The Caryatid class System Defense Boat is a TL–14 warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Slightly larger than the TL–15 Dragon SDB, the Caryatid is a tall cylinder, with its decks arranged perpendicular to the direction of thrust. This allows the SDB to turn off its internal gravitics while maintaining station in a gas giant or on a world, thus reducing its densitometer profile. Unlike the Dragon, this design includes a 20-ton launch and 3 ship's troops, allowing it to perform customs inspections.
