The Manta class corvette is a ship class that  appeared in the fleet shortly after the first Sabor War and was produced by Neosho Designs. It was seen that an even smaller and more maneuverable ship than a frigate was needed to defend supply convoys as well as destroyers, troop carriers, and landing craft, and that could safely navigate between the ship formations.

 

The Corvettes proved themselves most valuable as advanced scouts and relay craft in the Second Sabor War. While small compared to other ships in the fleet, the Corvettes could pack a punch when working together in numbers. Due to their successes, the Manta class are still in service with the fleet throughout the empire.
