Hishkok Missile Destroyer
Description:

A rushed variant of the Hishoch Warship, the Hishkok was built during the Bintari/T'shann War when the tide of battle looked especially grim for the embattled Bintari. Several Hishoch's still under construction had their primary laser armaments ripped out, replacing them with missile launchers and rotary magazines. The few ships refitted to this model served valiantly in the final battle at Bintarus, but all were destroyed, one by a chain reaction in the forward missile magazines. In the years since some Hishkoks have been produced, but they always serve in a fleet support role.

For scenarios set from 2014-2017, delete the primary defense launcher; this was a later addition to the hull following the invention of that rack. The Hishoch previously mounted a light x-ray laser in the launcher's place, but this was not standard for the Hishkok Missile Destroyer and was never mounted on the hull.

The name is a homage to Alfred Hitchcock.
