Tartan-class Patrol Cruiser
This Tartan - Class Patrol Cruiser is based on its depiction in Star Wars: Empire at War. In said game the Tartan was an excellent anti-squadron corvette. Compared to the CR-90 it had greater firepower, but lacked its speed. Here the Tartan cruiser has increased firepower in the front arc as well as anti-squadron lasers, but can only reach speed 3. It also trades out a support team upgrade for a weapons team upgrade. Tartans should stick close to large ships to neutralize bombing runs and support fighter squads. At the very least they can be used to soak up some extra damage as larger ships attempt to engage your Star Destroyers.
