Background: The Defender-class assault carrier was a starfighter carrier first deployed by the New Republic shortly before the Black Fleet Crisis. These ships served as starfighter platforms, and were very lightly armed. They lacked heavy guns, and were only armed with 20 light anti-starfighter laser cannons for self-defense. The Defender-class assault carrier was equipped with a Class 1 hyperdrive, and had a crew of 4,050 in addition to 20 gunners.

In addition to its starfighters, the Defender-class assault carrier also held assault shuttles and various personnel transports for its 700 troops.
