Cortez

Cortez class Special Operations Corvette
(Note- This is the Operative's ship from the movie Serenity, she is described in the Six-Shooters and Spaceships book. As per usual, her design is flawed with no missile launchers and other errors. In the book she is listed as the Victoria class, I wanted something more military sounding, since her stated purpose is the stealthy transport of special forces troops. I started with the stats from Six-Shooters and Spaceships and went from there. Her design is still somewhat poor, she has no defensive cannons like the Orca, but the Cortez is not intended to engage in stand up battle.)

The Cortez class Special Operations Corvette is intended to provide fast transport of elite special forces troops to trouble spots. They are often criticized as one of the most serious cases of military overspending in the Alliance, since what is basically a troop transport is the most expensive (per ton) vessel in the 'Verse. The Cortez has a heavy missile armament which can be used for surface bombardment and their dropships can deploy all her troops in a single wave.

*I gave the Cortez a 2 step bonus, making this a Major asset. I felt this was reasonable for what is probably the most advanced ship in the 'Verse. Note that these plasma guns are my modified stats ship weapons. They are base damage d6, but have a 3 step bonus as x10 Newtech weapons
