The Fiery class Close Escort is a light warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

These close escorts despite being woefully ineffective as combatants are fairly effective as deterrents to marauding forces. Many a merchant trader owes a debt of gratitude to the long-serving Gazelles and Fieries of the Imperial Navy and local sector navies. Not the best fighter, but often there when you need them. [1]
