History

The Cargo class freighter is pretty much what it says it is. It is about the size of a light cruiser or destroyer and used for mid-sized cargo loads. It’s most unique feature is the massive front cargo bay hatch which allows direct loading and unloading by small craft.

Some of these would be converted into pocket Carriers capable of holding a dozen large fighters or even small shuttles in their retrofitted cargo bay. These would have all the normal repair and maintenance facilities to keep their small craft in service as well as house the fighter pilots and maintenance crews. However they were unarmed and needed to stay out of direct combat at all costs.
