Also referred to as the "Type 20," 3 are built per year. As large as several classes of light cruiser, this is a big destroyer and more expensive. Manufactured at TL–10 for the Mercantile Concord and this vessel is designed to carry out a variety of roles, and can deploy and recover a small platoon of twenty four marines. It is too small for a spinal mounted weapon and is not expected to stand with the ships of the line. It is expected to be escorted with support vessels. It has no cargo hold for extended provisions. It carries a low watch to replace casualties or to carry more troops. There is a redundant model 4 fib computer adjacent to the bridge. The hull is a streamlined needle/wedge equipped with scoops and purification for ocean refueling. For defense there is armor over critical systems, a battery of ten triple sand caster turrets, and a low powered repulsor bay. For offense there are two batteries of ten triple beam laser turrets, a particle accelerator bay, four 100 ton missile bays, and ten dual plasma gun turrets in a single battery. The plasma guns can track and target twenty fighters or missiles, for point defense. The ship has 6G acceleration with 6 agility. For patrol and combat space patrol duties this design carries a single squadron of ten 20 ton fighters of local design. The small marine platoon has drop capsules and a pair of ship's boats for recovery. The strategic jump range is limited by the TL–10 drives available. The ship can carry enough fuel for two jumps without refueling.

Yards on Fu Hsi (world), Chou (world), and Ju-i (world) also manufacture this ship at a low rate.
