Naslik Escort Carrier

The need for a dedicated carrier didn't become a reality for the Sshel'ath until their forces began encountering the larger cruisers and battleships of the more powerful Novon trade lords. Such ships could operate 72 fighters -- or more -- each, a number that inundated the Sshel'ath's own Skrehga Light Fighters.

Naslik Escort Carriers rip out the Nirte's missile racks to expand the existing hangar capacities. New hangar modules were developed for mounting between the ship's outer wing structures allowing for an additional flight of fighters to be based out of each. External fighter rails were also built into the upper and lower portion of the ship's wings to allow for quick deployment. Internal fighter capacity is also expanded.

Naslik Carriers saw extensive use before and after the Second Novon War and continue to be used into the modern period.
