The Spinward-class tender was a mobile repair ship used by the Galactic Federation of Free Alliances nearly 100 years after the Yuuzhan Vong War. As large as bulk freighters, these tenders performed major repairs on damaged Alliance warships.
The Spinward-class tender was designed to perform deep space repairs for large capital ships and transports. Using massive ship-mounted robotic arms and onboard tractor beams, the Spinward could latch on to a damaged starship and immediately begin repairs. The ship carried zero-g repair crews equipped with EVA suits or repair pods, various types of astromech droids or repair droids, and standard technicians. Each Spinward carried numerous repair materials, including spare parts and hull plating. While not as effective as a shipyard or spacedock, the Spinward was critical for organizations that lack the necessary infrastructure, like the Galactic Alliance Remnant.
