The Serpent class Police Cutter is a police boat.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

It is a vessel with 6-G and J-0 performance with a streamlined wedge hull.

These fast-moving system defence boats are used to patrol the space around settled worlds. As they have no Jump drive they can use the spare internal space to mount a more powerful manoeuvre drive, giving it six Gs of acceleration which is more than enough catch enemy ships. It has two staterooms for the crew, and ten low berths for prisoners or marines. It has twenty tons of cargo space and carries a life boat for rescue missions. A triple turret with a pair of missile launchers and a pulse laser gives the cutter enough firepower to deal with most foes.
