One of the newer ships added to canon by Disney and my personal favorite Star Wars ship ever, the Hammerhead Corvette served as a anti fighter Corvette. It was brought into canon in Star Wars Rebels and was used by Phoenix Squadron. It was most famously used when Admiral Raddus used the "Light maker" to destroy two Imperial Star Destroyers. It is considerably less armed than another ship of equal size, the CR-90 Corvette(tomorrow), only having 2 laser cannons and an interchangeable tail gun. Although it did receive an unknown refit before the Battle of Scariff #hammerheadcorvette#starwarsrebels#rogueone
Day 14: Favorite Rogue One scene. The whole battle of scarif was pretty cool. We finally got to see some rebel soldiers in action. This part was cool though cuz they took out 2 cruisers at once. Comment your favorite part of rogue one!
Hammerhead corvettes were inspired by a starship design that dated back centuries prior to the Age of the Empire. Throughout its existence, at least two different variants of the Hammerhead corvette existed. The one most commonly seen utilized by several different rebel cells as well as by their successor, the Alliance to Restore the Republic, featured its characteristic vertically-elongated bridge, a large ventral cargo bay, three dual laser cannons, and three engine units.
By 0 BBY, the Alliance had either modified its previous Hammerheads or had begun utilizing a slightly different model. This Hammerhead was structurally the same, although it featured the several new additions. These included two extra modules mounted to the port and starboard of the craft, six escape pods in place of the cargo bay, and a fourth sublight drive mounted on top of the primary three, giving it enough power to single-handedly move a disabled Star Destroyer. This was the version used the most during the Battle of Scarif.
Receiving its name thanks to a time-honored design that stretches back centuries, the Hammerhead Corvette is a powerful transport. While not flashy, this starship has a strong body, forceful engines, and heavy weaponry; Princess Leia Organa once delivered a trio of Hammerhead Corvettes to the Phoenix Squadron rebels on Lothal, adding some much-needed craft to the rebel fleet. Which were used during the years of the galactic civil war.
