    The Xiytiar-class Transport is slow, sluggish and unarmed. It is a type of ship that tends to stay on the well-patrolled main shipping lanes. This older model of ship has little going for it beyond its thick hull and tough shield generators. Its shape was a favourite of many smugglers, even though this ship is far larger than most smuggling vessels. A famous example of smugglers employing this design would be the Hyperspace Marauder, which is owned and operated by Lo Khan and Luwingo. It is also known that the Rebels and pirates also employ this ship.

    Its bridge (the sole forward view port) is located above and to the starboard of the main docking door (which is large enough to allow a YT-1300 to pass through), opposite to the bridge is the sensor array. This three ion engine ship's main cargo compartment is located in the forward section, while its power generator is located in the aft section. A retractable docking tube is located in the aft section of the main cargo compartment, below the ship's neck. Even though in its stock form the Xiytiar is unarmed, adding weapons to it is not impossible, as for example the Hyperspace Marauder is armed with a pair of forward mounted 700-Penetrator Laser Cannons.
