The CR92a Assassin-class corvette, better known as the modified corvette, was a small warship first produced some time before the Battle of Hoth and used primarily by the Imperial Navy.

CharacteristicsEdit

Corvette Comparison

Comparison of the Assassin-class and a CR90 corvette.

Designed as a more militarized successor to the famous CR90 corvette, the Assassin-class shared the familiar "hammerhead" styling, but it was more streamlined for greater hull strength.

In addition to a stronger hull, the Assassin had more resilient shields and heavier firepower.

Though it shared a similar 4-3-4 engine layout, it had eight large outer engines and three small inner engines as opposed to the CR90's eleven nearly identical engines.

HistoryEdit

The Assassin-class was used alongside the CR90 in system patrol squadrons to repel pirates and Rebel attacks on convoys and space stations. It was also used by the Rebels in hit-and-fade operations and by several groups as a transport for high-priority cargo and personnel.

In 0 ABY, Darth Vader requisitioned the Archer piloted by Ensign Nanda to conduct a personal mission of revenge.[3]

The traitorous Imperial Grand Admiral Demetrius Zaarin used Assassin-class corvettes in many of his attacks on loyal Imperial forces. He had at least twenty-five of these corvettes under his command during his treachery.

In 40 ABY, a number of Assassins were used in Daala's Maw Irregular Fleet.

Behind the scenesEdit

Assassin-class corvettes first appeared in the game Star Wars: X-Wing, though the ship was identified in tactical displays and in the ship database as simply "Modified Corvette". Although named and mentioned as such, the actual polygon model used for the mission was of a regular CR90 corvette. The sequels, however, feature a properly original exclusive design. Fandom often refers to the Assassin-class corvette as the CR90a, but Suns of Fortune later identified it as the CR92a.

Additionally, the Archer in Brian Wood's Star Wars comics uses the regular CR90 model.
