The YVG Corvette is a member of Corellian Engineering Corporation's most recent product range - the YV generation. The YVG Corvette shares many similarities with CEC's standard Corvette, but rather than being a Multipurpose vessel the YVGC is designed to serve as an escort and a patrol vessel.
The YVG Corvette's prow shares the long, tall and narrow hull design, which is the hallmark of the YV generation. Whilst, the central and aft portions of the hull share a number of the designs incorporated in the standard Corvette. The most noticeable difference is the design of the engine block, which only houses three very powerful engines opposed to the eleven engines mounted on the standard Corvette. Some other noticeable differences include the addition of an extra pair of double turbolaser turrets and the removal of the large sensor arrays, which are now located in the prow of the vessel.
The prow contains the main hold (capable of holding 2,000 tons), the majority of the crew compartments, the bridge, various utility rooms, side and ventral retractable docking tubes. The central portion of the vessel contains weapon stations, the main boarding ramp, escape pods (like the standard Corvette some of the YVGC's escape pods also double up as weapon stations), the security section, the brig, the secondary hold (capable of holding 500 tons), troop barracks and the medical ward. The aft portion of the vessel contains main engineering, some crew compartments (used primarily by the engineers), a small repair facility and the secondary boarding ramp.
While the YVGC is intended for light combat duty, it can easily be converted to other roles like most other CEC vessels. A common modification is the conversion of the main hold into a fighter bay. Standard Imperial practice is to fit racking for three TIE/ln, however, without this racking it can only hold two fighters up to 13 meters in length. Another favourite is the conversion of the main hold into a troop compartment, which can hold up to 400 troops.
The YVGC is seeing use with the Empire, the Alliance and a number of planetary customs agencies. There have been recent reports of pirates using them as well.
