Light Horse-class

Light Horse-class SDB
Tech Level 11

The heaviest non-planetoid system defense craft built for Glira Divoni, the upcoming Light Horse-class SDB combines good acceleration (6-g) with heavy firepower (particle barbette and 4x plasma guns), heavy armor (11 points of crystaliron) and a 30-ton boarding craft. While it lacks the long endurance of the smaller SDBs, this can be extended by cargo transfer via the small craft bay, though this normally carries an advanced 30-ton boarding craft to assist the Marines in forcibly entering suspect or hostile spacecraft. Heavily reinforced hull and armored bulkheads around the most critical systems enable the Light Horse-class ships to stay in the fight longer than one might expect an SDB to last, and the repair drones and software help them fix damage even mid-fight.

Typical crew consists of 2 pilots, navigator, 1 engineer, 3 gunners, 2 small craft crew and 1 mechanic, as well as 8 Marines.
