Fireships (or fire ships) were vessels utilized by the Galactic Republic during the Clone Wars for fire suppression. Several fireships attempted to put out the flaming wreck of the Invisible Hand as it crash-landed on Coruscant at the conclusion of the Battle of Coruscant.
Behind the scenesEdit
Fireships first appeared in Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith. The vessels are mentioned in Ultimate Star Wars, which uses formats the name as both "fireship" and "fire ship". This article favors the former formatting, which appears in the main text of the book's "Battle of Coruscant" section, rather than the latter, used in an image caption.
