DESCRIPTION
Unlike its cousin, the CR90 corvette, the "Corellian Gunship" had minimal cargo space and almost no space for passengers or troops. These small ships were designed to be only two things: fast and deadly. Engines consumed nearly half of the gunship's interior space. What little room was left was used for deflector shield generators and weapons.

Armed with eight double turbolaser cannons, four concussion missile tubes, and six quad laser cannons, the Corellian gunship was effective against both larger capital ships as well as starfighters, though it was primarily used against the latter.

Originally developed for the Galactic Republic, it served primarily in the backwaters of the Empire when the Republic was reorganized as there was less call for a frigate designed to combat the CIS swarm-style of naval warfare. Many ships were stolen by the Alliance to Restore the Republic and private ventures alike.

With both speed and firepower, the only downside for use as a pirate vessel, for example, was it's reduced cargo capacity when compared to other CEC capital ships. Due to being mass produced for the war and their use by several factions during the years after the end of the Clone Wars, the DP-20 can be found across the Galaxy. Despite it's age, the ship still performs well so long as regular maintenance has been conducted and many factions strapped for credits have kept them in service rather than replacing them entirely.

LEGALITY
Restricted. DP-20 Frigates are classified as capital ships under Galactic law, and possess heavy weapons. As such, civilian owners will require extra licensing to operate one legally, and will receive increased scrutiny by authorities.

INTENT
Intent is to bring in a canon ship that was used extensively by the Republic, less so by the Empire and more by the Alliance so would be found quite often in the Galaxy despite it's age.

RESTRICTIONS
DP-20 Frigates are large capital ships with heavy weapons, and capital ships cannot be owned or operated by individual characters. They may be acquired as faction assets, however, or by a group of at least 4 individual characters who work together regularly.
