The CR-20 troop carrier was a type of transport ship used to deploy small units of clone troopers.

Characteristics[]

A CR-20 defends itself from a Rogue-class starfighter.

The CR-20 troop carrier was armed with two double turbolaser cannons. It was sixty meters long and could carry up to forty clone troopers, twelve 74-Z speeder bikes, and their corresponding supplies. The carrier's crew consisted of two pilots, one communications officer, and three engineers.

History[]

Originally designed by the Corellian Engineering Corporation for use by its security forces, the Republic purchased surplus CR-20s one standard month after the First Battle of Geonosis. Despite this, they were widely unseen in the Republic Navy early in the Clone Wars.[4] It was not until the Battle of JanFathal, where Anakin Skywalker piloted a CIS-owned CR-20 to rescue Republic Intelligence operative Hallena Devis, that the usefulness of the CR-20 Troop Carrier became evident.[4] Generally, they were used in situations where the large Acclamator-class assault ships were impractical or unneeded.
