The Liberator Cruiser was a powerful frontline SoroSuub Corporation capital ship used by the Rebel Alliance Fleet during the Galactic Civil War. Although slender and small in size, the cruiser boasted a formidable array of weaponry comprising more than four hundred combined turbolaser and ion cannon batteries, and could carry a complement of six starfighter squadrons and three troop regiments. The Liberator featured cutting-edge armor plating, shielding, and drive unit technology that made it one of the galaxy's most advanced warships.

CharacteristicsEdit

The Liberator Cruiser,[2] manufactured by the[1] Sullustan–run[3] SoroSuub Corporation, was a capital ship that, while diminutive in size,[1] nevertheless proved effectively capable of frontline space combat. The cruiser bristled with offensive firepower,[2] including 240 heavy turbolaser batteries—forty each positioned fore and aft, and eighty each both port and starboard—and 200 ion cannons—forty fore, and eighty along each side of the ship. The Liberator's slender body disguised its capacity to carry up to six starfighter squadrons and three troop regiments. The cruiser was also equipped with a hyperdrive.[1]

Irregularly pentagonal in shape, the Liberator's prow extended in twin slanted mandibles, at the recessed center of which lay two exposed launch bays.[1] While formidable against other enemy capital ships, the Liberator tended to be somewhat vulnerable to attacking starfighters.[2] Still, with[1] excellent shielding,[2] state-of-the-art hull armor, and new drive unit technology, the Liberator Cruiser stood as one of the most advanced warships in the galaxy.[1]

HistoryEdit

The Alliance to Restore the Republic utilized the Liberator Cruiser among its naval forces following the Battle of Yavin during the Galactic Civil War.[1]
