The Heavy Munitions Cruiser was a capital ship class used by the Trade Federation.[1]

Contents

Characteristics

Although built as dedicated warships for the corporation's Trade Defense arm, they were much smaller and less powerful than the LH-3210 cargo haulers which the Trade Federation converted into battleships for their attack on Naboo and during the Clone Wars.[1]

Like many of the Trade Federation's ships, a heavy munitions cruiser depended heavily on automated systems.[1]

History

Perhaps the best-known vessel of this class, Admiral Korvin, was used by Raith Sienar for his mission to Zonama Sekot in 29 BBY, equipped with 3,000 B1 battle droids, a force of at least 30 Vulture droid starfighters, 3 C-9979 landing craft, and a contingent of heavily-armored E-5 battle droids, a new model developed after the Battle of Naboo.[1]

Nevertheless, Admiral Korvin also carried a hundred Human troops, and a two-seater Spy ship which required a living pilot.[1]
