The Somme Class 'surface defense escort' is equivalent to the modern main battle tank, though it comes with some added features that make it far more versatile.
It's main gun is a torpedo launcher, giving it considerable punch right out of the gate. Several phaser arrays supplement this firepower.
Most systems come with considerable redundancy. Teleporter arrays on the front sides and rear top/bottom work in defense and offense. The front top and rear bottom hull feature a tractor beam for towing. Optical systems and sensor strips surround the craft providing the crew with full 360 degree vision and detection. With a pair of warp engines it can fly as a space craft and move at a limited warp speed.
Standard issue red stripes are proven to make it go faster.
