From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

Assault ship was a generic term used to describe myriad capital and starfighter scale vehicles meant for use in an offensive capacity.

The Acclamator class was referred to as an assault ship,[1] as was the All Terrain Rapid Deployment Pod,[2] which was small enough to fit hundreds within a ship similar to the Acclamator.[3]
