The Bra’la class corvette transport is the shepherd of the Zhodani frontier it enables the Zhodani to tailor a response to the various military or paramilitary situations along the frontier without drawing much of the political attention as if when a capital vessel is present. Often used to land small parties of troops to secure or reinforce Consulate interests abroad along with the Frontiers as well as in the neutral zones between it and the Third Imperium or other interstellar governments. The Bra’la class is apart of the same little ship design watershed that occurred with the naval review of 1112. It like it sister classes shares many of the same physical characteristics as the Berka or Banya class corvettes, yet it is without the fighter complement and lacks the agility of its sister classes. Often encountered in pairs it carries a detachment of Special Naval Landing Force troops. Doctrinal organization dictates that four Bra’la class corvettes are assigned to each Corvette Flotilla giving the Flotilla commander the disposal of half a ZSNLF rifle company for ground actions.
