History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Imperial light cruisers are typically found in groups of 10, with numerous destroyers and destroyer escorts running alongside. Alone, a single Kargash can deliver devastating blows to an enemy’s vessel. When light cruisers are used in concert with all of their escorts, they are a sight to be feared.
