History

The ‘Pirate II’ Corvette is a strange creature. No one quite knows where these are constructed or who builds them, not even the pirates that own them seem to know. It has been given the name ‘Pirate II’ by a SAN analyst who saw similarities with the original Pirate Corvette and when that ended up in the hands of the news services even the pirates started calling them that. Unlike it’s named predecessor, it is more than a simple scout. Instead it’s able to carry small loads of cargo allowing them to operate independently and they are almost always target short haul transports with important goods. Several will strike at the same time across multiple locations and steal only as much cargo as they can carry, then they book back toward their mothership without exposing the FTL capable craft at all.

It has very simple armaments with a pair of laser turrets and a railgun in a partial turret that can angle it up or down, though not side to side. The rest of the ship carries fuel and cargo, or is part of the engine pods. It mounts a respectable 4:10 LGS setup that lets it outrun pretty all freighters and nearly all military vessels.
