Basic Description

Description of the Ship:
Corvettes are very useful starships because they are so easy to build and provide a cheap alternative to frigates. The corvette is another experiment in Terran military tactics. Having watched Rosebourg wolf-packs in action, military researchers began exploring ways of applying similar tactics to some Terran units, and found the corvette most suitable.

Although lacking in power on its own, the corvette can be deadly in numbers, and will provide multiple targets for a single, superior attacker, providing firing from all sides. Corvettes are mainly involves in convoy or VIP escort and patrol of friendly/unknown borders to make the UNPPF's presence known.

Corvettes can also be found assigned to facilities for protection, often UNPPF space stations will have several corvettes to complement their assigned fighters in protection of the facility.
