PATROL SHIPS

Colonial Patrol ships often served double duty as Scout and Sentry ships. Some, like the Cerebus Class, were considered tough enough to do Escort work as well.

Cerebus Class Scout Ship
A long range recon and scout ship that carried two vipers for extra support. Capable of landing on a planet for survey work they also found good use as a rescue vessel for surface emergencies and sometimes did double duty as Escort Vessels. Never as numerous as the Daedalus Class scouts the Cerebus Class had a well earned reputation for toughness.

Daedalus Class Patrol/Scout Ship
A long range recon and scout ship. Capable of landing. Widely used in search and rescue work and as a general patrol ship in occupied and high traffic systems. The Daedalus Class is the smallest ‘regular’ warship in Colonial service and was quite numerous.
Two of the Heavy Torpedoes were slung underneath to increase the vessel’s firepower in high risk areas.
