    Default Imperial Raider class corvette

    So, Final Fantasy games has come out with this:

    The Raider class corvette

    I don't always like what FFG is doing, but for this one, I think they did pretty good. But it needs stats. For this, I think a tweaking of the old Imperial Customs Corvette would work out okay. So, for the rest of the old guard who might be still on here:

    Craft: Rendili StarDrive’s Light Corvette
    Alignment: Empire
    Era: Rise of the Empire
    Type: Imperial anti-starfighter escort
    Scale: Captial
    Length: 150 meters
    Skill: Space transports: light corvette
    Crew: 52, gunners: 8, skeleton: 18/+10
    Crew Skill: Space transports 5D, starship gunnery
    5D+2, starship shields 5D+1
    Passengers: 20
    Cargo Capacity: 500 metric tons
    Consumables: 2 months
    Cost: Not available for sale
    Hyperdrive Multiplier: x2
    Hyperdrive Backup: x8
    Nav Computer: Yes
    Maneuverability: 2D
    Space: 8
    Atmosphere: 365; 1,050 km/h
    Hull: 4D+1
    Shields: 3D
    Sensors:
    Passive: 30/1D
    Scan: 60/2D
    Search: 90/4D
    Focus: 4/4D+1
    Weapons:

    6 Duel Heavy Laser Cannons
    Fire Arc: 3 Front/Left, 3 Front/Right
    Crew: 1
    Scale: Starfighter
    Skill: Starship gunnery
    Fire Control: 2D
    Space Range: 3-15/35/75
    Atmosphere Range: 300-1.5/3.5/7.5 km
    Damage: 4D

    2 Medium Ion Cannons
    Fire Arc: 1 left, 1 right
    Crew: 1
    Scale: Starfighter
    Skill: Starship gunnery
    Fire Control: 3D
    Space Range: 1-3/7/36
    Atmosphere Range: 100-300/700/3.6 km
    Damage: 3D

    Hanger: 2 TIE fighters

    Most of this is exactly the same as the Imperial Custom's Corvette from GG6:Tramp Freighters. I just shrank the size to 150 meters, added some ion cannons (both mentioned in the background of the ship) and added a hanger for two TIEs. That isn't mentioned, but it looks like some sort of hanger is on the bottom of the ship, though that part can't be seen directly, and the background does say this ship was used as a support ship to a TIE advanced, so it makes sense that they would have a hanger for work to be done on it.

    Anyway, if anyone wishes, please let me know what you think, thanks.

    I've seen a few renditions of this vessel over the last couple of days. One of the things I'm thinking is that FFG released this to be an Imperial Equivalent of the Corellian Corvette for their game. I'm wondering if this shouldn't be a modified capital class ships with some point-defense starfighter scale weaponry rather than a starfighter scale vessel. Also, I would expect it to have some limited tractor beam capability.

    Interesting idea on the stats. As cheshire mentioned, I think it'll probably be Capital scale. Difficult to say, for certain, until more information is released. But I think it'll be a two section, destroy both before the ship is considered defeated, so that would be the same as the Corellian Covette.

    The lasers and ion cannons will probably be pretty accurate, and the inclusion of the hangar capacity is a neat idea that seems to fit with the little blurb the FFG has released. Hopefully they'll be releasing more pics of the cards soon so we can see how durable the thing is.
    Try not. Do or do not, there is no try.

    I edited the first post to change this to capital scale, and bumped down the hull a bit of bring in line with the corvette.

    I also changed the firing arcs of the weapons to match up more with what is shown on the pictures about the weapon arcs. And I changed the weapons to starfighter scale to better fit the mission as well.
