Coruscant Home Defense Fleet, also known as the Coruscant Home Fleet, was a Republic Navy sized fleet that served above Coruscant as a deterrent toward their enemies.

History[]

The Coruscant Home Defense Fleet was set into motion around the start of the Clone Wars. The fleet was assigned to serve in the Grand Army of the Republic, specifically the Republic Navy.

In 19 BBY, the fleet served at the Battle of Coruscant, where the Supreme Chancellor, Sheev Palpatine, had been kidnapped by the Confederacy of Independent Systems' lead general, Grievous.[1] The fleet was able to fight off the Separatist forces, destroying a part of their contingent and forcing the rest to retreat. The fleet at the time of this battle was under the command of Republic officer Honor Salima.[2]

Armor and Equipment[]

The fleet was equipped with a plethora of Venator-class Star Destroyers, as well as their own set of squadrons that served on the ships. These vehicles likely consisted of Low Altitude Assault Transport/infantry, V-19 Torrent starfighters, Y-wing bombers, and Aggressive ReConnaissance-170 starfighters.
