The corvette was the workhorse of the Republic Navy, being produced in large numbers to compete with the Hammerhead-class cruiser of the Jedi Civil War and replace the Praetorian-class frigate of the Great Sith War

The Thranta-class corvette possessed two main dual turbolasers mounted in the forward position, like that of the Hammerhead-class, a third dual turbolaser mounted along its ventral hull, and numerous other weapons located along its hull. The armament of this ship's class was powerful enough for it to compete with the Gage-class transport or a Terminus-class destroyer, but it lacked the firepower to go head to head against the Harrower-class Dreadnought

and heavier warships. To compensate for this, they utilized their agility and pack tactics to take down larger vessels.
Thranta-class corvettes possess two shielded hangars on the port and starboard sides of the ship, allowing it to hold 14 Liberator-class Republic starfighters

as well as war droids and transports for reinforcements. The Thranta-class Corvette is powered by a type-4 Hypermatter annihilator, which was powerful enough to destroy the ship and half of a fleet if the restraints keeping it stable were released. For sublight propulsion, the Thranta-class relied on a configuration of four banks of two ion engines arrayed around its aft hull, and two larger engines mounted in the center.
Many Thranta-class corvettes had been were converted to civilian use during both the Great Galactic War and Galactic War, as well as the Cold War between them. Such corvettes, stripped-out of most of their weapons, were commonly designated as Wanderer-class transports.
