The YT-2400 is similar to other YT-series ships from Corellian Engineering Corporation, featuring a saucer-shaped hull and a starboard-mounted command pod. However, unlike other YT-series ships, the YT-2400 is not meant to be exclusively a freighter. Stock 2400s are well-armed directly from the factory, and, like most CEC-built ships, can be modified to hold even more weapons. Thus, the design is favored by mercenaries and smugglers, or anyone else who needs a well-armed transport. -Source: Shadows of the Empire Sourcebook
One of the light freighters in CEC's successful YT-series, the YT-2400 incorporates the saucer-shaped hull design that made the YT-1300 popular. However, the YT-2400 does not have the paired, forward-facing mandibles. It is simply the saucer hull with a heavily-braced cockpit section off to the right side. The YT-2400 has improved hull plating, power to spare, and additional space in the cargo and engine compartments. Thus, it was easily modified to accommodate larger engines and smuggling compartments. At 21 meters in length, the YT-2400 was also slightly smaller than its predecessors, although it had the capacity to transport up to six passengers and 150 metric tons of cargo. Flying the YT-2400 demanded the skills of a pilot and co-pilot. The basic configuration was armed with a turret-mounted laser cannon. Source:Unofficial Star Wars Encyclopedia
Perhaps the most famous YT-2400 was the Outrider.
