Echani Confederation

The Penumbra-class Assault Frigate was the last "modern" warship built by the Echani Confederation before the rise of Empire. First fielded around 35 BBY they were Very agile and well armed craft, relying more on on its armor then its shields for defense. Its Agrinium plated armor absorbed and dispersed most of the energy that contacted it allowing it to operate with its shields down for extended periods of time.

As of the coming of the Galactic Civil war however turbolasers and Ion Cannons more then compensated up for the armor. When the Empire came into power they allowed a number of Penumbra's to remain in service with the Echani as escort and patrol ships. Once proud warships had been relegated to convoy escort duty by the tyrannical empire.
