Kuat Drive Yards (KDY) was a starships manufacturer based on the planet Kuat. It produced many of the galaxies most terrifying symbols of Imperial might, including the Imperial-class Star Destroyer, and also produced walkers such as the All Terrain Defense Pod.[7] It had several subsidiaries, with Kuat Vehicles focusing on civilian ground products,[8] and Kuat Systems Engineering producing starfighters.[9]

HistoryEdit

One of the foremost military shipbuilding corporations in the galaxy, Kuat Drive Yards would produce a variety of arms and military-grade hardware for use by a variety of factions throughout the galaxy, such as the Galactic Republic. With the aid of its subsidiary, Rothana Heavy Engineering, KDY would produce most if not all of the Republic's military starships and vehicles throughout the Clone Wars. Notable starships including the Acclamator-class assault ship, LAAT/i gunships and the formidable land-based AT-TE walker were all produced by KDY, installing it as one of the most influential companies in the galaxy.[1]

It was only natural for KDY to shift its allegiance following the proclamation of the New Order, and the Republic's transformation into the autocracy that was the Galactic Empire. As a result of its importance in Republic military production, it quickly became the premier starship and vehicle manufacturer for the Imperial Navy and Imperial Army respectively, reaping huge profits as a result. The collusion of industrial and military power led to the distinct, dagger-shaped vessels utilized the Imperial armed forces, with the company producing the most prominent symbols of Imperial might. The Imperial-class Star Destroyer and AT-AT walker were all products of KDY's massive military infrastructure.[1] The Admiralty would push for KDY's larger vessels, much to the chagrin of the Imperial Starfighter Corps.[10]
