|Grievous's Recusant-class light destroyer|
|Present for battles/events|
The Recusant-class light destroyer surpassed the Republic's Venator-class Star Destroyer in length and could easily outmatch its firepower with some assistance from Munificent-class star frigates. It had several large cannons positioned near the bridge section, which was itself based on the Munificent-class' bridge tower. There was also heavy turbolaser on the prow. It could carry a C-9979 landing craft on its ventral surface and, unlike regular Recusants, was equipped with hangars.
The vessel was used to board Eeth Koth's flagship and kidnap the Jedi Master, setting a trap for the Republic task force sent to save him and in turn kidnap Grievous. It was later severely damaged and left to drift after capturing a Arquitens-class light cruiser and targeting it at point blank range.
