Marauder Class Corvette
The Marauder corvette is one of those hidden gems that appear in comic books and games, an aggressive looking ship often used as more of a background prop. It looks like a smaller ship than it is; quite a bit larger than a Corellian corvette like the Tantive IV. Marauders are a common corvette available on the open market, and occasionally integrated into space navies, such as that of the Rebel Alliance. However, they are more commonly used by local governments, smugglers, and pirates.
This variant, the Sabertooth, is a pirate variant with an extra set of atmospheric engines, turbo-flux power boosters for temporary boosts to engines or weapons power, and an overhaul of the armament to include ion cannons.
