The CR-92 battle corvette is the product of years of dedicated research and design and is widely considered to be one of the finest examples of Corellian engineering in the galaxy. Based on the CR-90 platform, the CR-92 was designed to fill a combat role with capabilities exceeding even the advanced CR-90 Assassin-class corvette.
Hibridium is bonded to the CR-92's hull to shield it from invasive scans and passive sensors. Its stealth, combined with the strongest sensor package found amongst Corvette-class starships, allows the CR-92 to scan for potential threats long before being detected.
The hull strength of the CR-92 was improved by 75% in comparison to the CR-90 platform, while the shield strength more than doubled. Advanced engines give the battle corvette a vastly increased hyperspeed rating and upgraded sublight capability, ensuring it retains its legacy as a Corellian blockade runner along with allowing greater flexibility during combat maneuvers. Boasting a heavy armament of turbolasers and heavy lasers, the CR-92 is one of the best armed Corvette-class starships in the galaxy.
One of the major drawbacks to the improvements found in the CR-92 design were greatly increased production requirements. Many of these demanding specifications, such as the extremely steep cost of manufacturing, took a toll on overall demand, limiting production numbers before eventually leading to the discontinuation of the CR-92 due to a galactic lack of interest.
