History

The Desert Scorpian Corvette is a fairly recent design by the Caliphate Shipyards for the Imirian Navy. They had long ignored corvettes, preferring fighters or frigates instead. However within the last couple of decades they have realized the gap in their force strength and the result is the Desert Scorpian with heavy firepower capability and acceptably quick speed for it’s size.

The Desert Scorpian mounts a dorsal laser cannon for a decently long range opener. It has a pair of dual barreled railguns for close in work. However the main punch is from a pair of three port standard missile launchers to either side of the cockpit. A pair of wing pylons capable of holding three heavy anti-ship missiles provides an even heavier kick, though they are one shot weapons and are not protected by the ships armor.
