''However, in a toe-to-toe duel with a [[GTCv Deimos|Deimos]], the Sobek will win, I've come to the conclusion that the Sobek is superior in capital ship combat, but much, much, much weaker in terms of anti-fighter ability. (I've seen a Deimos take out 20 more bomber wings, all other things being equal.) In fact, in a poll, the majority of people found the Deimos to be more effective overall, but the Sobek is obviously more effective in some circiumstances.''

|The GVCv Sobek|
FS2 Demo Tech Room Description
The Sobek was put into service after the destruction of Vasuda Prime. It was created to counter the more powerful Shivan Cruisers.
FS2 Tech Room Description
Design of the corvette class GVCv Sobek began in the dark days after the destruction of Vasuda Prime by the Shivans in the Great War. The Vasudan navy wanted a vessel that could single-handedly counter powerful Shivan cruisers and provide critical support to Vasudan destroyers in battles against Shivan capital ships. The Sobek class fills those requirements admirably. Bristling with almost two dozen turrets, these corvettes are a terror to all vessels of cruiser size and below, while presenting a dire threat even to ships far larger than themselves.
Sobek was an Egyptian god, a deification of crocodiles. He was worshiped to pacify the danger of crocodiles in the Nile River. He was said to be the symbol of strength and power in war times.
