The Hunter is a light and manoeuvrable hull. It's well-suited for the creation of different intelligence service ships. It can be used as an attack vessel as part of a larger fleet. In-Game Description

The Hunter is the Tier 2 Corvette hull of the Ripchee.

Overview & Strategy

The Hunter-class hull can be used to build medium corvettes for little cost. Compared to the Nuisance destroyer, the Hunter is both larger and less well-armed and armoured. However, it also has a lot more space for equipment, including a Medium General slot, allowing for a more balanced and capable ship all round.

As a Corvette, the Hunter is compatible with the Cloaking Module. With a Flag limit of six, the Ripchee player will quickly be able to assemble cloaked light attack groups of Hunters or Nuisances, or cloaked invasion fleets using Incisor frigates configured as troop transports. In the late game, the Saber corvette will be able to take over these duties with its higher Flag rating.
