The TC8 Nedric class Corvette class is used by the Trooles Confederation. These partially streamlined cylindrical structures are a contribution from the planetary navy of a member state. This world had an older local system defense monitor design based on an armored tube. Armor was the primary concern and all other factors were of secondary importance. Civilian merchant drives were pressed into service and the performance suffered greatly. As a result it is the slowest class of ship in the fleet. It is frequently deployed alone or in pairs because it lacks the speed, agility and range to keep up with the main fleet elements. They also arrived for duty with a pair of obsolete Model 4 fib computers. Plans were in the works for hardware and software upgrades and refits but have yet to be approved. They carry a platoon of marines with a TC02 Grave Endeavor class Dropship and a pair of 4 ton TC004 Rambler class Grav APCs.
