   Comments: The Shugek class battle carrier has recently been placed on the active list, following the classes final testing and acceptance by the Admiralty. Carring six Kakalikhu class battle riders and two hundred heavy fighters, this battle squadron presents a significant threat to any enemy battle squadron. Most significant is this classes ability to move with all but the longest jumping Imperial fleets; it's jump-4 makes the Shugek class a very responsive and potent threat.
    With tensions increasing in the Spinward Marches region, it is possible that this class will see combat sooner than would otherwise be expected.
