The SCv Moloch was the only line of Shivan corvettes ever encountered during the Second Shivan Incursion. The Moloch is known for being the only corvette-type vessel to have a fighterbay. This feature brings with it a possible set of tactical advantages for the Moloch, as it is capable of deploying fighters and bombers to defend or attack enemies should reinforcements be unavailable, or otherwise deploy its fighterbay complement to assist other friendly vessels. However, the Moloch is deficient in terms of its own attacking power, with only three light beam cannons to combat other warships. Its anti-fighter and bomber armaments leave much to be desired, as the Moloch lacks any anti-fighter beams, instead mounting several fighter suppression missile turrets and flak cannons to compensate.

FS2 Tech Room Description
Only one class of Shivan ship is classified as a corvette - the SCv Moloch class. Though they're physically as large as the GTCv Deimos class, Molochs do not seem to pack the same punch. They are far more deadly than any Shivan cruisers, however.
In Hebrew, Moloch is most commonly associated with sacrifice.
Moloch is a form of the ancient Carthagian god Baal, named moloch-baal. This god was depicted as a winged taurus with a fire-breathing mouth in which men were thrown in to be sacrificed. The Bible then demonized moloch baal: Possibly the golden taurus the Hebrews were worshiping when Moses came down from the Sinai Mount was referred to this deity.
