Basically an extensively rebuilt Corellian Engineering Corporation Action VI transport, the Interceptor frigate was armed with six turbolasers and a group of three proton torpedo tubes facing forward. They had shielding roughly equivalent to the much larger EF76 Nebulon-B escort frigate and could achieve similar acceleration.
Though they were used by a large number of pirate groups, most Interceptor frigates bore Black Sun emblems, and some were occasionally purchased by the Alliance Fleet and Imperial Navy. Tyber Zann had a large amount of these ships modified to be faster and less armored to become Interceptor IV frigates.
