New Republic Titan Corvette

Smaller, faster warships become popular in early days of the New Republic.
Vessels such as the Warrior gunship and the old Corellian corvettes served
a very important role in many combat missions ranging from convoy escort to
picket line formations to direct assaults on larger cruisers.

The New Republic Titan corvette was designed specifically to be used against
larger warships. Boasting twelve powerful concussion missile launchers -
six tubes on either side of the vessel - the Titan could deliver a deadly
broadside blow to even heavy cruisers.

While the Titan was indeed a swift and agile vessel, it did not fair well
in direct combat with other ships of its class. Its main ship-to-ship
armament was a pair of forward-firing turbolaser cannons, forcing it to
acquire a direct line-of-sight in order to make a shot. The concussion
missile launchers on either side of the vessel worked well against larger
and slower vessels but proved inefficient for targetting smaller picket
line warships.

Initial testing of Titan prototypes proved to be extremely successful in
simulated combat against vessels ranging from frigates all the way up to
star destroyers. However, actual combat results after its introduction into
the fleet did not live up to par. A pair of Titans decimated an old Imperial
Strike cruiser using broadside tactics but each took heavy damage from TIE
fighters due to inadequate anti-starfighter weaponry - the only dedicated
anti-starfighter weapon emplacement being a dorsal-mounted quad laser cannon.

While the Titan never proved to be as flexible as the older Corellian corvettes
in combat, it did supplement the New Republic fleet well. Working in conjunction
with Warrior gunships and other fast attack vessels, the Titans eventually
carved a name for themselves. Unfortunately, it was rare to find a Titan
serving any other purpose. They were almost never seen in picket line formations
and almost never assigned for any sort of escort duties. It was truely an
offensive weapon only.

Some years after its initial debute, a handful of Titans began falling into
the hands of pirates and mercenaries who often times changed out the port and
starboard missile launchers for other weapons systems such as laser cannons
and ion cannons.
