A standard Mark 1 corvette of the Galactic Patrol with open gunports.
Using the Bergenholm inertialess drive Galactic Patrol vessels can transverse several light years in minutes.
The limiting factor being the resistance of the interstellar medium causing drag on the ship. By streamlining the hull into a teardrop shape as well as placing it's weapons internally with covered gun ports, it's velocity is significantly increased
Very fast, lightly armed and armored.
Special docking cradles are normally needed to land due to the teardrop shape of the hull.
But it can also land tail down into soft earth or water.
