Characteristics

Light cruiser Falaricae seen from behind.

The MC40 was a small Rebel capital ship, larger than the Imperial Strike-class medium cruiser. It was equipped with powerful shields for a vessel of its size. Its three engines gave it a higher speed than the bigger MC80a Star Cruiser, and it was more maneuverable. The MC40 had a large, portside hangar and could carry one starfighter squadron.[1]

History

The Margaret launching her fighters.

The MC40 light cruiser was constructed some time prior to the Battle of Hoth.[1] It saw heavy use in the year leading up to the Battle of Endor.[2]

Ships of this kind accompanied larger vessels like the MC80 Star Cruiser.[2]

Behind the scenes

The MC40 made no appearances outside of games. Interestingly, in Star Wars: TIE Fighter, the standard MC80 Mon Calamari Star Cruiser does not feature in any storyline missions, showing up in just two combat simulation missions. It is possible that the MC80 did not feature much, perhaps due to balancing issues.

Appearances

  • Star Wars: TIE Fighter (First appearance)
  • Star Wars: X-wing vs. TIE Fighter
  • Star Wars: X-wing Alliance
  • Balance Point (Possible appearance)
