The Nebulon-C escort frigate was a type of frigate used by the New Republic and later by the Resistance during the First Order–Resistance war. It was a successor model to the Nebulon-B escort frigate.


The Nebulon-C was a class of frigates built by Kuat Drive Yards.[1] In terms of armament, it possessed numerous heavy turbolasers, point-defense laser cannons, tractor beam projectors,[2] and at least 2 proton torpedo launchers. The command bridge could be ejected in a case of emergency.[1]

Similar to its predecessor model's use by the rebellion, the Nebulon-C could be refitted to serve as a medical frigate, with one such frigate being used by the Resistance.[3]


The frigates were originally built for the New Republic,[1] however, in light of the mass demilitarization undertaken by the Senate, many Republic vessels, such as the Anodyne, were decommissioned as salvage as of 34 ABY.[2]

The Anodyne instead landed in the hands of the Resistance paramilitary group, where it was reconfigured to serve as a hospital ship. It was destroyed when it ran out of fuel and fell into range of the pursuing Supremacy.[3]
