The Assault Corvette was a short lived joint project by Corellian Engineering
Corporation and Wereling Spaceworks in an attempt to design an effective
convoy escort craft. The final designs produced a bulky ship with the infamous
'hammerhead' bridge at the front of the ship which is the main distinquishing
feature on the older Corellian Corvettes.
A pair of prototypes was produced, one by Corellian Engineering Corporation
and another by Wereling Spaceworks. CEC was quick to dismiss the craft as
slow, bulky, and cumbersome, not at all living up to their reputation and
pulled out of the project seeing it as a waste of money and time. Wereling,
however, found the Assault Corvette to be just what they wanted.
Wereling soon built several more of the ships and deployed them to convoy
escort duty and soon found that its bulky size and large turbolaser turrets
often alone scared off pirate raids.
Not long after adequately deploying the ships to protect its vital supply
convoys, Wereling began selling the ship on the open market only to find its
high price tag often made customers turn to the old, yet reliable, Corellian
