Arquitens Class Light Cruiser, Deep Patrol Vessel

The Imperial light cruiser Agrippa

The Imperial light cruiser was a variant of the Arquitens-class light cruiser manufactured by Kuat Drive Yards for the Galactic Empire. It had the same overall shape as its Clone Wars-era predecessor, the Jedi light cruiser: it was a triangular ship with three cylindrical engine units, and a bow that was cleaved into two prongs. Although it might have looked like a simple repaint of the Jedi light cruiser, the Imperial Arquitens had subtle updates in its design, such as an enclosed triangular plating on the engines and the shape of its bridge tower. It was armed with several quad laser turrets, double-barreled turbolaser batteries, and concussion missile launchers. It also housed eight escape pods. A Sentinel-class landing craft, three TIE/LN starfighters or three TIE/IN interceptors could dock with the vessel inside its forward prongs. Changes that were made to the Imperial variant also included the removal of the side-mounted turbolaser batteries, along with the retractable feature of the dorsal and ventral-mounted laser turrets that were present in the Jedi variant
