The Nexus Harrier class System Defense Boat is a defensive warship.
They have a very heavily armored streamlined needle/wedge hull capable of atmospheric operations and is fitted with fuel scoops for ocean refueling. They offer 6-G acceleration, and 6-Agility. There is a large fusion power plant dedicated to providing nimble agility and feeding the computer's power demands. They are armed with four triple missile turrets, a dual fusion gun turret, and a triple beam laser turret. The crew consists of a pilot, navigator, 8 engineers, medic, 4 gunners, and 15 marines. The marines have drop capsules for orbital assaults. They are part of the Nexus Fleet Forces and mount a pair of model 6 fib computers adjacent to the bridge with a complete auxiliary command center. The extra bridge is for use in the case of battle damage. These boats are hidden throughout the system in fortified hangars. They are fitted to carry drop tanks with an additional 28 days of power plant fuel, so that they can remain on station for an extended time. Five squadrons of ten ships each, are secreted throughout the system to defend key installations. They are often co-located with fighter squadrons.
