destroyer.

Clone Troopers, the number detail that was short lived (and so so so hated by just about everyone) has been removed.

Storm Troopers, no long called "The Emperor's loyal fodder" are now considered a horde with "Great skill" and noted for their abilities of survival and operations.

Senate Guard are no longer just a honor position with a few police like operations but are now the "Commandos of the old Senate". Weird much???

Corellian Corvette CR90 is just titled as the "Alderaan Diplomatic Cruiser". Though its not stated if this is the Ship Class as a whole or the just the Tantive IV. This one is the most confusing changes to the listings so far as its listed as a cruiser in both class and design, but yet it remains so small at only 126m. This could be a number of things including but not limited to the fact that Alderaan lacks a large scale navy and indeed this could just be the cruiser scale for them. Or it could be a term of design and still simply called a "Cruiser" due to its mission type. Hopefully they will and more to this later.

Venator Class Star Destroyer is back to being the Republic Attack Cruiser. Though this is to me the lightest of changes so far.

Also, the CIS are given a better reason for rebelling against the Republic other then "Just because they are evil".
