We see a lot of ships in The Old Republic, be it in a cut scene or a flashpoint, but there are a lot. My interest in the ships started when I first played KOTOR and the Republic were using their Hammerhead-class cruiser and Darth Malak's fleet, the Interdictor-class cruiser. I first realised a change when I ran through the Black Talon for the first time and noticed a Hammerhead-class cruiser being referred to as a "Thranta-class warship" by one of the Ensigns and not to mention the Black Talon itself being a new ship class. After some research, I found out the Hammerhead-class cruiser was a lot different, but looked exactly the same as the Thranta-class warship apart from one or two features. All of this got me thinking about the Imperial and Republic Navy's and the different ship classes under their command and what each of these ship classes was used for. Here is what I know already;



  • The Republic Thranta-class warship is the new variant of the Hammerhead-class cruiser.
  • The Imperial Harrower-class dreadnought is the huge one you see in a specific Warzone and in certain flashpoints.
  • The Black Talon isn't actually a ship class, but just the ships name (I don't know the Black Talon's ship class)




So, what I would like to know is;



  • Imperial ship classes (with pictures or links)
  • Republic ship classes (with pictures or links)
  • What the different ships are used for
  • Your favourite ship class and why

To be honest, I am only interested in ships from The Old Republic, but you're more than welcome enough to explain why an older ship design might be your favourite. I'm a big fan of the Republic Hammerhead-class cruisers and the Imperial Harrower-class dreadnought. Thank you in advance and I hope there are some SWTOR ship fanatics out there and it isn't just me.

You're right, the Thranta is different from the Hammerhead. The Black Talon is the ship's name. It's a Gage-class transport.

Thank you for the links. This has gave me a great insight into Republic and Imperial ships. I did wonder what those huge Republic ships were called and now I know they're the Valor-class cruisers.
