The ship class was shaped like a bird of prey and colored red. An arsenal was located somewhere inside the vessel and it had a protruding bridge. The ship type could attach itself to a target ship and allow pirate boarding parties to enter. The Togorian heavy cruiser was armed with some kind of blaster cannon and used a shielding system that did not hug the hull.
Five pirate heavy cruisers attacked the Hutt-run transport Monument in 45 BBY. Obi-Wan Kenobi, then on his way to Bandomeer for assignment to the Agricultural Corps, and Qui-Gon Jinn, his future master, fought against the raiders.
