The Stathas-class freighter was an experimental model of starship designed by MandalMotors.
Characteristics[edit | edit source]
Even a dedicated starship aficionado would be hard pressed to identify ships of this class as they looked similar to countless other stock light freighters. They were experimental ship, with only nine ever having been produced, including the Tyaonon Ranger.
Like its name would suggest, from the stathas creature it is named for, the Stathas used a harmless appearance to hide its deadly capabilities. They were able to challenge most starfighters, including the Galactic Empire's TIE/LN starfighters with their quad laser cannons, while being tough enough to take a harsh beating from the weapons found on even the most modern of starfighters.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
This ship class is referred to as both the Statha-class as well as the Stathas-class. The Stathas class is used more frequently, as the Statha-class is only used in the RPG statistics. Therefore in this article it is referred to as the Stathas-class.
