Twice the size of Interdictor-Class Warships, the Centurion-Class Battlecruiser is the heavyweight of Revan's Fleet, first fighting for the Republic, then against it. Intended to phase out the problematic Inexpugnable-Class Tactical Command Vessels, a limited number of these 1,200-meter-long Starships see action in the Mandalorian Wars. Several of the ships are crushed beyond recognition by the Mass Shadow Generator in the Battle of Malachor V. The rest wind up serving as prestigious, colossal mobile fortresses for the Sith Empire.
The Centurion-Class Battlecruiser is a powerful ship that presents an intimidating visage to it's opponents. Built in the same wedge-shaped design that would later become popular among Star Destroyers in the Galactic Civil War, a single Centurion-Class Battlecruiser packs enough firepower to take on an Inexpugnable-Class Tactical Command Vessel and is purely a weapon of war.
Most Centurion-Class Battlecruisers are destroyed or captured by the end of the Jedi Civil War. However, during the Dark Wars, the Sith Lord Darth Nihilus manages to resurrect one of the crushed battlecruisers from Malachor V, turning the wreck of The Ravager into a spaceworthy ghost ship.
