The Skukikikar class Patrol Cruiser is a warship.
- It is a military ship.
These TL–11 ships carry a reinforced company of 150 League Marines. These advanced TL–13 marines are equipped with IR chameleon battle dress, PGMP-Ds, grav belts and drop capsules. Built to emulate the tougher Ardi class Battle Riders, only close inspection can tell them apart. However, these are Fleet Destroyers and not SDBs. They can be carried by the League class Fleet Tender, and they use their doppelganger appearance to fool enemy gunners, who might mistake them for the other 5,000 ton SDB designs in the fleet.
