Feiwoi' Gunship

design by Pete Grey

A relatively new class first introduced in 1109 Imperial, it existed in considerable numbers by the time of the Imperial Civil War. It was used heavily as a spearhead and support ship for Ihatei stormgroups, and was a bane to Denebian SDBs and gunships. Feiwoi' is the Aslan equivalent for the Terran term "I raise you" or "top this." The ship is little more than an Aslan copy of the Gazelle-class sloop, but as its name implies, its bigger, faster and meaner upgrade. It has one centimeter more armor, 6-G, four remote 360 MJ laser barbettes. On the down side it has only J-3, less endurance and no provision for a small craft.

Those were of little comfort to the Domain of Deneb, who lost more than a few of its Gazelles, Fierys and Patrol Cruisers to this class. Historians credit the toughness of designs like the Feiwoi' and its sisters for being the main impetus in Norris cooptation strategy towards the Aslan: a naval war with these vessels would have been to costly.
