Taking advantage of their modular design platforms, CEC swapped out most of the CR-7's anti-aircraft weaponry for increased hangar capacity, the ship's larger hanger and extendible docking tubes allowed the ship to support a complement of 6 star-fighters and a shuttle. While the CR-7 was a more conventional attack corvette like the Drexl-class or the Neptune-class and made use of its heavy firepower to support larger capital ships by warding off fighters, the CR-J was meant to serve a different role altogether. The CR-J was primarily meant as a rescue craft. Using its speed and maneuverability to slip into the heat of battle, the corvette would drop anchor and dispatch its shuttle and fighter complement. The fighters provided support to the shuttle as it would follow rescue beacons to pick up pilots who had gone EV and return to the corvette. The moment the rescue op was complete the ship would jump out. But if required the ship could also be used as a conventional attack-corvette, using its fighter complement to ward off fighters from allied ships in place of the anti-aircraft weaponry it does not posses. It can be crewed with a minimum of 3 bridge crew members, but it functions at its best when manned by a crew of 32 men including a ship commander, gunnery crews, bridge crew, and mechanics. Pilots for the fighters and shuttle add a further 8 members to the crew. LEGALITYRestricted.
