History

The Claymore Corvette is a recent design intended to replace the Hammer Corvette within the SAN. It is much much larger than the Hammer and is around half the size of most frigates with crew quarters more inline with a frigate. It is less reliant on missiles in combat and excels as a long range patrol vessel and system scout. It makes use of state of the art Gravitic technology going so far as to give it the ability to land on and reach orbit from a planet making it one of the largest vessels which can. With crews as small as nine people gravity can be limited to crew areas only and reduce the power requirements while providing a comfortable experience.

It is armed with quad UV lasers, sixteen point defense lasers, and a pair of missile launchers (2×4 shot launchers). It has a modern FTL drive system allowing it to bridge the distance between systems within reasonable lengths of time, while slightly slower than many other FTL generators it is the smallest FTL generator currently available. It is around 90m in length and is propelled by a pair of Fusion Torch drives and a pair of enhanced VASIMR engines.
