GTFf Saphah


Description:

Derelict Tech Room Description

A new class of Frigate based upon the NTF's Iceni design and built by GTVI, the Saphah retains the heavy armour of it's forebear, coupled with a modified turret loadout that affords better protection against fighter and bomber attack than the Iceni had without sacrificing anti-capital ship punch. The consequence of this is slightly reduced armour and speed compared to the Iceni, but the Saphah remains a powerful vessel. Rumours that major security breaches during the NTF conflict that led to the Iceni's escape were engineered in order to gather data on the vessel for Project Saphah have been strenuously denied by the heads of GTVI.

The GTFf Saphah is a reskin and table hack of the Iceni. Unlike the Hydra however the Saphah is considerably more involved table-wise, and makes fairly large adjustments to the Iceni's armament, rationalizing the layout. It is an anti-capital corvette, in essence, well-equipped to take on enemy cruisers or corvettes, and able to give hostile destroyers serious problems. Two Saphahs appeared in Derelict, but only one was named, the GTA Cypher.


The second Saphah that appeared in Derelict was called the Enigma, and was apparently part of a GTVI conspiracy. The motives of this rogue faction are not known, but they are expected to be explored further in Blackwater Operations. It is to be noted that the Enigma was somehow cloaked from sensors.
