Sheridan-class Scout/Intelligence Ship

Though expensive, this Scout is certainly designed for long range reconnaissance and Intelligence gathering duty. As is typical, the sensors, enhanced communication and EW equipment are what makes it so pricey. If stripped of this equipment it drops to near to the standard surplus Scout/Courier price, but is still a little more thanks to its radical stealth and emission cloaking.

The 100-ton Sheridan-class Scout Courier/Intelligence Vessel (TL12) is set up as an active duty Type S outfitted for Intelligence gathering duties. Its higher TL allows it enough extra space to carry Advanced Sensors, and Enhanced Communications Suite (For communications interception) and EW equipment. This leaves it with a cargo compartment on the third (lower) deck which can carry 3 dtons of stores.
