The Tantive IV is actually a Corellian Corvette that was Princess Leia Organa's personal ship. It is pictured above just below a Star Destroyer's docking bay. It was on this ship that Leia gave the Death Star plans to R2-D2 and was captured by Darth Vader. The ship is armed with four double turbolaser cannons and sixteen single turbolasers. This particular "Blockade Runner" was captured by a Star Destroyer and then destroyed over Tatooine. The Tantive IV has appeared in Episode IV only, considering it was destroyed soon there after.
