This article is about the Legends Republic frigate. You may be looking for the similar-looking canon Longbeam cruiser.

The Axehead frigate was a capital ship model used by the Republic Navy during the Mandalorian Wars.

Description[]

Unlike other Republic designs with a hammerheaded bow-section, this design had a horizontal rather than vertical protrusion, to aid in landing and deploying troops. The frigate was capable of atmospheric entry and could carry multiple speeder bike squads in its forward upper assault deck, unleashing them onto the battlefield upon landing. The aerial vehicle deck was above the central axis of the vessel, while a second assault deck was placed below, with a platform door lowering to deploy ground troops.

History[]

One of these frigates deployed Revanchist Jedi Knights onto Essien to battle Mandalorian Neo-Crusaders who had taken the planet weeks before.
