"Look. A Separatist dreadnought. The king's murderer must have fled there."
Jedi General Anakin Skywalker on Toydaria[src]

The Providence-class dreadnought, also known as the Providence-class cruiser-carrier or the Providence-class carrier/destroyer, and more commonly known as the Separatist dreadnought, was a capital ship that the Confederacy of Independent Systems utilized during the Clone Wars. The dreadnought consisted of two variants, one smaller model that measured 1,088 meters long and a larger model that measured 2,177.35 meters long.


"Analysis of data received by the command center's friend-or-foe indicator confirms that the capital ship is a downsized version of a Separatist Providence-class cruiser-carrier, modified with modules taken from CIS frigates and destroyers. Ships of the sort made a name for themselves during the war by jamming signals and destroying HoloNet relays."
―An Imperial technician, to Moff Wilhuff Tarkin[src]

A Providence-class destroyer destroys multiple enemy vessels.

High-ranking Separatist commanders like Count Dooku,[14] Admiral Trench,[8] and General Grievous used Providence-class dreadnoughts as their flagships throughout the Clone Wars. Grievous commanded his fleets from several dreadnoughts throughout the war, including one from which he commanded the opening phases of the Battle of Kamino,[15] and one during the campaign against the Shadow Collective.[11] Grievous eventually transferred his flag to the dreadnought known as the Invisible Hand.[3] At the Battle of Christophsis, Admiral Trench commanded Separatist forces from the dreadnought Invincible.[4] Other dreadnoughts in the Confederacy navy included the Lucid Voice.[12]

Behind the scenesEdit

The Providence-class dreadnought first appeared in Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith, and was featured in a number of episodes from the Star Wars: The Clone Wars television series. In the original continuity, the Expanded Universe established the ship as the Providence-class carrier/destroyer, but with the discarding of the Expanded Universe in favor of a new continuity on April 25, 2014, the initial official name was "Separatist dreadnought." The official Star Wars Encyclopedia uses the "dreadnought" spelling, though the actual URL for the ship's entry uses the "dreadnaught" spelling.
