The Cardan V-class space station was the fifth model of Cardan-class space station built for the Galactic Empire. It was the ultimate in the Cardan designs and served as both a defensive emplacement and shipyard. It was, with the right resources, capable of building and repairing an Imperial-class Star Destroyer.
These stations supplemented the earlier Cardan-class models. Three Cardan V-class space stations were present during the Battle for the Eclipse in 4 ABY, where a combined Zann Consortium and Rebellion fleet destroyed them all.
