  • Heavy, long-range firepower
  • Heavy shielding/armor: can take as much punishment as ships twice its size
  • Capable of landing on planets
  • Small bow-on or astern target profile
  • Slower and less maneuverable than a typical escort frigate: its speed and maneuverability are more easily comparable to ships twice its size
  • Limited ammunition: can be a problem in prolonged firefights
  • Firepower consolidated in a single hardpoint: it is thus vulnerable to other corvettes and frigates capable of outrunning the main battery's traverse
  • Once the main turret is destroyed, a breach of the ammunition magazine will likely ensue, killing the ship along with it (unless the magazine is exhausted)
  • Once the forward armor is penetrated, a breach of the ammunition magazine will likely ensue, killing the ship along with it (unless the magazine is exhausted)
  • Easy to capture if a hull breach doesn't kill the ship: the internal space mostly gave way to the reactor and ammunition magazine, giving the ship limited space for crewmembers
Description: In the light of the Skor campaign, and also the Ison Corridor engagement over Indellian, Therapy Command realized that, while the recipe of a monitor could be applicable in a main battlefleet, the frame of a corvette was too small to enable the full capabilities of the role, so a new monitor, based on the ancient Hardcell frame, was commissioned. Like its predecessor, the Mustafar-class, the Skor-class is designed for one job: picking off enemy capital ships at long range with its main turret. The Skor features one retractable 420mm heavy long-range hypervelocity cannon turret in the forward section, designed specifically for allowing smaller ships to mount such heavy consolidation weapons after the old 380mm one was found to be unsuitable for use on such a small ship, forming the ship's main battery, with a humongous ammunition magazine underneath the turret. However, it is the only anti-capital ship weapon mounted onboard and thus falls prey to the classical weaknesses of the type: fast corvettes and frigates can close range and outrun the main battery's traverse and, from there, can destroy it, and also it is relatively easy to capture due to the low crew complement and the limited space for crewmembers. Finally, while the ship is capable of taking a couple hits from barrel consolidation weapons before the armor is penetrated, once it is penetrated in the forward section, it is likely that a chain reaction is triggered in the ammunition magazine and the ship is destroyed as a result.
