Development Thread: NA

Model: Nebula-class Corvette
Affiliation: Mandalorian Navy, Hyperion Security, Restricted Private Sales,
Modularity: None
Production: Mass Production
Material: Alusteel, Durasteel, Duraplast, and other common construction materials,

Designed from the ground up with the goal of getting the damage output of a medium frigate at the lowest price, the Nebula-class Corvette began as a compromise. Developed at a time when Mandal Hypernautics was struggling to obtain large quantities of raw metals, the Nebula was downgraded from a frigate to a corvette early in the design process as a way to conserve resources and cut costs. The next corner cut in the production of this starship was in the chosen armament. Attempting to cut down on expensive turbolaser components and struggling to obtain a constant supply of Tibanna gas, the decision was made to substitute a number of the originally conceived turbolasers and quad laser turrets with cheaper mass-driver cannons.

Struggling to cram the weapons and secondary components of the original frigate design into the body of a corvette, the engineers abandoned the original concept of a small hanger built into the frigate and supplemented the hanger space with secondary sensor systems and an improved cargo bay. The backup hyperdrive was another casualty of the design process, but in the end the Mandal Hypernautics engineers had created one of the most durable and well armed starships in its weight class. And on a budget.

The Nebula-class Corvette remains a cheep and affordable corvette that can easily be purchased in large quantities by those with the finances to do so, yet is capable of holding its own against larger and more expensive warships due to its rugged and utilitarian design.

While I like the specific mentions of cutting corners in the ship's production, I have to note that the ship is not going to able to readily hold its own against larger vessels precisely because of the corner cutting. There's no reconciling the idea of a cheap ship with a powerful one.

That said, the numbers all check out and it looks good otherwise. Keep that in mind and this has my approval.

Approved, pending secondary approval.
