The Imperial Escort Carrier was used in the Lucasarts Tie Fighter game. It was stronger than a Corellian Corvette, nearly as strong as a Nebulon-B (difficult to destroy), but a bit weaker than a Star Destroyer.
In the game it was usually used by the Empire to transport experimental Tie Fighters like the Tie Advanced (Based off fo Darth Vader's Tie), or the Tie Defender. However, the Rebels were able to get a few of them.
Because of its massive size and shape, in one game of Battle 6: Arms Race, one IEC is named Hinnenberg - Hindenberg.
If you're gonna take one out in battle, use heavy rockets.
