History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Designed and built by Saldazar (1633 Far Home) A341753-B after 56 weeks for the prototype and 45 weeks for the production models at modest expense. In keeping with the Saldazar Security Squadron's internal security mission, this class was designed with a defensive mindset. They carry the armor to limit critical internal hits. The weapon systems have been reworked based on combat experience. The Class A refit ships remove the two single plasma gun turrets and these are replaced with six beam lasers grouped into a single high intensity battery. The triple missile launchers also fire as a single battery now. Four ships have been converted so far. A total of nine ships of this class are currently in service. Six of these ships can be carried by the three available Trundi Fringe class Light Cruisers. This affords extended range standoff strikes.
