Following the cowardly Destruction of Imperial I Death Star, Imperial commerce raiders and privateers has become as big a problem for the so called "New Republic" as Rebel privateers and starfighter raids had been for the Galactic Empire. One of the most effective ships used by Imperial forces in this period is the Vibre Class Assault Cruiser, designed specifically for privateering and introduced shortly before Mon Mothma's resignations as Chief of State. The Vibre typically uses its stealth equipment to sneak within strike range of larger Rebel capital ships, then pounds the prize with ion cannons and uses cutting lasers to open the other ship's hull. A squadron of Zero-G spacetroopers is then disgorged into the larger ship. They will then within minutes take control of it.
