The G'Karith-class Patrol Cruisers are capital ships in the Narn Armed Forces.


These ships are pack hunters in the Narn fleet, which are deployed in squadrons. With its weapon systems and fighter complements, the ship is an extremely effective system patrol craft. The ship coordinates and defends friendly fighters with its rapid-firing pulse cannons and specialized pulsar mine launchers. Most of the outer worlds and systems within the Narn Regime have at least one G'Karith watching over them. The G'Karith is a tactical cruiser which means it can only hold out against heavier ships for a short time.
