The Raider-class corvette was a corvette model in service with the starfleet of the Galactic Empire. One Raider-class, the Corvus, was used by the elite Inferno Squad.

HistoryEdit

Two Raider-class corvettes were part of an Imperial task force ordered to eliminate insurgents in the Umbara system lead by Admiral Carlou Gendling. Gendling's inability to act decisively resulted in the destruction of one corvette and critical damage to the other corvette. Some years later, at least one Raider-class corvette was in the 103rd Task Force under the command of Admiral Durril during his assault on Batonn. Admiral Durril's ineffectiveness forced him and his task force to retreat, and Admiral Thrawn and the 96th Task Force was dispatched to finish the battle.[1]

Shortly after the Battle of Yavin, one Raider-class corvette, the Corvus, was utilized by the elite Inferno Squad, led by Captain Iden Versio[2] and by the time of the Battle of Endor, it was still used by the squad.[3]
