Disney Canon ISD vs. nBSG Galactica

Alright, so in a one-on-one fight, which capital ship would emerge victorious? A bog-standard Disney-canon ISD, or the reimagined Galactica?

Both starships will have standard armaments, as well as full compliments of TIE Fighters and Vipers.

I'm trying to imagine how a turbolaser bolt would react to the flak barrage "shield" from the pilot.

At the very least Glactica could shove the Star Destroyer into a planet.

The Galactica can't compete, shield are inesistent, the armor is good but not against SD's turbolaser. The Galactica's nuke are have a good power but not sufficient for the firepower of the SD. Also for the hyperdrivefor me is better the SD.

Shields would seem to be a serious advantage for the ISD, though we don't know how they'd deal with kinetics or 50 megaton nukes. By energy that's 'merely' fifty of the largest turbolaser bolts (roughly) but the power, given the near-instantaneous detonation, will probably be tremendous.

We've seen Republic transports blown apart in atmosphere by sub-megaton fire over Ryloth, IIRC, so unless the argument is that they were unshielded when coming in over a hostile surface then one's mileage could definitely vary.
