Description: A rare, best-in-class vessel, the T5-Mantis is a Scaled back D5 with many bodies produced in advance the prohibitive cost of the patrol ship made the D5 rare. Years later KDY retooled the interior design and weapons to create a Light Freighter used internally for years Very few of them ever made to the general market those that did are still among the stars with proud owner. By employing three retractable weapon foils with independent power supplies, the Mantis is capable of safely utilizing armament intended for larger class vessels, as well as reducing its profile significantly in order to be packed tightly into carrier ships with a surprising number of other Mantis crafts.
