The Grand Army of the Republic
RAS Iron Star
A Pelta-class frigate outfitted for extended survey missions.
Kuat Drive Yards’ Pelta-class frigates are the newest vessels in the Republic Fleet. Their design allows them to alter shape to fit a number of roles, the most common of which are cargo freighter and medical transport.
Pelta-class frigates have a long, narrow shape. Two large auxiliary “wings” can fold inward to present a smaller profile at the expense of interior space. When folded out, the wings reveal banks of auxiliary engines that provide additional speed and maneuverability.
This particular frigate, the Iron Star, is fitted with carbon-durasteel armor. It’s internal modules are suitable for its role as a planetary explorer. These include laboratories and sample lockers. The frigate also carries a hanger module large enough for several shuttles and starfighters.
