Game Notes: Docking bay can hold 1 small ship, usually a Quarren Gunship or 1 small fighter or airspeeder.

Background: The Mon Calamari Shipyards were a Dac-based manufacturer of numerous space transports and warships. Over four thousand years old by the time of the Galactic Civil War, the shipyards were renowned for their elegant, streamlined ship designs, characterised by bespoke production, unique engineering, and a sculpted, organic hullform. Though originally focused on exploration vessels and luxury liners, Mon Calamari designs emphasised powerful defenses. The FC-79 was one design put into place to serve as an escort Corvette for fleet operations.

The FD-79 LongFin was also known as the Quarren Corvette due to it’s design. The small capital ship could pack a punch with several laser turrets and two medium turbolasers. It is fast for a ship of it’s size and can carry twenty-five hundred tons of cargo. It’s docking bay was designed to allow for a single Quarren Fighter to dock while being able to hold either one small starfighter or airspeeder in it’s internal hanger.

One FD-79 was with the Rebel Fleet after the Battle of Hoth. It was enroute to the icy planet at the time of the Imperial attack and joined the fleet still full of the supplies it was to deliver to the base.
