The Sith dreadnaught was a classification of warship used by the Sith Empire during the Great Hyperspace War and later by another Sith Empire during the Jedi Civil War. These dreadnaughts resembled lanvaroks in appearance.
In 5000 BBY, two Sith dreadnaughts, Harbinger and Omen, were mining Lignan ore on a moon of Phaegon III for use in the upcoming Battle of Kirrek, when they were ambushed by Jedi Master Relin Druur and Druur's apprentice, Drev Hassin. Hassin sacrificed himself by crashing the Jedi's Infiltrator starfighter into Harbinger's bridge, causing the dreadnaught to crash into Omen right as the two ships jumped into hyperspace. This caused the Omen to crash-land on the remote world of Kesh, where its survivors formed the Lost Tribe of Sith, while the Harbinger entered an unstable hyperspace tunnel and traveled through time to 41.5 ABY. The latter was shortly after destroyed by Druur.
Sometime between 3959 BBY and 3956 BBY, a Galactic Republic-allied Zabrak mercenary raided one of these capital ships. He completed his mission aboard the starship and escaped, but feared for his life, purchasing a heavy, unique suit of battle armor to protect himself from Sith assassins that might be after him.
