Description (Specifications)[edit]

Comments: Originally intended as a fast-reacting fighting ship, its actual use has evolved with experience. The ship is currently in favor as a flagship for many minor operations. Its high jump capability make it extremely responsive to most situations, and it is possible to displace troops or service crew (or both) to provide quarters for command and staff personnel. [1]
