Corvettes are small ships for patrol and escort duties.
VCant Shipyards now build a class of low-cost ship. Based on Revelations-class design, every EL-Class corvette start with one fast-fire omnidirectional laser @L2+, one laser collimator @L1 and some useble items - and it's more than enough for first systems
Best missions are escort a convoy, patrol the space and kill every fighter and gunship with its omni-laser. Tested also as missileship. Cargo it's again 150t as the original Revelations - big enough to collect items to resell. Speed and manovrability are good for a corvette. Every Captain can improve his ship as he wishes, depending by the role assigned to the ship.
