The Type 1 Galamlur (offensive patrolship, usually translated as attack cruiser) stands apart from virtually all other Vilani designs of the Interstellar Wars era. Also known as the Dingir class, it was designed as an emulation of the Terran Ships of the Line at the behest of the remarkable Diikagkarunii (Provincial Governor) Sharik Yangila. The design itself was an interesting combination of Terran and Vilani design philosophies. The most striking feature was the spinal particle accelerator (a weapon found on very few Vilani designs), along with the extended endurance (13 Terran weeks as against the Vilani standard of 4 weeks) and use of a fully closed loop life support system (copied from ancient pre-jump Vilani sublight designs). All of these features were inspired by the Terran Ships of the Line, while the class still retained the classic Vilani blocky rounded hull form, the lower level of automation (forced by the nature of the Vilani caste system), the substantial missile battery (though much lighter than traditional Vilani designs), and the extensive ECM suite. Unusually for Vilani warships, the members of the class were assigned individual names following the Terran pattern, taking their names from Vilani worlds in the Kushuggi (Solomani Rim) sector.

Though the class represented a very interesting experiment, it was not a fully "mature" design, having several weaknesses (the poor sandcaster battery, relatively low powered spinal mount, the use of multiple low powered lasers linked into "batteries" etc). Many later naval architects have speculated on the likely evolution of the type had the Vilani preserved with its development. The type 1 was replaced with the much improved type 1a during the 4th War, but further development was abandoned with the fall of Sharik Yangila. However the Type 1a continued to be produced in large numbers and examples served with the Kushuggi provincial fleet until its final defeat during the 9th War.
