Carrack Light Cruiser

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

It was later an important addition to the Imperial Navy; although 350 meters long, the small combat cruisers were heavily armed and had a top speed that matched X-wing starfighters.

The Carrack-class was made as a cheap replacement for expensive capital ships and was not designed to operate as ships of the line, despite being capable of trading fire with larger adversaries.
