Description: The Pelta-class frigate was a highly modular capital ship used by Galactic Republic personnel as both a medical frigate and cargo frigate during the Clone Wars.

The medical variant of the Pelta-class frigate was painted with the characteristic red markings of the Republic Navy. In appearance, the class bore similarities in design to CEC's CR90 corvettes and DP20 frigates, and had a command tower similar to Consular-class cruisers. Medical frigates of this type were equipped with at least 4 escape pods.

In order to maneuver more smoothly through space, the frigate was capable of opening up a set of wings to expose smaller auxiliary engines. The wings were usually folded up to minimize the ship's profile. The interiors could easily be switched out to conform to different mission assignments in a matter of hours.
The frigates had heavy armor, as well 2 light turbolaser batteries, 3 point-defense laser cannon batteries and 3 tractor beam batteries to defend themselves with. The cargo variant sported gray hull plating, contained a large interior for transporting supplies and, unlike the medical frigate, was armed. An example of this frigate was TB-73.

The Pelta-class was often used in conjunction with MedStar-class frigates, leading to them often being called "medical frigates" despite the modular design.

Republic medical frigates in the vicinity of Naboo were often directed to the Kaliida Shoals Medical Center, which could support tens of thousands of patients. They became easy targets during the Malevolence's numerous strikes.
Some Pelta-class frigates were still used by the Galactic Empire during the Galactic Civil War.

Nice. KDY with Corellian design elements. Crew for the weapons???

I guess that's what the rest of the 800 crew are doing? As in the episode it clearly only has 2 pilots on the bridge, and taking them over took control of the vessel. So while the ship needs engineers, etc to run it, I'm not sure why it has a crew so massive when 2 people actually fly it.

It's possible the 800 are the medical staff when it's being used as a medical ship, but otherwise I'm not sure.

Speaking of ship and crew sizes, ever notice how relatively small ship have thousands of crew, and you wonder how they fit in the ship? Even for lack of automation? Dreadnought, great example. Even Imperial Star Destroyers make me wonder how they fit thousands of crew sometimes, due to realizing how much internal space is taken up by the docking bay, extra ships and TIE fighters, storage bays for those when not in use, flight deck for when they are, other storage bays for everything the ship uses but isn't people, all the places they store AT-ATs and AT-STs and other ground vehicles, the space for the Stormtroopers (who are passengers, not crew), and last but not least the engines and power core. Those cutaway pics they made show a lot of this, and made me wonder for a long time on such things.

Going by Wookieepedia

Crew 900
Passengers 300
Cargo capacity 275 tons

Based on the official Clone Wars Campaign Guide for WotC Star Wars RPG.

Whoops, guess I copied 900 wrong into 800 (must have been drunk).
