The Pelta-class frigate was a large, highly modular frigate used by the Republic during the Clone Wars. The ship served support roles as both a cargo hauler and medical frigate.
The frigate was known to be very modular, with systems and interiors that could be changed within hours. While outfitted with turbolasers and cannons, the Pelta frigate usually did not carry any weapons while on medical missions. They instead relied on thick armor plating and shields for protection, in addition to other warships.
