Corellian CC-5500 Frigate

The Corellian CC-5500 frigate was designed as a cheaper alternative to the extremely
popular Kuati Nebulon B frigates. While it lacked the firepower and tractor beam
projectors of the Nebulon B, the CC-5500 was much more affordable and far easier to
maintain.

Like almost every other starship ever designed and manufactured by Corellian Engineering
Corporation, the CC-5500 was also very easily modified which made it popular among
planetary defense fleets and private corporations, as each ship could be modified
according to the needs of the owners and the specific mission roles it would fill.

In its stock form, the CC-5500 was a deadly and swift anti-starfighter platform, armed
with fourteen powerful quad laser cannon turrets. For ship-to-ship confrontations, the
CC-5500 was equipped with four moderately powered turbolaser cannons which were mainly
intended to be used against smaller vessels such as gunships or bulk transports.

The CC-5500 made its first appearance just shortly after the Nebulon B frigate hit
the market. With a price tag approximately half of the Nebulon B, Corellian saw
decent sales of the model, but the overall firepower of the Nebulon B made it the
more popular of the two.

The Empire fielded a good number of these vessels in their stock form as escorts for
low risk convoys. The Alliance, which happily took quite a few CC-5500s off of the
Empire's hands, was known to extensively modify the vessels into commerce raiding
platforms - sometimes pitting one CC-5500 against another.

The CC-5500 never saw extensive use during the Rebellion or post Rebellion years. As
the New Republic developed, many ships were taken out of service to make room for newly
designed vessels which would serve with distinction during the Black Fleet Crisis and
the Vong invasion. A few were kept in service in the outer rim, others converted into
customs vessels, but the bulk of the New Republic's CC-5500s were sold off of the
Corporate Sector Authority.
