The Millennium Falcon, a YT-1300f light freighter manufactured by the Corellian Engineering Corporation from planet Corellia, is most famously associated with its pilot Han Solo and co-pilot Chewbacca before and during the Galactic Civil War.
Before the war, the ship was used by Han Solo in his smuggling missions, and it later underwent numerous modifications to be better suited in the wars against the Galactic Empire. It was also used to save Princess Leia - she was kept in one of the smuggling compartments during her rescue. The modifications done to the ship was to its engine, weapons, and shield, so much so that it could outrun Imperial Star Destroyers.
When Han Solo decided to fight with The Alliance, the Millenium Falcon came in as an extremely handy machine, being able to sneak attack Darth Vader's TIE Advanced, and allowing Luke to fire the proton torpedo responsible for the destruction of the Death Star. When Han was captured, the Millennium Falcon was piloted by Lando Calrissian in search of Han and into the Battle of Endor, where it destroyed the second Death Star from the inside out.
For a few decades, Han Solo would lose ownership of the starship to criminals, but the pilot and ship are reunited when Han discovers that the ship had been abandoned in a desert planet called Jakku.
