Paramilitary Ships are a step in-between civilian and military starships. They patrol the system as police, inspectors, and in a variety institutional roles. They may carry armament, but usually much less than a comparable military platform.

  • Paramilitary ships typically mount "standard" grade sensors.

Please refer to the following AAB library data for more information:

Description / Specifications[edit]

This page primarily covers Imperial ships and those ships that frequent the Imperial Fringe. Paramilitary ships are typically industrial and system defense ships although the class generally includes many kinds of communications ships as well.
