The Providence-class Carrier was a variant of the Providence-class Dreadnought utilized by the naval forces of the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the Clone Wars. At some point in the war, one such carrier was present in an engagement within the atmosphere of a terrestrial body, in which two Republic Low Altitude Assault Transport/infantry gunships and two Clone Z-95 Headhunters flew by it from either side. Following the end of the war, another Providence-class Carrier became part of the naval forces of the Alliance to Restore the Republic, where it served in an Alliance fleet alongside multiple over vessels in an engagement in space against forces of the Galactic Empire.

Characteristics[]

A carrier variant of the Providence-class Dreadnought, the Providence-class Carrier possessed a long and bulbous hull of gray color, which featured several blue stripes and the emblem of the Confederacy of Independent Systems on both its port and starboard sides. It also retained a tapering bow and a forward-mounted[1] command bridge[3] on its dorsal surface, as well as[1] a conning tower[3] that erected from the vessel's dorsal surface near the aft.[1]

Furthermore, situated along the carrier's hull, the Providence was equipped[1] with several sensor and communications masts, as well as an interstellar communications array[3] and at least[1] one creveld-4 radial ion drive.[2] Later, during its service in the Rebel Alliance's naval forces, the Providence-class Carrier was equipped with additional engine units and a starboard wing, as well as featured red paint on its starboard hull towards its aft.[4]

History[]

A Providence-class Carrier, in service to the Rebel Alliance.

At some point during the Clone Wars fought between the Galactic Republic and Confederacy of Independent Systems, an engagement occurred in the atmosphere of a terrestrial body, where the Republic fought against at least one Providence-class Carrier. While in the terrestrial body's atmosphere, the carrier encountered two Republic Low Altitude Assault Transport/infantry gunships and two Clone Z-95 Headhunters, both of which flew by either sides of the vessel.[1]

Following the end of the war, at least one Providence-class Carrier came to serve as part of the Rebel Alliance's naval forces. During its service to the Alliance, the carrier participated in an engagement alongside a rebel fleet of several other starships, such as a single Recusant-class light destroyer, a T-65B X-wing starfighter and a BTL-A4 Y-wing assault starfighter/bomber. In the engagement, the Providence fought against multiple Imperial-class Star Destroyers and TIE/ln space superiority starfighters of the Galactic Empire.[4]

The Providence-class Carrier was introduced on a card of the same name in the 2021 Invisible Hand Expansion Pack by Fantasy Flight Games, for the miniatures game Star Wars: Armada.[1]
