The workhorse of the Republic fleet, the Thranta-class corvette is a light warship that has seen decades of iteration and refinement. Swift, formidable in combat and possessed of an impressive crew and cargo capacity, the Thranta's flexibility has ensured its continuing use. The corvette does have its drawbacks, however, lacking the firepower to go toe-to-toe with Imperial dreadnoughts or penetrate planetary defenses.
The Thranta was designed and is manufactured by Corellia StarDrive, but its inspiration can be found in Republic warship designs going back centuries. Discussions of a revamped successor model frequently arise, but no prototype has been publicly revealed.
