"Commander Cody, do you have the exact coordinates of the command ship yet?"
―Obi-Wan Kenobi, to clone commander "Cody"[src]

A Recusant-class light destroyer was used by the Supreme Commander of the Confederate droid army, General Grievous at the Battle near the Arda system and Battle of Saleucami as a command ship.

Description[edit | edit source]

Grievous's command ship flanked by three Munificent-class frigates

The Recusant-class light destroyer[1] surpassed the Republic's Venator-class Star Destroyer in length and could easily outmatch its firepower with some assistance from Munificent-class star frigates. It had several large cannons positioned near the bridge section, which was itself based on the Munificent-class' bridge tower. There was also heavy turbolaser on the prow. It could carry a C-9979 landing craft on its ventral surface and, unlike regular Recusants, was equipped with hangars,[2] one of the modifications unique to the ship.[4]

History[edit | edit source]

The vessel was used to board Eeth Koth's flagship and kidnap the Jedi Master, setting a trap for the Republic task force sent to save him and in turn kidnap Grievous. It exchanged fire with the Venator but neither ship was badly damaged. It was later damaged and left to drift after capturing a Arquitens-class light cruiser and targeting it at point blank range.[2] When blowing up the Arquitens, it was hit by debris and most of the crew including the main tactical droid was destroyed by Anakin Skywalker and Adi Galli. Most of the commando droids, super battle droids, and MagnaGuards onboard were destroyed by Obi-Wan Kenobi and Eeth Koth. The rest of the crew other than a few remaining battle droids were put on the landing craft going down to Salecumi. It is assumed that Anakin Skywalker destroyed the ship and most of General Grievous' fleet when saying he finished the battle in space.
