The MC85 Star Cruiser was a heavy Star Cruiser manufactured by Mon Calamari Shipyards and Corellian Engineering Corporation after the Galactic Civil War. It was used by the New Republic fleet and the Resistance navy.[1]

One ship, the Raddus, served as the flagship of the Resistance navy, and was crucial in the evacuation of D'Qar. The bridge of the Raddus was destroyed in the following battle, and resulted in the deaths of most of the Resistance High Command, including Admiral Gial Ackbar, when it was attacked by First Order TIE fighters.[3]

It was subsequently destroyed during the attack on the Resistance fleet when Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo purposefully entered hyperspace through the Supremacy, splintering the massive vessel in two, with the debris cutting through twenty escorting Resurgent-class Battlecruisers.[3]

The MC85 Star Cruiser Raddus

Despite its large size, the MC85 was a fast cruiser. Even nearly thirty years after commission, the Dawn of Tranquility, in service with the Resistance under the name Raddus, was still able to outrun the First Order's modern battlecruisers and the massive Supremacy. Propelled by eleven sublight ion engines of different sizes, these massive ships were as fuel hungry as they were fast.[2]

Offensive and defensive systemsEdit

While undergunned for a typical ship of its size, featuring only a few dozen heavy turbolasers, heavy ion cannons, and point-defense laser cannon turrets in total as well as half a dozen proton torpedo launchers, the MC85 compensated for this with highly durable advanced deflector shields. These experimental shields that cocooned the ship were capable of repelling huge amounts of damage before failing, far more than most other ships.[1]
