The YV-545 light freighter was a light freighter produced by the Corellian Engineering Corporation in an attempt to replace the aging YT series freighters. The YV-545 had a cylindrical hull, with the cockpit mounted to the side like most CEC designs. The YV-545 was considered to be sturdier and more maneuverable than the YT-series vessels, though lacked the visual appeal of the YT-1300 light freighter. In flight the cockpit rotated 90 degrees to be on top of the starship, while the body remained beneath. Though the ship could land in this configuration as well, most buyers saw this design as too complex.
