Damorian Manufacturing Corp. Carrack Cruiser v1

The model and textures have been created by General Ramos as a 3do for 'Dark Forces 2: Jedi Knight' and not as an opt in August 2005. The complicated conversion has been completed by Berruga.

The Carrack-class light cruiser, also known as Carrack-class gunship, was a cruiser first used by the Republic Navy in the last years of the Galactic Republic during the Clone Wars.

It was later an important addition to the Imperial Navy; although It just had 350 meters long, the small combat cruisers were heavily armed and were very fast for a vessel of its type.

Two weapon configurations were known for this class: one with ten heavy turbo lasers, twenty laser cannons designed to defend against starfighters and missiles, and five tractor beam projectors, and an alternative version which replaced the flak lasers with ion cannons. In either version, the Carrack was very heavily armed for its size, a feature which it coupled with impressive speed and manoeuvrability.

In addition, the survivability of the design was enhanced by safety devices built into the hull to strengthen the space frame and provided extra protection for the crew. Reinforced bulkheads and a compartmentalized design made Carrack's tough for their size, and these were combined with independent life-support systems in different sections of the hull to lessen the dangers of hull breaches. Even when Carrack's were destroyed, it was by no means uncommon to find survivors unharmed inside the broken wreckage of their ships.

However, the small size of the ship, especially when combined with the additional reinforcement and safety equipment, meant that there was no room available for an internal hangar bay. Instead, an exterior rack was added for up to five TIE series starfighters for use on reconnaissance or courier duties.

The ship's controls were also simple and automated enough so that just two people could operate the vessel, although in normal circumstances, they carried a crew of 1,092 and a small Army contingent of 142 soldiers.

Hoersh-Kessel Drive, Inc. R60 T-Wing Interceptor

Like the A-wing, the T-wing was a light fast-response starfighter. The ship's speed was similar to a TIE Interceptor, but it also included hyperdrive capability. With shield and hull strength similar to that of the Z-95 Headhunter, this craft would not last long if it was hit accurately by even a medium-power salvo.

It had three H-K 5J MK. II afterburning ion engines and was armed with light laser cannons and proton torpedo launchers.

Maneuverability was another disappointment to its designers, as it was less maneuverable than the A-wing. As per the A-wing, weapons were light, with only dual laser cannons being fitted in order to maintain maneuverability. However, the T-wing's warhead load was equal to that of an X-wing, making it a good multi-role fighter in the hands of a competent pilot.

The interceptor had several flaws, namely its cheap construction using poor-quality materials. Its shields were additionally too light for its role. On top of its limited memory, the navicomputer was obsolete and full of coding errors.

The Rebels used this fighter for only a short time before deciding to sell it to neutral factions, hoping to at least gain a profit. Unexpectedly, the T-wing proved very effective in the hands of such pilots as the nomadic pirate leader Ali Tarrak, and the fighter quickly became popular with independents and proliferated across the galaxy.

Additionally, it was popular in the Outer Rim due to its low price and favorable service packages offered by Hoersch-Kessel salesmen.

Although it never saw much use in the Rebel Alliance, they nonetheless created a model for the starfighter to distribute to attendees of Remembrance Day, their analog to Empire Day.

TransGalMeg Industries. Xiytiar Transport

The TransGalMeg Xiytiar-class Transport with his 164.8-meter of cargo ship was capable of moving 5,000 metric tons of cargo. They were manned by a crew of two, and could carry 12 additional passengers. Many pilots considered them the least elegant of any starship every designed for use. The Xiytiar-class transport became one of the older types of transport in service which was no longer produced new but still used in many Outer Rim regions highly modified for several purposes.

These Vessels had a second live during the Galactic Civil War when the Rebel Alliance technicians started to acquire his fame for modifying combat starships but also for converting transports or other non-military craft to at least light combat ships.

One example of this category were the highly modified Xiytiar-class transports the Rebel Alliance managed to convert from the original old models they obtained. The result was a new kind of vessel for military duty, the 'Rebel Light Frigate' these ships were intended to be a picket ships, in order to support the larger ships of the fleet. The Light Frigate was equipped with Turbo lasers as well as anti-starfighter Laser Cannons. Most of the cargo space of the original transport in the forward section had been converted into additional space for frigate scale shield generators, crew quarters and a small hangar bay, which only could house a bunch of starfighter scale ships. To guarantee a safe docking manoeuvre of small vessels like starfighter's, the ship was equipped with a Tractor Beam Projector. The Light Frigate also carried 20 naval troops for the case that the ship should be boarded.

During the conflict the Imperial Forces also used many of the original Xiytiar transports as expeditionary Fleets logistics support, as much as Outer Rim installations and outposts re-supply.

Corellian Corvette

Corellian Engineering Corp. Corellian Corvette

The Corellian Corvette is one of the most common ships in the galaxy. Its length and weaponry qualify it as a capital ship, but it is more often used by ambassadors and traders as personal transport vehicles. Most craft models designed by the Corellian Engineering Corporation (and Corellian's in general) are sturdy, reliable vessels, and the Corvette is no exception. Capable of traveling long distances with minimal upkeep, well armed to ward off pirates, and spacious enough for profitable trading runs, the Corellian Corvette is an old standby.

Corellian Corvettes are called "Blockade Runners" by pirates and smugglers, and for good reason. The Corvette presents a very small target area, and its six turbolasers are evenly spaced around the hull, leaving little blind spot. (A blind spot does exist, however, directly behind the engine bank.) Its shields and hull are strong, and its eleven powerful engines propel it with a speed almost equalling most starfighter's. This ship is capable of evading capture by all but the most powerful ships, a necessary quality; it is often used for purposes that tend towards the shady side.

Princess Leia was traveling in a Corellian Corvette when she was apprehended and captured by Darth Vader above Tatooine. Her ship, the Tantive IV (pronounced Tan-Tiv-E), had long been an ambassadorial ship for the royal house of Alderaan.
