Federal Corvette
Superheavy Fighter

Description

The Federal Corvette is the smallest warship deployed by the Federation Navy. It is a quick, hard hitting vessel also capable of transporting cargo and personnel. Its versatility makes it the most common vessel of the Federation Navy that most people will encounter. It can be found everywhere, on long range patrol, peace keeping, pirate suppression, in fact anywhere the navy wishes to maintain a solid presence without deploying one of the Farragut class Battlecruisers. It is possible, but extremely rare for a private citizen to own one of these vessels. The ship can carry and deploy two small fighter class ships.

Built by Core Dynamics, the Federal Corvette is a ship that requires a Federation rank of Rear Admiral in order to pilot. It is the second largest player-piloted ship, only being surpassed in size by the Imperial Cutter.

The Corvette features two huge hardpoints, and it is the first ship capable of mounting multiple class 4 weapons at the same time.[3] The Huge hard points are located behind the cockpit, the mediums are on each side of the ship, the large one is on the belly. There are also two small weapon mounts on the nose of the ship.

Compared to other ships of its class, namely the Anaconda and the Imperial Cutter, the Corvette has roughly the same firepower, better handling and a much smaller jump range (due to it being more than twice as heavy as the Anaconda and having a smaller FSD compared to the Cutter).
