History

The Hammer Corvette was created as a heavy combat spacecraft that was around the same size as shuttles or heavy fighters. This meant they could have much smaller crews than Frigates or cruisers and had the punch to take on combat converted freighters if needed. True purpose built military craft were still very rare when it was designed. It also is much to small for a stardrive of any sort during it’s era. They are still found in service acting as escorts to larger ships when engaged in military actions or as defense of colony worlds guarding and protecting entire systems from pirates or other threats.

The hammer is armed with 4 UV lasers, a pair of heavy missile launchers, a set of four dual missile launchers, and four six port small missile launchers. The heavy missiles are for use against larger vessels as are the dual missile launchers, while the lasers and small missile launchers are designed to deal with other small craft. The whole craft is around 30m in length with a crew of just two. It uses a single large Fusion Torch drive for maneuvering.
