The legendary Tears of Taris, was a modified dreadnaught built, in part, from the remains of a Centurion-class battle cruiser from the time of Darth Malak. The Centurion was part of the fleet that bombarded the Republic world of Taris over three hundred years ago and it had changed hands many times over the centuries that followed, but it always served the Sith in one form or another. When Darth Charnus became aware of the Centurion, he ordered it disassembled and its key elements integrated into his new dreadnought, as an act to honor the vessel that had survived for so long. The dreadnought was a formidable ship and it was designed to both besiege planets and deploy troops. The Tears of Taris would play an important role in the Imperial invasion of Corellia during the Galactic War.
