The Fer-de-Lance class Destroyer Escort is one of the more commonly encountered Imperial destroyer escorts and was produced in large manufacturing runs from several different shipyards.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Performance characteristics for this class make it capable of staying with most Imperial fleets (Jump-4, 6-G acceleration), and thus this type of vessel can be found escorting most squadrons as well as more typical convoys. [1]

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Comments: During the height of the Third Frontier War (979 to 986), high losses in civilian shipping and among transport vessels impressed into Imperial service resulted in the issuance of an Admiralty specification for a mid-sized escort vessel expressly for close protection of unarmed transport craft. The design which was finally accepted was the Fer-de-lance class Destroyer Escort. [15]
