None standard, can be refitted with various configurations
Varies, based on modular configuration
900 metric tons
The Republic shuttle was more spacious and could carry more people compared to the Consular-class space cruiser. It also featured a large meeting room. Because they were diplomatic vessels, Republic shuttles lacked weapons but boasted a powerful deflector shield.
The class was manufactured by the famous Corellian Engineering Corporation, which manufactured most of the vessels in use by the Galactic Republic. They were less versatile than most CEC designs, in part due to their extensive armor plating.
Star Shuttles served the Republic in its last decades as diplomatic vessels, but some ships were modified for military service and were equipped with at least two turbolasers. They served in the Judicial Forces and fought in the Stark Hyperspace War, the Yinchorri Uprising, and the Clone Wars. The Corellian Star Shuttle Perpetuus transported Chancellor Palpatine to Theed following the Second Battle of Theed.
