A type of cruiser was used by the Separatists during the Clone Wars.[1]

Characteristics[]

A ship of this class over Kashyyyk.

Ships of this type were seemingly of the design philosophy of the Geonosians, and it is believed that engineers from that planet contributed the design of this vessel to the Separatist cause, similar to the better-known Nantex-class territorial defense starfighter. The presence of these vessels at Geonosis during the inception of the Clone Wars seems to confirm this hypothesis.

These cruisers also bore a slight resemblance to an elongated Venator-class Star Destroyerfrom the opposing forces of the Republic Navy and the Providence-class Dreadnought utilized by Separatist forces. Little is known about the class itself, except that it was capable of operating inside an atmosphere and that it was armed with at least two dual turbolaser cannons.[1]

History[]

Ships of this class were present at the battles of Geonosis and Kashyyyk.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

A ship of this class over Geonosis.

This class of ship first appeared in Star Wars: Republic Commando during missions on Geonosis and Kashyyyk. It is also briefly seen in Star Wars: The Force Unleashed in the versions developed for PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii. It appears in the Raxus Prime level. After defeating a Junkyard Titan, Starkiller uses his Force abilities to create a bridge out of one such ship, lodged in the piles of scrap that cover the planet.
