The YT-2000 transport was a precursor to the YT-2400 that saw a limited production run, but was a significant improvement over the traditionally offset cockpits like the kind used in the YT-1300 light freighter.

CharacteristicsEdit

The cockpit was situated in the center of the craft, unlike the YT-2000's predecessors. The cockpit also had a different set-up. Instead of having the pilot and co-pilot side by side, the pilot sat in front while the co-pilot was situated behind and raised above the pilot, with no room for any other people in the cockpit.

Even with all of these changes, the YT-2000 still maintained the traditional YT series saucer design. With the cockpit pod in the center of the ship, docking and maneuvering was made easier as opposed to having to gauge distance to the far side of the ship.

Additionally, the ship boasted a double laser turret as standard weaponry, due to the more dangerous times in which the ship was built. Rumors abounded that the YT-2000 was originally intended to be the "next generation" model of transports for Corellian Engineering Corporation; however, industrial espionage forced them to release the ship before the design was finalized lest they were beaten to the punch by a competitor.

It was also rumored that the engineers at CEC had trouble convincing the Imperial Regulatory Commission that the YT-2000 was a civilian ship, as the YT-2000 was heavily armed and armored and yet was amazingly agile for a craft of its size.
