ADVANCED SYSTEMS
Strengths:
  • Comfortable: Designed to be run by a small crew and support a small strike team, the Ambition-class corvette has enough cargo space to hold several months of consumables as well as decent living quarters and small weapons firing range
  • Fast Patrol Craft: One of MandalMotors' faster corvettes, the Ambition-class was designed to quickly intercept pirates, raiders, and other small capital ships as a response ship.
  • Annoying: As a scout ship it is also fast enough and well armed enough to keep a larger foe busy until help arrives
Weaknesses:
  • Master of None: The Ambition-class corvette was designed as an "all-rounder" being able to pick off fighters and harass capital ships, but not both at the same time. Capital ships with hangars of starfighters are hard counters to the Ambition-class in a one-on-one fight
  • Exposed Bridge: While the Ambition-class has two command bridges, the main bridge is slightly raised and exposed, providing a target for enemy fighters to exploit.
Description: With a tightening of security within their boarders and a lack of up to date small capital ships, the Mandalorian Empire commissioned MandalMotors to develop a fast corvette capable of spending long periods of time in space with limited contact with others. Enter the Ambition-class corvette. Based off of several older designs found in the databanks of House Skirata's ancient ships, the Ambition follows a similar philosophy to the Raider-class corvette of the ancient Imperial Era. While its weapons primarily focus on an anti-starfighter role, its powerful turbolasers make it a strong contender when fighting similarly sized capital ships while its speed and small, thin profile provide a difficult target for larger capital ships to hit. Designed with comfortable crew quarters and enough space to hold a medium sized platoon of soldiers, making it a decent troop transport as well. While a full crew is preferred, the automated point defense system and advanced navigation computers allow for the ship to be flown with a much smaller crew than one would assume possible for a ship of this size. Fast and capable, the Ambition has become a staple of system defense.

Hangar: Very Low: 2 Starfighters/Shuttles
From the starship template:

Hangar: (Please provide the amount of fighters this submission can hold in it's hangar by count of Squadrons, which hold 12 average Starfighters. The higher your squadron count, the lower your Armament and number of advanced systems should be. )
  • 100 Meters: [None: - | Very Low: - | Low: - | Average: 0 | Moderate: - | High: - | Very High: 1 | Extreme: 2]
  • 200 Meters: [None: - | Very Low: - | Low: 0 | Average: 1 | Moderate: - | High: 2 | Very High: 3 | Extreme: 4]
Two points from here.
1) We list starfighters by squadrons, not individual ships. I don't see a issue with this housing a couple of non-combat shuttles. This is potentially an issue with starfighters though, because starfighters themselves are partially balanced by their squadron count as well (In other words, really high-end fighters with the "None:1 ship" squadron count. Please remove the reference to starfighters here, or alternatively, increase the rating so that it can carry a squadron of starfighters.

2) "Low: 0" is technically the lowest rating you can get here in terms of balancing, as we can't have a rating that goes beyond zero, if that makes sense (there isn't such a thing as negative starfighter squadrons). This means that this ship is one rating too high. As always, feel free to balance for that by lowering a rating, production size, or adding a significant weakness.

I don't follow this. If a ship has a large portion of weapons focused on fighting starfighters, how would its remaining armament have enough overall power to be a significant threat to fighting other corvettes? Is this more a jack of all trade ships, with a roughly equal focus on fighting everything?

Hope that answers your second question.
