Background and History
It was shaped like a thin, cylinder highlighted by a bulbous front cargo section and a small, rear engine pod. Although marginally faster than the comparable Mobquet medium transport, it was less durable in combat.
Ships of this class measured 164.8 meters in length, could carry 5,000 metric tons of cargo and up to 12 passengers. The cargo space was versatile, and at least one Xiytiar-class transport, the Sungrass, was used as a pocket carrier during a covert New Republic operation. Despite this versatility, and their ability to be manned by as few as two people, they were considered among the least elegant of all starships by many pilots.
