    ^Even though the B2's predecessor was a common victim of Rebel raids, the B2 was more commonly seen working with its original designers: the Galactic Empire (though some still found their way into the Rebel Alliance fleet). During designing, the profile and shape of the B2 would remain similar to the original Nebulon, but the B2 had noticeable improvements. The forward pod was split so that it would create an inverted V-shape, effectively making two 'chins' to store more weapons on the ship. The connecting spar was also strengthened to reduce the possibility of the ship splitting in two and was slightly shorter in length compared to the Nebulon-B. Overall performance of the B2 was noticeably better than the original. Sublight speed was 17% faster, and shield strength and hull durability were both improved. The Nebulon-B2 was also armed with a concussion missile launcher, which was not normally mounted on its predecessor.

    ^The B2's that were part of the Alliance continued to serve the New Republic, whilst the Empire was simultaneously losing them. By 6 ABY, the Imperial Remnant stopped producing them and, likely, sold them to other parties. Their numbers had been reversed as, by this time, the New Republic had fully absorbed the design into their roster. Zsinj was also known to use these ships, along with the original Nebulon, Corellian Corvettes and other ships also used by the New Republic.
