Basic Description

The Sabre class starship is one of the earlier attempts at a purpose built escort. The result was actually better than had been intended, and was reclassified as a destroyer, due to her ability to act independently of the fleet.

Principly a fleet escort vessel designed to operate on the outer fringes of the main body, and snap up enemy fighters and gun-boats, and support the larger ships in their role in attacking the bigger ships.

This class is also found acting as part of the border patrol service, due to its ability to act as an interceptor, and cheaper to crew than a Steamrunner, Insignia or a Defiant.
