It is a 200dton Private Merchant. Originally a Sharurshid (Anglic: Sharurshid) built ship, it was designed to meet the trade needs of worlds not part of the Ziru Sirka (Anglic: Ziru Sirka) trade route system.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Cheap and easy to manufacture, many of this class of ships where captured during the wars. Ziru Sirka (Anglic: Ziru Sirka) negotiators generally did not demand their return. Sold cheaply to Terran bidders at scrapyard prices, they where converted into independent trading and exploration vessels.

Class Naming Practice/s & Peculiarities[edit]

Ziru Sirka (Anglic: Ziru Sirka) generally did not name ships of the class, only registry numbers. The name disigshur (Anglic: disigshur) is a form of Vilani sandwich, which Terran translation software translated as Hero. The Terran Confederation Navy designation was "Type A"
