Description: The Braha'tok-class gunship, known frequently as the Dornean gunship, was a model of gunship built by the Dornean Braha'ket Fleetworks Conglomerate. Armed considerably with turbolasers and concussion missile launchers, it could carry two starfighters to its underbelly. Braha'tok-class gunships were initially built to protect Dornea from the Empire, but many of them eventually saw service with the Alliance to Restore the Republic, especially during the Galactic Civil War. They was notably seen in battles such as the Battle of Atollon and the Battle of Endor.
The Braha'tok-class gunship also called the Dornean gunship for its use at Dornea. It was a type of gunship built at 90 meters long with a silver-plated hull to deflect solar radiation. Hazram Namir described it as a mean, compact, dagger of a ship. The Dornean gunship could reach speeds of 800 kilometers per hour and had a class 1 hyperdrive located in the rear of the vessel, between its two sublight engines. Its command bridge was situated in the ship's bow. The Dornean gunship was also equipped with a navigation computer and a long sensor array.
Dornean gunships were powerful for their size, bearing an armament of eight concussion missile launchers and eight double turbolaser cannons. Two double turbolaser cannons were seen above and below the ships bow, with a dorsal and a ventral turret also found towards the center of the ship. Two side turrets were seen at the middle of the ship as well. As well as weaponry, the Dornean gunship could bear a complement of two starfighters, that were attached to the gunships undercarriage. A Dornean gunship could carry a crew of 75 personnel and 15 passengers with them. The gunships cargo capacity stood at 300 and had enough consumables for its average crew to last eight standard months.
The Braha'tok-class gunship was originally designed for fast attack, bombardment, and anti-starfighter roles. They were initially built for the protection of Dornea from the Galactic Empire, but many became a part of the Alliance to Restore the Republic. In the Alliance Fleet, Braha'tok-class gunships were still used for anti-starfighter roles, but some, like the Apailana's Promise, became escorts to larger capital ships like CR90 corvettes. The Apailana's Promise also took up the role of carrying the two X-wings owned by Twilight Company.
