The Farnex class System Missile Defense Boat is a defensive warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Farnez class of SDB is in many ways typical of the lower technology end of system defense. Still produced by the Imperial Navy and many lower tech worlds throughout the Imperium, this design makes sound economic sense as it enables lower tech shipyards to continue operation.

At 800 displacement tons the Farnez is larger than many standard SDBs however it is still effective at system defense. Due to its low technology levels, and its poor maneuver and agility ratings, the designers have wisely gone down the route of missile armament. Each Farnez has six missile turrets along with two double laser turrets for closer action. Sensors are the best the manufacturer can produce, to enable it to effectively engage targets with its missiles at long range, and it is quite common for owners to upgrade the sensor package to a more sophisticated model.

Magazine size has not been skimped, and the turrets have a large supply of missiles to feed upon. Armor is heavy and the craft’s low locomotion ratings, combined with a low powered laser system, give the ship a good operational period for its fuel load.
