Planetary holdouts would be dealt with by traditional occupation methods: interdiction of supplies, isolation from the planetary population, and strikes on detected bases.
Because of the essential nature of frontier refueling, especially in the light of the damage to ports and shipping during the war - securing gas giants was a vital necessity.
Patrol assets were needed for the task - but there was one problem: current vessels were not suited for patrolling gas giant atmospheres for any useful length of time, and these vessels were also in widespread use in the coreward section of the former Solomani Sphere - and so could be used to make sneak attacks on shipping.
The Lurishar Killaum Patrol Cruiser had been developed at the behest of a particularly insightful staff officer during the middle of the conflict, and so was available to undertake stabilization duties during the post-bellum era.
Its airframes hull was suited to crushing in the upper and middle atmosphere of typical gas giants in low-emissions modes. The balanced laser/missile armament allowed gas giant specific munitions to be utilized. Finally, the addition of a long-endurance military boat added not only a great utility craft - but a very useful spotter for coordinating attacks in and around gas giant.
