History & Background[edit]

The Hunter Class Armored Scout is a recent development from the Solomani Navy. Being outnumbered and often outclassed by the Imperial Navy, SolSec, and the Solomani Navy needs every possible advantage, including intelligence and recon. Therefore an new scout class was commissioned with very precise requirements. The new ships was to be at least as armed and fast than its imperial counterpart, it was also to be more armored, fully stealthed and as efficient than the Type S Scout. Only the Avalon Shipyards were able to fit all those requirements in a 100dt hull.

Class Naming Practice/s & Peculiarities[edit]

Vessel Peculiarities: Commissioned before the Rebellion, the Hunter has seen many battles and has perfectly performed all its missions. The only regret from the different crew is size of the crew area, which means that crew-members must be recruited with a high social rating...
