The Skirmisher Corvette is much like the Spearhead Frigate in that it was made later on by most of the same design team. The key to it’s design is a set of modular bays capable of holding many different weapon configurations or kept as storage space for cargo. It’s main drawback is that while capable of entering and maneuvering in an atmosphere, it cannot land except in fairly deep water, It was meant for use by Colony Militias or private citizens, and it has been used by both, however it’s also a favorite of pirates who have even built their own knockoffs.

Pretty much every weapon has seen use on a Skirmisher before, however no one or even half a dozen configurations has become ‘normal’ for it. It mounts 2 primary fusion torch drives and two smaller secondary fusion torch drives that all provide thrust. The larger set of primary drives are usually not used near stations or other ships. The initial models lacked LGS, however all later models and refit ones have a 3:10 setup.
