Like its sister class, the Gryphon, the Stormcrow variant design sat in limbo for some time until Starfleet Intelligence resurrected it. Following the successful implementation of both versions of the runabout additional units were constructed for use with select bases.
Unlike the base class, the Stormcrow has a decidedly combat focus with additional weapons and hard-points on the wings for a variety of purposes. It can also carry 40 marines into combat situations performing the role of a light troop transport.
