The Fiery class Close Escort is a light warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

These close escorts despite being woefully ineffective as combatants are fairly effective as deterrents to marauding forces. Many a merchant trader owes a debt of gratitude to the long-serving Gazelles and Fieries of the Imperial Navy and local sector navies. Not the best fighter, but often there when you need them. [1]

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. [2]
