A derivative of the Lambda-class family, the JV-7 was designed to correct some weaknesses in the original Lambda design. The craft boasted a higher top speed, and maneuverability was also improved. It had 20% more shield power and a significantly stronger hull than the Lambda-class.
The aft firing arc was covered by a dual turbolaser turret, making it extremely dangerous to pursue this ship. The JV-7 was also equipped with a pair of concussion missile launchers, like the related Sentinel-class landing craft.
