The Mining Cruiser was a class of mining ship produced by the Templars shortly after the clone wars when they went into full scale mining operations around the Theralis Sector. While the size of a cruiser, it was armed like a light corvette. The additional space was taken up by storage facilities, hanger bays, and crews for the large crew shifts and miners. While not designed for combat the ships forward mining laser could be used as an effective anti capital ship weapon while the mining ships retreated. For defense they carried 12 Vindicator-class Starfighters.

Mining Cruiser Weapon Pods

The Two Weapons pod

Despite being a mining vessel and not being built for combat the ship was fitted with weapons systems to defend itself and the rest of the Mining Initiative Fleet. One of these weapons systems was modular, fitted on the front of the ship to either side of the mining laser. The two weapon systems that could be mounted were either NOVA Missile launchers, armed with 10 missiles set to low yields standard. The Other optional weapons system were two very powerful Composite-beam lasers with power equal to a light turbolaser but able to sustain fire for a much longer time. The beam lasers were the usual choice as they could also act as mining lasers.
