The Kandosii-type dreadnaught, named after the Mando'a word for "ruthless", was the largest capital ship[2] used by the Mandalorians during the Mandalorian Wars.[3]

CharacteristicsEdit

DimensionsEdit

The Kandosii design had sharp, thin lines and were based on a variety of stolen technologies. A notable flaw in their design was that their hyperspace navigation systems could be crippled by a strategically-placed charge in the rear.[2]

Offensive and defensive systemsEdit

Kandosii-type dreadnaughts were heavily armed for combat, with 30 medium double turbolaser cannons providing the main offensive firepower. They also carried 12 point-defense triple laser cannons placed at certain places as to give full hull coverage. Each dreadnaught also had 12 super-heavy concussion missile launchers that could bombard capital ships,[2] or hold nuclear missiles to bombard planets, as seen at the Battle of Serroco.[3] These missile launchers were located in the ship's bow and the lower protruding superstructure.[3]

Hangar complementEdit

The Kandosii-type had a large cargo hold and could carry up to 128 starfighters for self-defense and offensive strikes. Usually the most common fighter was the Davaab-type starfighter. Each dreadnaught could also carry eight Shaadlar-type troopships with 800 troops each. In addition to these, the Kandosii-type could carry several Basilisk war droids.[2]

HistoryEdit

Originally designed and built by the Fenelar, the Mandalorians stole the Kandosii-type design, during their conquest and destruction of the species. These dreadnaughts were later used by the Mandalorian Neo-Crusaders during the Mandalorian Wars against the Galactic Republic.[2]

A Mandalorian Dreadnaught led a battle group of Jehavey'ir-type assault ships during the Battle of Serroco, where the fleet bombarded the planet's surface with nuclear missiles.[3] Later in the war, a ship of this type lead by Cassus Fett bombarded the surface of Jebble to stop the Rakghoul plague from spreading to other systems.[4]

LegacyEdit

Vigiliance

The Dreadnaught-class heavy cruiser, a Republic design based on the Kandosii-type.

Sometime prior to 100 BBY, Rendili Star Systems adopted a Mandalorian warship design to create the Dreadnaught-class heavy cruiser.[5] The design used in the Mandalorian Wars shared some superficial similarities with the Rendili Dreadnaught design. Additionally, some MandalMotors designs like the Crusader-class corvette, would also borrow the sharp-edged, aggressive look of the then-ancient warships.[6]

Known shipsEdit

Behind the scenesEdit

The reference to the Dreadnaught-class heavy cruisers being based on Mandalorian starships comes from The Dreadnaughts of Rendili; combined with Palpatine's statement later in the comic that the heavy cruisers would be turned into dungeon ships, it was clearly intended to show the development of the Mandalorian Dungeon Ship from Dark Empire. However, the History of the Mandalorians article later made the dungeon ship specifically a separate ship class.

According to Dustin Weaver, he was aware that the Mandalorian Dreadnaught was the basis of the Dreadnaught-class Heavy Cruiser, but deliberately opted for a different appearance, citing changes over the millennia and a more aggressive look. He based the design on the Crusader-class corvette and the Lictor-class dungeon ship. He also stated that they were produced by MandalMotors, but this is not corroborated with the later Campaign Guide.[6]
