Strait-class gunship

The Chechen Systems Longbow-class gunship was introduced to the Core Systems Republic Navy in 2463, as part of the Navy's Small Escort Vessel procurement program. Its primary competitor was the G.V. Nalley Corporation's Strait-class gunship, which failed to make the cut due in large part to GVNC's inflexibility to Naval revision requests. The Strait is a lighter, faster vessel compared to the Longbow, but its broad, short cross-section left more of the ship vulnerable to fire when approaching bow-on. Where the Strait has found acceptance is in the corporate-security market, with Sunward Shipping, Interstellar Resources, and even the Kanbei Cartel (under a rebranded identity) all utilizing the Strait as a fast policing craft and escort vehicle.
