Republic Reliant Fleet Carrier

The Republic's Reliant-class fleet carrier was a short-lived venture by the
Republic Navy to create a vessel capable of carrying enough starfighters
(both active and reserve) to allow a fleet to maintain deep space operation
for an extended period of time without having to constantly ferry out
replacement fighters for those lost in combat.

Physically, it is only slightly shorter than the famed Victory Star Destroyer
which saw its debute during the Clone Wars, the Reliant fleet carrier
featured many of the same design aspects including a command tower almost
identical to that which would later appear on the Victory. While not wedge-
shaped like the Victory, the Reliant is box-shaped with the bow of the vessel
being rounded off in a similar fashion to that of the older Dreadnaught heavy
cruisers.

The design is almost identical to that of the Reliant troopship. Rendili
simply took the troopship design and converted the hangars to be more
suited for starfighters than dropships. In doing so, the vehicle storage
areas originally meant for repulsortanks and speeders were converted to
store replacement starfighters - up to six full squadrons worth. In the
main hangar bay stands ready four full squadrons of operational fighters
for use in combat. In a dire emergency, every starfighter on board can
be launched but bringing the reserve fighters out of storage is something
that can be very time consuming, taking several hours to bring down all
six squadrons.

The construction of Reliants was halted when the Galactic Republic turned
into the Galactic Empire but those Reliant fleet carriers already in service
remained in service of the Imperial Navy for several years before being
replaced by KDY's escort carrier.
