The Ronix class Asteroid Patrol Boat is a warship.
The Ronix class Asteroid Patrol Boat is used by the Royal Peladon Navy, a branch of the military of the Kingdom of Peladon in Theta Borealis Sector. It serves as a Destroyer Escort. The hull is roughly sculpted into a tapered, generally conical shape but it is not streamlined. It has large internal fuel tanks allowing it to perform multiple jumps. The craft is fast and relatively agile and mounts a range of weaponry enabling it to deal with a variety of threats. It carries a small launch that is used to harvest fuel.
