Baleen-class heavy freighter was a bulk freighter model used to move huge amounts of cargo. Baleen-class freighters were about 400 meters long and were quite clumsy, but their forward compartment could be opened in transit and used to salvage items found drifing in space, even entire starships. One such freighter was the Eravana, Han Solo and Chewbacca's ship after the loss of the Millennium Falcon.
