Carriers served alongside Republic warships. This distinction between the types seemed to emphasise the carrier-duty over the warship-duty. In contrast, the Venator-class Star Destroyer, a contemporary design, served in both capacities, but was emphasised as being a "warship".
The V-wing starfighter was known to be carried onboard these ships, and were often released in swarms during combat. At the Battle of Coruscant in 19 BBY, KDY carriers formed part of the Republic's fleet.
Behind the scenesEdit
Although the CR20 troop carrier is sometimes referred to as a Republic carrier, it is too small to support "swarms" of V-wing fighters and therefore, the carriers mentioned here are of a different and larger design.
