REBEL ALLIANCE

 

A dedicated combat capital ship, it is designed to be fast and deadly. At 120 metres long, it usually carries eight double turbo laser canons, six quad laser canons, and four concussion missile launch tubes. Engines fill more than half its interior. With a small command crew and technical staff- the ship is an excellent antistarfighter platform. The new Republic makes extensive use of these vessels.

A type of large, heavy cruiser commissioned by the Old Republic, these ancient 600-metre long ships were the Navy's largest before the Victory Class Star Destroyer arrived. While slow and poorly armed by modern standards, a number of Dreadnaughts were refitted for bothEmpire and the Alliance.

These are the main star cruisers of the Alliance and New Republic fleet. Organic looking durable ships originally designed for pleasure cruises, these are as fast and almost as tough as the Imperial Star Destroyers. Each ship is unique because on Mon Calamari, they are considered works of art!. HOME ONE was Ackbar's command vessel during the assault of the Second Death Star.

These were originally Imperial Escort Ships but were captured by the Rebels and used in their fleet. They are 300 metres long. Standard medical equipment aboard the frigates is twelve turbolaser batteries and laser canons, two tractor beam projectors, two squadrons of starfighters, and powerful hyperdrive engines.

Cargo ships that are the workhorses of the galaxy, they haul goods from planet to planet. Lightly armed bulk freighters depend upon hyperdrive engines andwell patrolled space lanes to steer clear of trouble, Most of these midsized ships belong to private owners

These Rebel, and later New Republic ships are actually Imperial Dreadnaught heavy cruisers that have been painstakingly and cleverly modified to create combat starships 700 metres lonf. While Imperial ships required crew of 16,000, the Alliance retooling has reduced the crew requirements by more than two-thirds. Removing tons of superstructure has increased engine capacity while lowered fuel consumption. The addition of two rear solar fins has made the assault frigates faster and more maneuverable. The frigates usually carry about 100 troops or 7,500 metric tons of cargo. They each carry a modified assault shuttle piggyback atop their superstructure, while twenty umbilical docking tubes can be used for light freighters and starfighters. The ships are armed with fifteen regularand twenty quad laser cannons along with fifteen turbo laser batteries.
