Ion Boat

Kuat Drive Yard's Ion Boat was designed in order to provide the Empire with
an armed light freighter that would be capable of defending itself in a
combat situation. The designers also intended to develop it so that the
Imperial Navy would begin deploying them as patrol or escort vessels by
arming them with ten ion cannons allowing it to disable anything that may
decide to engage it. The Imperial Navy was not overly pleased with the
design, stating that lack of speed, maneuverability, and non ion based
weapons created a ship not worthy of combat. However, the Empire still
purchased the Ion Boat in limited numbers and assigned them to smaller
and low priority supply routes.
