Transport Freighter Smuggling Vessel
Background and History
Manufactured by Corellian Engineering Corporation, the Barloz-class was a no-frills freighter. It contained many of the innovations that would later make the YT-series such a success, but it was phased out when the YT series was introduced.
A number of these ships were used to transport Tibanna gas to and from the planet Bespin and the Zann Consortium destroyed several of these ships in order to corrupt the planet. The freighter was once one of the most popular vessels to travel the spaceways—the YT-1300 or Ghtroc of its era. In the latter days of the Old Republic, a medium freighter was equivalent to the light freighter of the Imperial era. Long since supplanted by the YT series, modified Barloz freighters continued to compete against its descendants in the Outer Rim Territories. The Barloz was developed roughly three decades before the Corellian Engineering Corporation unveiled the YT-series craft. Several of the "design innovations" touted by CEC pitchmen were in fact introduced aboard the older Barloz. However, CEC's aggressive marketing campaign for the YT-series spelled the end of the venerable Barloz.
