Description (Specifications)[edit]

Capable of 5Gs acceleration and carrying a pair of model 2 fib computers, this SDB design is a native built system defense boat built in the Zydarian Codominium. It follows the SDB pattern of carrying the thickest armor available and features a fully streamlined needle/wedge hull. It can carry a squad of marines for boarding actions. It is armed with a heavy missile bay and carries no turrets as a result. It has some agility and six tons of cargo space.

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]
