The Heavy Corvette is a corvette-class vessel developed by the Taiidan Empire.
Designed to be the ultimate strike craft killer, possess four medium-sized mass drivers with which they can attack enemy strike craft with ease. The corvette, while too slow to take on Assault Frigates on their own, often can take down other frigates and also possesses a "burst mode" that allows it to fire exploding shells onto incoming strike craft or slow Capital Ships.
- An unarmed, ambassadorial version of this corvette exists if the game is played as the Taiidan.
- This is one of the few ships in Homeworld which does not have a known class name.
