The Saber is a medium 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 Saber is the Tier 3 Corvette hull of the Ripchee.
Overview & Strategy
The Saber is currently the only Tier 3 Corvette in the game. With a flag size of 12, large fleets can be formed around this ship. With the use of a cloaking device, it is possible for a Ripchee player to sneak other ships, up to and including Scare cruisers and Pride battleships past enemy defences for attack and invasion purposes. Such a tactic has no effective counters at this time, as the Cloak Detector module only works for two hours at a time.
Another use for the Saber is as a blockade runner; with 4 Medium general slots, it has a reasonable capacity for transporting troops, fuel or resources, and can be formed into sizable fleets. With Scout Engines equipped, only other Corvettes will be able to catch such a fleet, and with a Minesweeper equipped, enemy Minefields will not pose a threat either. With all this, the Ripchee player will be able to move resources to where they are needed quickly and safely.
