was "the vanguard of interdicting technology" but it doesn't say it was an Interdictor
-class ship. Meh. I'm probably just splitting hairs on this one...
EDIT 2: I stand corrected. 3956 BBY it is.
Calling it an Interdictor is it's function, not it's type. Like a Heavy or light cruiser.
According to the Canon (Outbound Flight) the technology to create a gravitational field (The primary force used by an Interdictor to stop a ship from going into hyperspace) didn't exist until right before the Clone Wars.
