The Preventer Cruiser was created special order from an Imperial Moff around
the Battle of Hoth. Supply and free trade convoys in his sector were being
ambushed and raided by Rebels and Pirates constantly. He asked for a ship
resembling a transport ship, capable of dealing with large numbers of enemy
fighters and holding off against light enemy capital ships. The result is the
It's a small and fast ship with three quad turbolasers, allowing it to bloody
the nose of any capital ships who enagge it, and 4 quad cannons to deal with
fighters. The biggest threat the Preventer has though, is the hidden missile
launchers. In it's midsection is a large block. This block splits top and bottom
into a total of 8 bozes which split away from the cruiser and manuver toward
enemy fighters and open up revealing 16 missile tubes. The droid mechanisms
inside each launcher are very skilled and the guidance in each warhead is precise
so that only very skilled pilots can manage to evade being hit by the warhead.
These launchers made the Preventer capabale of wiping out entire wings of enemy
fighters in a matter of moments.
Other Imperials took notice of this craft, and looked toward the problem in
dealing with the Feydrakin Alliance. The Empire soon contracted Verdant to
start producing the ships for them to use against the Feydrakin Alliance's
fighters and Mobile Suits.
This was a big gain for Verdant and ensured financial stability for them.
