Description (Specifications)[edit]

Comments: The P. F. Sloan class Fleet Escort is intended for routine fleet security and support. Fleet escorts are assigned in quantity for local or system defense any time that several squadrons or a fleet are present. If it is remembered that Sloans are lightly armed and armored, then their performance can be seen as admirable, although they cannot withstand major engagements. [1]
