Description: With the Yuuzhan Vong forcing the New Republic into retreat across the galaxy, the shipyards were forced into overdrive to supply the vessels the Republic needed to withstand this assault. The Coral Buster is the result of an unprecidented alliance between all of the Republic's shipyards, a small fast capital vessel taking advantage of the best technology that the Republic has to offer. Featuring many Mon Calimari design features, the Coral Buster also has some new weapons, computers and sensors designed by SoroSuub, the Roche Hive and many other members of the Republic, making this one of the most high tech vessels ever constructed. The Coral Buster exists for one purpose, to combat the Vong, and uses projectile based weaponry for this purpose, and although this means that the Coral Buster needs to be resupplied more often than conventional vessels, these weapons do have large magazines, and the ship has a large cargo facility if resupply is not certain. The Coral Buster design is very powerful for a vessel its size, and has already proven its worth in combat, but the sheer expence of this class means that supplies of this vessel will always be more limited than the demands for its use.
