The VT-49 Decimator was a heavily armed Imperial transport that had gone through many revisions and modifications, making it one of the galaxy's more feared Imperial warships.

HistoryEdit

Vt49

VT-49 multi-angle view.

Decimators were used as either long-range reconnaissance units or picket ships stationed along the perimeter of Imperial fleets. Sometimes Decimators were used to break through enemy forces to deploy raiding parties.

The command of a VT-49 was a point of accomplishment and pride for the middle ranks of the Imperial Navy. It was usually seen as a stepping stone on the path towards command of a capital ship.

In 0 BBY,[2] the mercenary Rianna Saren stole a VT-49 from the Death Star to go to Danuta.[3]

Behind the scenesEdit

The designers of the VT-49 Decimator have stated that the ship was created as an "evil" Imperial version of Millennium Falcon.[4] The sounds of the VT-49 Decimator were created by Lead Audio Designer Todd Davies using the Millennium Falcon as a reference.[5]
