Description (Specifications)[edit]

Beautiful in their black and green stripes these lean, sleek craft were aesthetically widely admired. Initially built in large numbers, it was only realized later how fragile they were in combat. Fast and agile, but otherwise defenseless, flotillas of these craft did not perform well in a protracted fur ball. They had a good Jump-4 range and a respectable weapons load of a heavy missile bay and six beam lasers. They lacked fiber optic back-ups and had no fuel refinery. They were relatively cheap to mass produce and could be assembled quickly, unarmed versions of this class were sold to private firms with the missile bay converted to hold cargo.
