Union (of) Garth Space Navy Design Plan

This vessel is constructed from a standard design plan which uses a time-tested design features. Assembled from largely pre-fabricated kits, commercial shipyards can quickly build these ships. A naval architectural firm produces these plans in four weeks for 1% of the final ship cost. Because these hulls are so standardized and have been in use for so long, a 10% discount is available.

These hulls are familiar and easy to build. With a small down payment these vessels are made available with government backed financing.


This standard hull costs 100 MCr. and 10 MCr. to streamline it.

Engineering Section[edit]

Drives are installed in the 165 ton engineering section.

It mounts stock P class jump drives, and T class maneuver drive and power plant. In this size hull that produces jump 2, 3G acceleration and 3 power rating. These cost 356 MCr. installed.

Main Compartment[edit]

The corvette has an 835 ton main compartment.
