Hotspur-class

Hotspur-class Escort
Tech Level: 12

An advanced, high-defense escort ship, the Hotspur mounts very heavy defenses – and only a relatively light offensive capability. This means even even well-equipped pirates or raiders will struggle against a Hotspur, but that the ship is of only marginal value against dedicated warships. The ship was always intended as a merchant convoy escort, rather than a combat vessel, and within this niche the Hotspur is more than capable of holding its own.

Crew: Captain, pilot, navigator, 2 engineers, 5 gunners, 2 small craft crew and 8 Marines.
