Stormbringer class Fleet Tenders are part of The Democratic People's Defense Forces, the military of the Winston Democracy. They are built with covert Solomani naval assistance and construction is overseen by Solomani technical advisers. The Solomani gain certain advantageous economic opportunities, diplomatic privileges and political favors in exchange. Several systems within the Winston Democracy are not advanced enough to support continuous naval activities and ships are moved into position only when needed.
