The Zydpharn class System Defense Boat is produced at the local Zydarian Codominium boatyard on Zydpharn at the local technology level.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Only capable of 2Gs with its engines, and limited to a model 2 fib, this craft has some difficulty contending with more modern designs. It does however, have the thickest armored, fully streamlined needle/wedge hull its technology level permits. It can carry a squad of marines for boarding actions and each crew member has their own stateroom for greater comfort on long patrols. There are no floor plates, so a spin habitat must be employed to combat the zero-G conditions. Armed with a twin pulse laser turret and a triple missile turret it has the best agility it can manage and a ten ton cargo hold for provisions.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

This crude TL–7 craft is deployed in large numbers to ensure success. The Zydarian Codominium Star Legion has no intention of using them as battle riders, they are left to defend the system in which they were built.
