The Anvil Aerospace Carrack has been the vanguard of every UEE exploration effort in recent years. The ship features reinforced fuel tanks for long-duration flight, a highly advanced jump drive array and a dedicated computer core room that allows it to put the maximum processing power into jump charting operations. Originally a military exclusive, the Carrack is now available for civilian use as a pathfinder spacecraft. On-board accommodations allow for truly self-sufficient flight, including crew medical and repair facilities, and a mapping-oriented sensor suite capable of always charting a route home!
The 160 were the tip of the spear of the UEE Navy, not just a fighting force but highly specialized in deep space special operations. For most military encounters, by the time any Naval Squadron was called in, the 160 had most likely moved on. Battle strategy, recon, and forward operations were the bulk of the 160s duties.
