Background and History
One of the designs that would eventually lead to the successful YT-1300, the 1210 is another fine example of Corellian engineering. Powered by the same CEC NovaQuad-D system propulsion system experimented with in the earlier Barloz-class models, the YT-1210 is of a lighter design and thus significantly faster than its predecessor.
Though its sublight engines are not entirely as effective as on the 1300 series, the model is equipped with an extensive sensor package rare for this kind of civillian ship. The 1210 series is still very much a freighter, with minimal armament and an enormous cargohold, even for a ship of this size. With such minimal armament however, the 1210 proved susceptible to pirate attacks, which lead to the decision that the sensors and cargo space would be reduced to make room for extra weapons and more sublight speed in the YT-1300.
