MC40a light cruiser
The MC40 was a small Rebel capital ship, larger than the Imperial Strike-class medium cruiser. It was equipped with powerful shields for a vessel of its size. Its three engines gave it a higher speed than the bigger MC80a Star Cruiser, and it was more maneuverable. The MC40 had a large, portside hangar and could carry one starfighter squadron.
Behind the scenesEdit
Interestingly, in Star Wars: TIE Fighter, the standard MC80 Mon Calamari Star Cruiser does not feature in any storyline missions, showing up in just two combat simulation missions. It is possible that the MC80 did not feature much because of balancing or performance issues.
- Star Wars: TIE Fighter (First appearance)
- Star Wars: X-wing vs. TIE Fighter
