The Svelte-class Imperial shuttle was designed as a more aggressive replacement for the fractured Empire's aging Lambda-class T-4a shuttle in the years after Palpatine's demise.

CharacteristicsEdit

The Silviut Corporation leveraged its experience as a subcontractor to craft a superior vessel, capable of both long-range transport and space combat support. While inferior to a true starfighter, the Svelte-class shuttle was capably maneuverable and well-armed for a shuttle.

Often dubbed the "Vader-class" shuttle by Imperial pilots, the shuttle's black finish indeed gave it the appearance reminiscent of a space-borne beetle or the famous Sith Lord.
