Teaser from Known Threats – 8

So, in case your players wants to try their luck in the Corporate Sector … I mean, if they’re brave, stupid or desperate that is. The CSA deploys these as law enforcement ships, even customs some times. These babies are hard punching and dangerous. I’d flee. They also have a missile cruiser refit, but I have not done that yet, but basically I’d replace the weapons with some buffed-up version of proton torpedoes or concussion missile.

  1. This might actually be better as a silhouette 6 ship. Depends on if one should consider the Nebulon-Bs (300 meters long) to be the lower end of silhouette 6 or the Corellian Corvettes (150 meters long) as the upper end of silhouette 5.

  2. That is a bit of a tough one… I think, because of the size and hull integrity it should remain a silhouette 5. It does have a lot of firepower, but any freighter worth its salt in going up against a ship like this might have an ECM jammer to reduce their silhouette anyways (its the first thing my PCs always try to build/scavenge/steal 🙂
