Gozanti Cruisers were usually slow moving starships, but they compensated for it with their well-armored hull and heavy laser cannon batteries, making them difficult targets for pirates. They were outfitted with a sensor array on the underside and were often used as both escort and transport ships by both the Republic and Separatists, holding at least 12 passengers in its hold.
Senator Padmé Amidala and Jedi Padawan Ahsoka Tano traveled aboard a Gozanti Cruiser from Mandalore to meet with Confederate Senator Mina Bonteri on Raxus in order to discuss opening peace negotiations between the Republic and Separatist Senates. Later in the war, the Separatists used them as cargo vessels in their fleets. Gozanti Cruisers were also used by merchants and mercenaries across the galaxy as personal transports.
