The Carrack is not estensively used in the New Republic, it has seen much action during the Clone Wars and the era of the Galacitc Empire. With the speed of a T-65 B X-Wing the Carrack is a swift vessel and is still revered as an excellent ship. Though old it can cause trouble for cruisers and ships of larger size. Its 20 ion Cannons can be replaced with 20 Laser Cannons making it an effective vessel against starfighters. The Empire has placed external racks to hold up to four recon TIE Fighters. As they grow older they are constantly being shifted to Outer Rim systems to defend against pirates.
