Venture Class Corvette (Corvette Type 02)
The Venture class Corvette is the Confederation Navy's lightest capital ship in service, first entering the fleet in the early 2250's. The class can be considered halfway between that of a bomber and destroyer, not quite satisfying the needs of either role. These ships serve in many different roles over the years and are often used to escort convoys, long range scouting, guarding jump points, and even for decoy missions. Standard Venture class Corvettes carry a pair of heavy neutron cannons as their main weaponry, a pair of heavy defense lasers and two long range missile launchers.
