Daryen Logo Large.png

They serve with the Geonee Self Defense Forces and the Darrian Navy. A variant of this class is also built at Sibikaar (world). Because of their thrust, they tend to avoid larger gravity wells. They are only marginally effective in massed attacks versus commercial targets, and nearly useless in a dogfight.
