DESCRIPTION
The Pelta-class frigate was a versatile model of frigate manufactured by Kuat Drive Yards that had several different configured variants. During the Clone Wars between the Galactic Republic and Separatist Alliance, the frigates were used by the Republic Navy as a critical component of its war effort. The most common combat configuration was the Pelta-class strike frigate, while other configurations served as hospital ships, such as the Pelta-class Medical Frigate, which was used to safely ferry injured clone troopers to medical stations for treatment. Pelta-class Transport Frigates also served as supply ships to deliver armaments, medical supplies, and food rations.

These vessels were vital to Republic operations during the Battle of Ryloth and the Battle of Christophsis, which saw the use of Pelta-class frigates as blockade runners, supply ships, and medcenters. In the latter role, a number of medical frigates participated in the evacuation of the Republic Kaliida Shoals Medical Center, which was targeted by the Separatist heavy cruiser Malevolence, captained by Supreme Commander of the Droid Army General Grievous. In the second year of the Clone Wars, Geonosian brain worms infected the clone troopers of Tango Company aboard the Pelta-class Medical Frigate TB-73. Following the sabotage of the Venator-class Star Destroyer Endurance, a frigate participated in the recovery and rescue efforts. Pelta-class frigates also served in the capacity of supply ships during the mercy mission to Aleen. Jedi Master Kelleran Beq used the Pelta-class frigate Athylia to train Jedi initiates.

During the rule of the Galactic Empire, the nascent Rebel Alliance used Pelta-class frigates as medcenters, with a handful being retrofitted with turbolasers. The Pelta-class vessel Phoenix Home served as the command ship for the rebel Phoenix Cell until it was destroyed by the Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Vader during the Siege of Lothal. Rebels heavily modified Pelta-class frigates into Pelta-class Assault Ships and Pelta-class Command Cruisers. Numerous Pelta-class frigates would go on to serve in the Citizens' Fleet against the Final Order, a Sith empire that contained a vast armada that threatened the galaxy. The frigates participated in the Battle of Exegol, which saw the defeat of the Final Order, and inspired a galactic uprising against the First Order.

LEGALITY
It is restricted to people with military and planetary defense licenses. Due to its typical heavy armament in its various roles, it would be heavily searched if not under proper licensing.

INTENT
Bringing a multi-functioning ship from Canon. I needed to bring it over so that I could make a faction mission pack with a gentech copy of this. It will eventually be used by the Pyke Syndicate.

RESTRICTIONS
As a Capitol Ship, this ship is unable to be used by a single character and must be used by a faction asset, only.
