Reference Book: Star Wars Saga Edition Legacy Era Campaign Guide
One of the largest Space Transports available on the open market, the Corellian Engineering Corporation's YZ-2500 Space Transport could arguably be classified as a Capital Ship based on its size and armaments. Corporate advocates from Corellia manage to overcome the Empire's severe ship regulations by convincing the Imperial bureaucracy that the new YZ-2500 Space Transport can help stabilize trade lanes plagued by pirates. The Empire agrees to allow production of the YZ-2500 Transport, though it remains questionable how much the ship actually contributes to the stability of the trade lanes.
The YZ-2500 Transport can haul nearly 500 times as much cargo as normal Space Transports. Large enough to support capital-scale weaponry, the YZ-2500 is typically used by corporations looking to transport large quantities of goods without having to rely on an entire convoy of smaller vessels. However, many of these ships have fallen into the hands of The Galactic Alliance, where they serve a greater purpose. Since these ships are commonly sold to corporate interests, The Galactic Alliance is able to use these ships to move personnel and supplies throughout the galaxy on legitimate shipping lanes without raising too many red flags with Imperial Customs. Since they are also well armed, these ships also make good support vessels during hit-and-run missions.
Many of these ships have also fallen into the hands of crime lords and smuggling barons. Too costly (Both to purchase and maintain) for the average tramp freighter captain, YZ-2500 Transports are the mainstays of many criminal fleets.
