Description (Specifications)[edit]

Capable of 6Gs acceleration and carrying a pair of model 3 fib computers, this design is the largest native built system defense boat built in the Zydarian Codominium. It follows the SDB pattern of carrying the thickest armor available and features a fully streamlined needle/wedge hull. It can carry a squad of marines for boarding actions. It is armed with a particle accelerator bay and a pair of heavy missile bays and carries no turrets as a result. It has some agility and twenty-two tons of cargo space.
