The YZ-775 freighter was a freighter in the YZ series of ships produced by the Corellian Engineering Corporation.

Contents

Characteristics

The cockpit was an over-sized variant of the standard conical CEC cockpit, capable of seating all 8 crew members. Aft of the cockpit the ship had a two-deck layout, split between the cargo hold and crew quarters.

The YZ-775 was armed with a double turbolaser turret, two double laser cannon turrets, and two proton torpedo tubes. This layout was deemed excessive for a non-combatant transport by Imperial agencies, a claim CEC denied as it had properly gained authorization for such a layout from the Imperial Bureau of Shipyards and Construction.

History

It was first produced shortly after the end of the Clone Wars. The 52-meter-long vessel was one of the largest to be classified as a "light freighter", and could carry 400 metric tons of cargo. Its design bore some resemblance to the CR90 corvette and Corellian gunship series.

The series was popular with smugglers and was favored by high-ranking Imperial Security Bureau agents. Many also found their way into the forces of the Rebellion, and later served in the New Republic.
