Rothana Heavy Engineering was a subsidiary of Kuat Drive Yards, in operation prior to and during the Clone Wars. Its headquarters was located on the eponymous planet of Rothana. Rothana received a subcontract with the cloners on Kamino to create war machines for the Galactic Republic's clone troopers and army.
Smaller Rothana warship models were noted for their characteristic "arrow"-shaped command towers. As the Clone Wars progressed, the shipyards quickly supplemented its successful assault ships with larger and more advanced designs such as destroyers and battleships.
After the Clone Wars ended, Rothana would still design and produce weaponry and vehicles for the Galactic Empire, but would not be as prominent as they were before. Still, even during the Galactic Civil War, certain designs would still be influenced by their style.
