ADVANCED SYSTEMS

STRENGTHS

  • Pursuit Frigate: The Tachys is designed for speed, its hull sleek and outfitted with solar panels reminiscent of the ones found on TIE Fighters. Purely a support craft, the Tachys's role is to recover intelligence through reconnaissance, provide minor support for larger craft, and chase down fleeing ships.

WEAKNESSES

  • Lightly Armed: Because so much emphasis was placed on the engines, there wasn't much else to be down for the Tachys' weapon systems. Though it possess some turbolasers and warhead launchers, it's not capable of doing any serious damage when put up against armored targets.

DESCRIPTION

 

Though the Sith Empire prided itself on its array of large and powerful star destroyers and battlecruisers, ultimately most (if not all) were slow in terms of acceleration and cruising speed. There had been many a time where a smaller, and vastly speedier, vessel had outpaced the larger Imperial cruisers and disappeared into the sunset.

 

The architects of the Empire's armada realized that, for better or worse, the Sith's fleet was exceedingly top heavy. So they designed an array of smaller vessels to mend this error.

 

The first of which was the Tachys-class Pursuit Corvette, named after the Tionese word for swift.

 

Sleek, speedy, and highly maneuverable. The Tachys could keep pace with most of the run-of-the-mill brigands until reinforcements arrived, or the Tachys was able to take them down on its own. Beyond its role as a patrol ship, theTachys found itself sitting alongside larger and more heavily armed warships in battle as a support ship and fighter screen.

Sensor Dampener

 

Same as the other submissions.

 

 

Overall (by looking at the spread sheet), this needs to drop around 4 ratings at its current production level.

Also fluff again.

 

And I changed:

  • Defense to Low
  • Speed to Moderate
  • Maneuverability to Moderate

Adjustments look solid.

 

Reinforced Hull

 

Given that the defense rating is now low, I think it'd be best to remove this. Alternatively, we can keep the reinforced hull, and then make the shields exceptionally weak to keep it roughly at a "low" defense rating.
