The Gozanti Cruiser, also known as the Gozanti-class armed transport or Gozanti-class cruiser[7] was a slow but powerful independent transport used by merchants, militaries and mercenaries throughout the galaxy to defend cargo vessels from piracy.

Well-armored, these vessels were notoriously difficult to board, much to the consternation of many a space pirate. They were equipped with twin engines at the rear and a belly-mounted sensor array. The ships were purposely designed to protect ships from pirates, and came equipped with a battery of four laser cannons, a battery of two quad laser cannons, and a single proton torpedo launcher (fired by the pilot). Atmospheric speed was 400 km/h.[1]

To satisfy regulations that these ships could not be used by pirates, the ship had slow sublight speed making it useless for raids. Though the ship was used by many organizations, including Hutts and a number of crime lords, it was never used in a direct act of piracy.[1]

The cruisers could carry twelve passengers and the crew consisted of a pilot, co-pilot, communications/sensor operator, two loadmasters, and six gunners.[3]


The Krayt's Honor was a well-known Gozanti Cruiser noted for its use by freelancers protecting various merchants who were otherwise harassed by the Trade Federation. Years prior to the advent of the Clone Wars, it could be seen in the space port of Mos Espa on Tatooine.[4][2]

During the Clone Wars, the Confederacy of Independent Systems militarized Gozanti cruisers and used them as support ships. These vessels were painted in Separatist colors. Several ships served in the fleet of the super tactical droid Aut-O.[5] The Black Sun criminal syndicate modified Gozantis and used them as frigates.[6] After the takeover of Mandalore by the Shadow Collective, both Separatist and Black Sun Gozantis were seen using the city of Sundari as a stopover point.[8]

By the time of the Galactic Civil War, the cruisers were considered past their usefulness as front-line combatants and most were relegated to cargo runs in the Outer Rim Territories. The Rebel Alliance refurbished several of them for use as escorts. A few were modified to carry one or two starfighters in their cargo bays.[3] It also had some use by the Imperial Security Bureau.

Gozanti cruisers went again into production after the death of Emperor Palpatine due to an increase in demand for armored civilian ships.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Star Wars Insider 63 incorrectly identifies the Gozanti Cruiser and the Taylander shuttle as "Brocklander ships". Star Wars Insider 65 corrects the mistake, stating that "Brocklander" was only a nickname used during production.
