A modified version of the Gozanti-class cruiser was used by the CIS Navy during the Clone Wars between the Confederacy of Independent Systems and the Galactic Republic.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

The Gozanti-class cruisers owned by the Separatist Alliance were modified for their own combat use.[1] As such, the cruisers were painted in Separatist livery and had two sublight engines. Similar to the standard civilian model[2] manufactured by Corellian Engineering Corporation,[1] the Separatist version had one dorsal and two ventral rectennas,[2] as well as landing gear,[3] and a ventral twin laser cannon turret.[2]

Role[edit | edit source]

The Separatist Gozanti-class cruiser acted as a warship, and escorted larger Separatist vessels while in a fleet.[2]

History[edit | edit source]

The Separatist Gozanti-class cruiser was introduced into the Confederacy of Independent Systems Navy by[2] 20 BBY[4] during the Clone Wars. At this time, at least eight Separatist Gozanti-class cruisers formed part of a Separatist fleet led by the ST-series super tactical droid Aut-O.[2] Afterwards, a number of Separatist Gozanti-class cruisers were also present on Oba Diah while Jedi Generals Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker dueled Separatist Head of State Count Dooku, secretly the Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Tyranus while on a mission.[5]

During a mission to Utapau by Kenobi and Skywalker later in the war, several Separatist Gozanti-class cruisers were landed inside the main hangar of a Separatist Providence-class Dreadnought that was part of a fleet led by Supreme Commander of the Droid Army General Grievous. The cruisers, along with the rest of the fleet, was destroyed when a large kyber crystal inside a DH-Omni Support Vessel exploded.[3] During the war, the Republic Navy was always placed on high alert when Gozanti-class cruisers were spotted because the Confederacy and the Black Sun crime syndicate modified many such cruisers to serve as warships and smuggling vessels.[1]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

The Separatist Gozanti-class cruiser first appeared in "Secret Weapons," an episode of the fifth season of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars television series.[2]
