The Drachenhund-Class Corvette is the latest corvette design by the Volkswerft of the People’s Coalition and meant to replace the older Karhund-Class Corvette. When compared to the Rapier-Class Corvette employed by the Intersystem Alliance, the Drachenhund is intended to fill a more niche, antiship role compared to its more versatile corvette cousin. With a powerful axial laser and a small crew, the Drachenhund is designed to operate in groups to hunt down larger prey such as destroyers or even cruisers. In the hands of the Heimatwätcher the Drachenhund is often used in patrol rolls, employing its powerful axial laser to disable fleeing ships for larger ships to deal with or to destroy them outright. In either capacity, the Drachenhund is a fearsome predator.
