    History

    Arrived to protect the mobile weapon factory discovered by Republic Shield forces led by the Calamari Cruiser McGrath on the edge of the Anshife system. Led Imperial forces in defence of the factory, and attempted to prevent the transport group Katarn from boarding the mobile factory. Imperial reinforcements led by the Frigate Triumphant renewed Imperial efforts to prevent the capture of the factory, but Republic Shield forces held the Imperial attackers at bay long enough for the transports to board and capture the factory, and then escape into hyperspace. The Calamari Cruiser Valour finally arrived to reinforce Republic Shield forces, and completely secure the area, destroying the remaining Imperial presence in the combat zone. Destroyed by Republic Shield forces. (PBF511)

    Behind the Scenes

    This ship was originally named the Protector; however this name was already used by the Victory-class Star Destroyer flagship of Admiral Harkov, which was destroyed by Imperial forces after defecting to the Rebel Alliance. Retroactively renamed by the Logistics Office.
