Class Notes:
In the past the Shivva class (Tl:13) Patrol Frigate was a common sight along the frontiers of the consulate. Since the Fifth Frontier War the class was revised due to the heavy losses experienced. Following the Naval review of 1112 it was revised to TL 14 standards. The Shivva II class was produced. First produced in 1113 the class was re-designated a Patrol Corvette due to the functionality, size and capability. Many of the original Shivvas have been refitted and upgraded to the Shivva II specifications. The Shivva is still encountered in the backwater areas of the Consulate and client states. The Shivva II is the now the predominate class of military patrol vessel found regulating and protecting commerce in and in the surrounding space the Zhodani Consulate.

  • Fighters- The Fighter Section consists of six 10-ton Chanjitl light fighters. They are stored in the underbelly of the ship consistent with present Zhodani Naval Design Philosophy. The Pilots are house in a capsule like cockpit that transports the Pilot via a tubular access way to the awaiting fighter frame where the Cockpit-Capsule integrates with the frame and is launch for operations. The pilot is recovered the same way but in reverse. Much of the Maintenance is performed by the Engineer droids during EVAs in the fighter housings underneath the ship.
