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, or hold nuclear missiles to bombard planets, as seen at the Battle of Serroco. These missile launchers were located in the ship's bow and the lower protruding superstructure.
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.
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. 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.
