The Empire has fallen and a New Republic is born out of the conflict. But in the ashes of civil war, yet another life stirs...
An somewhat unusual Mon Calimari design the MC30 does away with many of the organic and aquatic themes of the larger vessels of the same manufacture in favor of a streamlined and stripped-down hull.
This very focused and unencumbered design makes the MC30 extremely fast for a ship of its size but does indeed leave it more vulnerable as armor plating is forgone in favor of that speed. As such, more of the superstructure is exposed than other Mon Calimari ships.
In addition to a modest compliment of defensive laser turrets, the MC30 is most noted for it's proton torpedo tubes that can fire a heavy salvo of torpedoes at surprising intervals. This feature allows it to bombard starships of starbases much larger than itself and inflict great damage, while using it's speed to get away before return fire can be concentrated.
In all, the ship was fielded less than other Mon Cal types but has proven highly effective on the battlefield.
