The medical variant of Pelta-class frigate was painted with the characteristic red markings of the Republic Navy. In appearance, the class bore similarities in design to CEC's CR90 corvettes and DP20 frigates, and had a command tower similar to the Consular-class cruisers. Medical frigates of this type were equipped with at least 4 escape pods.
In order to more smoothly maneuver through space, the frigate was capable of opening up a set of wings, to expose smaller auxiliary engines. The wings were usually folded up to minimize the ship's profile. The interiors could easily be switched out to conform to different mission assignments in the matter of hours
The frigates had heavy armor, as well 2 light turbolaser batteries, 3 point-defense laser cannon batteries and 3 tractor beam batteries to defend themselves with. The cargo variant sported gray hull plating, contained a large interior for transporting supplies and unlike the medical frigate was armed. An example of this frigate was TB-73.
Republic medical frigates in the vicinity of Naboo were often directed to the Kaliida Shoals Medical Center, which could support tens of thousands of patients. They became easy targets during the Malevolence's numerous strikes.
