Product Description

Another of the many variations on the ubiquitous Picti-class destroyer, the Decantae was designed to escort dedicated fighter-carrier vessels. The heavy (and bulky) fusion guns are removed in favor of much simpler (and smaller, and less power-hungry) graser turrets. Considerable re-juggling of internal arrangements allowed the shipbuilders to considerably expand the hangar bays and add additional machine shops and protected ammunition storage for the fighters. 

When on carrier-escort duties, these ships typically sortie with only half of their fighter bays filled. The theory is that they can service a few of the carrier's fighters when squadrons return to refuel and rearm; thus lightening the load on the larger vessel's limited ability to launch and land small craft. The additional grasers allow them to deal with enemy fighters and missiles, while additional power can be devoted to shields (and in emergencies, to place said shields between the carrier and the enemy). 

Decantae are also highly in demand for convoy escorts because of their additional fighter capacity; a typical escort element will consist of one Decantae, one Cornavii, and two Picti. The Decantae's additional fighters have been known to convince opponents that they are facing an all-Picti squadron, with a painful surprise when the Cornavii's Hellrails open up at twice fusion cannon ranges.
