The Dar’ramaanla Vorpan, or 'Verdant Immortal,’ has been tucked away for years in Mandalorian archives. Rel Connory and a shipwright team designed the battlecruiser during the Alor’e Council years, but could never secure the needed resources. Only under Ra Viszla did those resources come into Mandalorian possession.
Visually, the design isn't the most Mandalorian thing around. It looks downright Mon Calamari in some lights, courtesy of Connory's long experience with Dac's cruisers. A near-black hull and blue-green accents give it a graceful, aquatic aspect.
In combat, though, nobody would ever mistake the Dar’ramaanla Vorpan for anything but brutal and proud. It will hit you at any range, and that hit will hurt. Cowards run from long-range octuple emplacements; the brave face resilient shields, heavy broadsides, and courtesy calls from basilisk riders. Boarders, meanwhile, discover there's nothing so troublesome as getting their attack ships or hangar beachheads torn apart by basilisk claws.
Suffice it to say that Connory has taken some flak from his fellow enemies of the Mandalorian Empire.
