The CR70 corvette was a predecessor of the CR90 corvette, produced by the Corellian Engineering Corporation.[4]

Characteristics[]

The Sundered Heart, one of Bail Organa's personal vessels during the Clone Wars

The Vanguard c20 retrofit suite was offered to older model corvettes like the CR70 in order to bring them in line with the CR90 model.[4] Judging from the use of CR90 corvettes in the years leading up to the Clone Wars,it was heavily used by the Galactic Republic. The CR70 Model was a much older design and likely less heavily armed than its future cousin.[5]The Rebel Alliance had several CR70's in usage.

Behind the scenes[]

The CR70 corvette was created as a way to explain the differences between the Tantive IV as it appeared in Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith as opposed to Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope and other previous appearances. However, the Tantive IV's appearance in Revenge of the Sith was later retconned in the 2010 Star Wars Blueprints: Rebel Edition to be the Sundered Heart. Leland Chee confirmed this as a retcon, citing the difficulty of explaining the differences in appearance between the films.
