|The GVCv Sobek|
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.
The Sobek is a fine ship in most regards, but it doesn't quite hold up to its sister class, the Deimos. With more emphasis on forward weaponry it has an advantage offensively, but anything attacking it from behind will have an easy time scoring hits. Granted, its excellent anti-fighter defenses mean nothing smaller than a cruiser can approach from behind, but even a Cain can inflict moderate damage if it gets the drop on the Sobek.
