The Salvage Corvette is a corvette designed by the Taiidan Empire to capture enemy vessels

Background Edit

The ship was originally designed as a means of retrieving ship wreckage for mineral consumption (hence the name salvager), eventually served a new purpose. Taiidan scientists devised a way that used AI-driven decryption and viruses the Tiirshak could literally hack into an enemy ship, rendering its weapons and armor useless. Then, theoretically, the enemy ship could be towed back to a Carrier where assault teams would board the ship and crew it. The Tiirshak, based lightly on the corvette chassis used by other Taiidan vessels, could evade anti-strike craft weaponry to get close enough to perform this feat on almost any ship.

Trivia Edit

Bugs Edit

  • When capturing ships, the salvage corvette may latch onto a targeted ship at the wrong angle.
