The Minelayer Corvette is a heavily armored corvette created by the Hiigarans.

Background Edit

Its design was a modified version of the Gunship. Most of the hull was taken up with minelaying and storage devices. It was so large that the rear part of the hull has been completely rebuilt in comparison to the Gunship. The engine array was split into two parts, between which the main body of the minelayer lies. This corvette is able to destroy enemy mines, which makes it an essential ship for defense of any battlegroup. The ship also mounts a Kinetic Gun for self-defense against minor attacks.

Trivia Edit

  • In early versions of the game the Minelayer Corvette was also armed with a single, bottom-mounted Vulcan Kinetic Autogun.
  • Anark Client shows that the Pulsar Gunship was designed as a minelayer ship: however, this configuration of ship was not included in the final game.[citation needed]
