The Kotaka class Escort Corvette is a light warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Armed with six torpedo tubes, four fusion guns, and three pulse lasers, these agile ships lacked jump range, heavy armor and fiber optic backups for the computer against hard radiation. Streamlined and equipped with an Air Raft, they could operate within planetary atmospheres and often hid there from their unsuspecting prey. By keeping their power output low they could minimize their electro-magnetic signature. A close range ambush was their favorite tactic, as the four fusion gun batteries tended to deliver the heaviest short range punch.
