The Kandosii-type dreadnaught, named after the Mando'a word for "ruthless", was the largest capital ship[2] used by the Mandalorians during the Mandalorian Wars.



The Kandosii design had sharp, thin lines and were based on a variety of stolen technologies. A notable flaw in their design was that their hyperspace navigation systems could be crippled by a strategically-placed charge in the rear

Offensive and defensive systemsEdit

Kandosii-type dreadnaughts were heavily armed for combat, with 30 medium double turbolaser cannons providing the main offensive firepower. They also carried 12 point-defense triple laser cannons placed at certain places as to give full hull coverage. Each dreadnaught also had 12 super-heavy concussion missile launchers that could bombard capital ships,[2] or hold nuclear missiles to bombard planets, as seen at the Battle of Serroco.[3] These missile launchers were located in the ship's bow and the lower protruding superstructure.

Hangar complementEdit

The Kandosii-type had a large cargo hold and could carry up to 128 starfighters for self-defense and offensive strikes. Usually the most common fighter was the Davaab-type starfighter. Each dreadnaught could also carry eight Shaadlar-type troopships with 800 troops each. In addition to these, the Kandosii-type could carry several Basilisk war droids.


Originally designed and built by the Fenelar, the Mandalorians stole the Kandosii-type design, during their conquest and destruction of the species. These dreadnaughts were later used by the Mandalorian Neo-Crusaders during the Mandalorian Wars against the Galactic Republic.[2]

A Mandalorian Dreadnaught led a battle group of Jehavey'ir-type assault ships during the Battle of Serroco, where the fleet bombarded the planet's surface with nuclear missiles.[3] Later in the war, a ship of this type lead by Cassus Fett bombarded the surface of Jebble to stop the Rakghoul plague from spreading to other systems.
