The Richtofen class Missile Corvette is a light warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The 400 dTon Richtofen class Missile Corvette is a Terran Confederation ship deployed during the Interstellar Wars era.

Designed as a response to Ziru Sirka missile craft, the Richtofen class ship was one of the more successful craft deployed to fight the Vilani Imperium from the Third through Eighth Interstellar Wars. Designed to withstand lasers and Vilani missile batteries by brute force alone, the ship's notable weakness is a lack of defensive armament. Packed with missiles, drives and crew, the Richtofen is a very crowded vessel.

Richtofen class missile corvettes were traditionally named after famous historic Terran military aviators.
