Mon Calamari MC80A Star Cruiser
Description:
Built initially as massive pleasure craft by Mon Calamari shipyards, the MC80a Star Cruisers received a series of crucial upgrades to allow them to operate against Imperial warships. The addition of the Mon Calamari provided the Rebel Alliance with their first consistent source of large, powerful capital warships.

Rounded and organic in appearance, most MC80a cruisers were oblong cigar-shaped vessels, although some were more flat or triangular in shape, and others featured wings. The surface of the cruisers were dotted in pods and bulges that contained sensor arrays, weapons batteries, and shield generators.

The MC80a Star Cruiser's role as the center of most Rebel Alliance fleet formations often pitted it against larger, more powerful Imperial-class Star Destroyers. While unable to match the Star Destroyers in weaponry, the MC80a cruisers were equipped with triple layered shields, redundant back-up shielding, and double redundancy critical systems. These features, combined with structural improvements, allowed an MC80a to absorb large amounts of damage while other fleet elements either fled or engaged enemy vessels, but required extensive pre- and post-battle maintenance.

Design Notes:
The MC80A was a standardized upgrade from the MC80, and the result was a slightly more powerful cruiser.
