Escort Carrier
Designed and built by Kuat Drive Yards, the escort carrier allowed the Imperial Navy to overcome the hyperdrive deficiency of its primary starfighters in the early years of the Galactic Civil War. With limited weaponry and moderate defenses, escort carrier commanders would generally stay to the rear of a battle area and allow its wing of TIE starfighters to engage the enemy.

It was also common for escort carriers to perform mini-hyperdrive jumps within a system, dropping off a squadron of starfighters with each exit. This tactic made it difficult for Rebel Alliance or pirate pilots to predict where the next attack would come from.
