The Kuat Drive Yards Vigil-class corvette contained some weapons at the dorsal area of the ship, as well as a large dish. The command deck was flush with the hull near the main drive thrusters, providing a smaller profile. The corvettes mount three twin heavy turbolaser turrets on the dorsal hull, along with three twin light turbolaser turrets. Various laser cannons used in an anti-starfighter role are scattered around the hull.
Several Vigil-class corvettes were serviced at Naval Station Validusia. The corvettes patrol trade routes, act as battle group leaders in small fleets, and hunt pirates alone. They are also used as scoutcraft.
