The Arquitens-class light cruiser (better known as the Imperial Light Cruiser) was a starship used by the Galactic Empire. They were faster and smaller than the Empire's main warships, and were used as light reinforcements, among other roles. Their crew consisted of Imperial Officers and were the newer generation of the light cruiser previously used by the Galactic Republic.
Light Cruisers possess their own internal hangar bays for TIE Fighters, though they are relatively small.
One of these cruisers was positioned over Lothal to transmit information from courier droids to other Imperial worlds, since the Empire's long-range comm tower on the planet was destroyed following an incident with the Lothal rebels.
