―The captain of a Keldabe battleship

The Keldabe-class battleship was one of several different warship classes utilized by Tyber Zann's faction and others in the Galactic Civil War. At least one vessel of this class was employed by the Mandalorians during the Galactic Civil War.

Contents

Characteristics

Like the Crusader-class corvette, it was a Mandal Hypernautics design. It was named after Mandalore's capital, Keldabe.

Ships of the class were able to compete with the Galactic Empire's Imperial-class Star Destroyers. Keldabes were armed with turbolasers, ion cannons, and a special mass driver weapon capable of firing directly through enemy shields. The mass drivers were located in between the two engine systems and at the front of the ship.

An interesting facet of the ship's design was that they were capable of actually leeching energy from enemy vessels and shields to power its own weapon systems. Whether this was a product of the ship's original construction or whether Tyber Zann added his own modifications in is unknown.

Overall, they were approximately a third more powerful than the Consortium's Aggressor-class destroyers, but this also led them to be much more expensive.

History

The Consortium obtained the Keldabe-class after its pirates extorted plans from MandalMotors. Zann, although annoyed by the pirate's disobeying of his orders to leave the shipyards alone, nonetheless added the Keldabe-class to his fleet, after executing the offending pirate. Keldabes were used in many Consortium operations, such as the Second Battle of Kuat.

The Keldabe-class Battleship was a warship in the Zann Consortium's fleet. Like many Mandalorian designs, it emphasized firepower over defensive systems and a starfighter compliment. Boasting over a hundred weapons emplacements, it had the firepower to engage and destroy Galactic Empire Imperial I-class Star Destroyers and Rebel Alliance MC80 Star Cruisers. With three heavy shield-penetrating mass driver cannons and ten concussion missile launchers, it could rip holes in the most heavily armored enemy warships.

The Keldabe classification also sacrificed deflector shielding for velocity and manueverability, allowing it to outrun enemy Imperial-class Star Destroyers.

Its designation as a "battleship", a sluggish, yet highly powerful and armored warship, was deliberately placed to confuse enemies and to hide its considerable engine handling characteristics.

Analysis

Positive Characteristics

  • Heavy weaponry (mass driver cannons & concussion missile launchers)
  • Velocity & manueverability

Negative Characteristics

  • Weak deflector shielding
  • Weak starfighter compliment
