The Maw fleet was the fleet of four Imperial I-class Star Destroyers built by Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin to guard Maw Installation, under the command of Admiral Natasi Daala. The ships included were the Gorgon, the Basilisk, the Hydra, the Manticore, and two Crusader-class corvettes.
After the fleet left the Maw to attack the New Republic, the fleet was slowly destroyed. Hydra was lost when Han Solo flew the Sun Crusher through its bridge, Manticore was lost during the Attack on Mon Calamari, Basilisk was destroyed when Kyp Durron used the Sun Crusher to destroy the Cauldron Nebula. Only the Gorgon survived to take part in the Battle of the Maw Installation, but was so damaged that it was scuttled upon reaching Supreme Warlord Harrsk's forces in the Deep Core.
