Description (Specifications)[edit]

Sirocco Converge class Attack Boat class system defense vessels serve with Uffan Strategic Space Forces, the armed forces of the Uffan (world). They are armored, streamlined conical structure hulls. They rely on their heavy armor and sand casters to stay out of trouble. They use their 6-G acceleration to pursue and hunt down invaders. The second computer helps keep them in the fight in the event of battle damage.

Basic Ship Characteristics[edit]

Following the Imperial Navy and IISS Universal Ship Profile and data, additional information is presented in the format shown here. The small craft factor indicates the number of squadrons (of ten craft) carried on the ship. Tonnage on the universal ship profile is shown in kilotons (thousands of tons) where necessary. [1]
