CR-90T "Tug-Vette"

The Corellian CR90 Corvette has spawned many variants. One of the more common is the interstellar towing variant, used to transport damaged ships or non-hyperspace capable platforms (such as space stations and skyhooks) through hyperspace. While known officially as the CR90T, it is more popularly known by the colloquialism "Tug-Vette".

The Tug-Vette replaces the standard CR90's turret mounted dual turbolasers with a pair of heavy tractor beam projectors, supplemented by a pair of short ranged towing tractors on either side of the ship's engines. In addition, the ship has been equipped with more powerful reactors and power distribution systems, and the hull has been reinforced by and augmented by magnetic structural integrity fields. Also, the bow cargo hold has been replaced by a massive pressor field generator. A pressor field is, essentially, the opposite of a tractor beam, as it pushes objects away from the ship instead of pulling it toward it. The bow mounted pressor field allows the Tug-Vette to push against a vessel without physically coming into contact with it, and the field is sufficiently powerful that the Tug-Vette's drives can not overcome it (i.e. the tug can't push through the field, so all the kinetic energy is transferred to the target). When towing a ship through hyperspace, the Tug-Vette places hyperdrive field booster relays on the hull of the towed vessel in order to strengthen and expand its hyperdrive field.

Special Rules:
Towing Capacity:
The Tug-Vette can tow any ship up to 4D Hull with no reduction in performance. However, for every pip above 4D, the ship's performance begins to suffer (-1 Space, -1 Maneuverability, and +1 to Hyperdrive Modifier per pip). Multiple Tug-Vettes may coordinate to tow a single ship, increasing the performance threshold by 1D per tug, but normal coordination rules apply.

Nice stats. Though has it ever been confirmed somewhere in novels or other sources that a ship can tractor 'tow' another ship through hyperspace?

I've never read anything that says either way. But if nothing else, space stations have to get from planet to planet somehow...

Didn't Han or Lando tow Luke's X-wing in one of the Thrawn books?

Yes, but IIRC, they did that by clamping it to the Falcon's hull, not by using a tractor beam.
