Description (Specifications)[edit]

Ming class Corvettes have imperial fleet level jump mobility but below average acceleration and agility. They can keep up with imperial fleet maneuvers in the 108th Fleet where they serve. They are partially streamlined for gas giant refueling if need be, with scoops and refineries. This corvette features a massive fusion power plant, for their size, to allow it to power a model 9fib computer, a pair of triple beam laser turrets, a pair of particle accelerator turrets, and a pair of dual fusion gun turrets. The main weapon is a compact missile bay, and there is a pair of sand caster turrets for defense. A well guarded secret outside naval circles is the presence of a factor one, black globe generator. This was installed, not to allow the ship to withstand bombardment, it doesn't carry the capacitor strength to permit that, but for stealth operations. These are of imperial manufacture and are unrealiable under heavy bombardment, they do however, work great for concealing the location of the ship. They also carry a marine platoon for security and boarding actions. They have a Pinnace, to support marine operations.
