History & Background
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 were converted into independent trading and exploration vessels.
Class Naming Practice/s & Peculiarities
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"
