Built for the Federation of Garrone, this class of TL–11 Destroyer was noted for its ridiculously thick armor for a vessel of its size. Due to the expense of this armor they were considered expensive for their size and only six were initially ordered. Locally built, these ships were partially streamlined with a close structure. They are equipped with fuel scoops for gas giant refueling and had a purification refinery. This design was used as an escort and were dispatched in small groups to handle patrol and border enforcement duties. They were mobile and visible to dissuade piracy and commerce raiding. This design was plagued by relatively light weapons. There were four triple beam laser turrets grouped into a single battery, four plasma guns for point defense and six triple missile turrets grouped into a single torpedo battery. The model 5 fib computer handled fire control, target lock and sensor sweeps. They had 3 G's acceleration and 3 agility with jump 2 range. They carried a 20 ton gig as an interface craft.
