Kuat Drive Yards
The Products and Yards Themselves
Kuat Drive Yards' products include the tiny, one-man TIE fighters; the hulking AT-ATs; planetary defense turbolasers; and the mighty Star Dreadnaughts. Being the largest shipbuilding corporation in the galaxy and almost as old as the Republic itself, KDY was able to afford massive shipyards. Its first shipyard, a massive ring that encircles the entire planet of Kuat, is called the Orbital Array, and it houses the more important shipbuilding facilities. Farther out are various other facilities, including a belt of shipyards that surrounds the entire Kuat system.
