The Federation of Arden builds and maintains as large a system defense force as it can afford. The linchpin of the Federation Defense Fleet is a class of large system defense boats which strain the local TL–8 ship building capabilities. This is a streamlined needle/wedge configuration hull to provide defense versus meson armed combatants. The hull carries as much armor as possible the only other defense is four triple sand caster turrets grouped as a battery. A set of five triple pulse laser turrets can target up to fifteen targets to blunt missile strikes and fend off fighters. The major weaponry is a pair of massive weapon bays. One is allocated for missiles and the other is a particle accelerator. The 5G main drive allows fair agility. The model 2bis computer is seen as a tactical limitation . There is a large fifty ton cargo bay that allows some flexibility. Extra troops, vehicles and supplies can be moved around the system to support defensive operations needed to maintain the system's strict neutrality.
