These transports were deployed during the Battle of Murkhana in the closing hours of the war. During the Great Jedi Purge that followed, ten Jedi survivors managed to steal a transport of this type from Dellalt. They were pursued by an Imperial light cruiser and a number of ARC-170 starfighter/bombers, before being rescued by the Drunk Dancer.
Behind the scenesEdit
It is unclear, in Dark Lord, whether L-200 is part of the full designation of the SX troop shuttle, or a separate but similar class of vessel. Cudgel identifies a disguised SX, the Vagabond Trader, as an L-200, so either the SX was intentionally disguised as an L-200 and the disguise fooled Cudgel, or Cudgel recognizes the ship for what it really is and either L-200 is synonymous with SX, or he simply pretends to think it is an L-200. It may be that the author had forgottten referring to it as an SX earlier in the novel.
