This design is a product of the orbital boatyards of Garin (Far Home 0910), and represent one of the minor combatants of their fleet. This design serves with the Firstworlds fleet. It is an streamlined, conical structure hull fitted with scoops and on board fuel purification. These ships carry enough internal fuel for four jumps. The design is capable of ocean wilderness refueling unassisted. For defense, the hull is armored to resist minor surface explosions. They carry a triple sand caster turret, two triple beam laser turrets, two plasma guns firing in a point defense role, and four triple missile turrets for offense. Two of these ships can be carried aboard Garin class Light Carriers, for extended range scouting far beyond the border. Billeted aboard is a boarding party of six marines. The bridge is supported by a model 4 fib computer, and the engines are capable of 5G acceleration and have 3 agility.
