A Pador Military Forces destroyer escort design, built at the famous orbital shipyards of Pador. These are lightly armored, streamlined needle/wedge configuration hulls fitted with fuel scoops and on board purification for wilderness ocean refueling operations. Armed with two triple missile turrets, two triple beam laser turrets, and a dual fusion gun turret, it can deal with fighters and lighter enemy vessels. They typically conduct system patrols, escort minor trade conveys, pursue pirate corsairs, and conduct reconnaissance missions. She carries enough internal fuel capacity for a jump2 with a jump 1 reserve and is routinely fitted with a jump 2 drop tank for extended raiding operations. She is rated for 6 G acceleration and has 4 agility with a model 6 fib computer mounted adjacent to the bridge. It took 80 weeks to build the prototype, and the production models require 64 weeks to fit out and test.
