The Golan III Space Defense NovaGun, also known simply as the Golan III, was the final space station in Golan Arms' series of space defense platforms.

Built as a more powerful successor to the dangerous Golan II, the Golan III was larger and arguably better armed than an Imperial-class Star Destroyer. Just as the Golan II had stronger shields and a sturdier hull than the Golan I, the Golan III had shields at least 25% stronger than a Golan II and a similar increase in hull durability. 

They were armed with 50 turbolaser batteries, 24 proton torpedo launchers, and 15 tractor beam projectors, and had a hangar capable of holding at least 12 starfighters. 

Golan III platforms were assigned to the most valuable locations in the galaxy. One notable use of Golan III platforms was their deployment as scanner stations in the Byss Security Zone, working in concert with Imperial-class Super Star Destroyers. 

They were also stationed above many other valuable worlds, such as Coruscant and Muunilinst, remaining in use through the end of the Yuuzhan Vong War and beyond.
