The corvette has fallen from standard use with most faction fleets in recent years however the category is known for its speed and maneuverability as well as its simplicity making it a common site in civil sectors as well as popular among the criminal elements in particular contra runners; those who specialize in moving small quantities of high value goods through any conditions. The corvette is also generally very small and coupled with its speed and maneuverability this makes it a very hard target to hit at range however it also lacks sufficient supply to operate much in the way of modules and weapons so its limited to scouting operations when it comes to martial uses.
The below factors are applied to component base stats e.g. with a factor of 25% a base stat of 4 would be an effective value of 1. Update to follow once ships are fully developed.
With a single fire control module the corvette does not benefit from weapon quarters; in general the category is to small to support drones and coupled with limited modification options the ships flexibility is greatly reduced however its massive bonus to thrust and torque again due to its small size allows it to go where other ships cannot.
The corvette is also very simple to use and highly experienced pilots who have large reserves of concentration can equip complex modules capable of crippling enemy vessels, stabilizing damaged allies or nullifying the effects of dark weapons.
