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.
