The Fazachu class System Defense Boat is a defensive warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

This craft has a similar role to the Imperial Dragon-class. It is, however, much better armed, faster, more comfortable, and far better armored. To encourage its crew to attack enthusiastically, the main weapons - four fusion guns - fire forward. The lasers are for minor threats and point defense. Unlike the 10-ton fighter, which attacks from an orbital platform or a spaceship, the SDB is streamlined to enable it to be based on less developed worlds or even hide in oceans.

The cargo space is provided just in case a crew on customs duty feels like confiscating something. Less expensive versions mount lasers and missile launchers instead of the fusion guns.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Built for the Hive Federation Navy, higher tech versions of this design are manufactured. "This craft has a similar role to the Imperial Dragon class. It is, however, much better armed, faster, more comfortable, and far better armored. To encourage its crew to attack enthusiastically, the main weapons - four fusion gun turrets can cover the forward firing arcs. The lasers are for minor threats and point defense. Unlike the 10-ton fighter, which acts from an orbital platform or a spaceship. the SDB is streamlined, to enable it to be based on less developed worlds or even hide in oceans. The cargo space is provided just in case a crew on customs duty feels like confiscating something. Less expensive versions mount lasers and missile launchers instead of the fusion guns."
