The Nassin class System Defense Boat is a defensive warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The TL–9 streamlined needle/wedge structured hulls are equipped with fuel scoops and on board fuel purification for wilderness ocean refueling. They have the the thickest armor reinforcement possible at this technology level. This renders them highly resistant to surface strikes. These craft are renowned for their ability to absorb punishment. Two of these ships can be carried by a Merant class Fleet Tender. They can carry a 2 dton Air/Raft and a 10 ton Launch. They are armed with two 100 ton missile bays. They have a Model-3 fib computer mounted adjacent to the bridge and are capable of 6-G acceleration and have a 5-Agility rating.
