The Tri-Scythe-class frigate was a variant of the Scythe-class main battle cruiser.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

A three-bladed Scythe in fleet-formation.

The Tri-Scythe-class was based on the Scythe-class, but had three blade-like structures instead of the single one featured on regular battle cruisers of the line. It was also larger and bulkier than contemporary Alliance frigates like the ShaShore-class, due to the increased amount of reactors and power generators needed to feed the weapons-batteries on the three forward blade-structures. The immense power-distribution system was similar to the one on the larger Scythe-class.[1]

In terms of weaponry, the Tri-Scythe-class had less than the Scythe-class, but more than the ShaShore-class. The ship was less maneuverable than the other frigates due to the extra power-support systems adding to the bulk of the craft, and the Tri-Scythe could be outflanked by enemy ships targeting its sides and rear. In addition to more armament, the carried craft complement was also a bit higher than on contemporary frigates.[1]

History[edit | edit source]

At least one ship of this type served the Galactic Federation of Free Alliances during the Sith–Imperial War. It escaped the Battle of Caamas at the war's end, and remained as part of the Galactic Alliance Core Fleet, on the run from Darth Krayt's Galactic Empire.[2] In 137 ABY, multiple Tri-Scythes participated in the Battle of Ralltiir.[3]
