The small Tracker-class surveillance vessel was WarShip, designed to ply trade routes and observe in-system communications. At the size of a Corvette, is not designed to stand up to a determined assault, mounting only the most minimal of deterrents and being considered a WarShip solely by virtue of being designed with a Compact Kearny-Fuchida Drive.
In order to accomplish its mission, the Tracker was designed to look innocuous, nearly indistinguishable from contemporary civilian JumpShips. Further, the Tracker was also designed to able to mount paneling to specialized hard points, allowing the ship to alter its appearance both by eye and by contemporary sensor suites. The altered ship signature, combined with an easily adjusted identification beacon, allowed a Tracker aliases with which it could hide among civilian vessels.
Despite the Tracker's usefulness, the design became obsolete by the early 2500s due to better sensor suites and also exposure to Tracker tactics. The final missions for the Tracker involved anti-pirate "Q-Ship" operations during the Reunification War, especially on the Taurian front.
The Tracker is very poorly armed. The Tracker's armament includes 2 Barracuda Missile Systems, a pair of PPCs, and a single NL45, allowing the vessel to deter both capital vessels and AeroSpace Fighters. However, against any determined attack, the Tracker is severely under-gunned. It is quick though, compared with many naval elements, so escape is probably the best course of action for a cornered Tracker.
Despite its small size, the Tracker is able to carry a relatively large amount of cargo in accordance with its disguise as a cargo ship. It mounts 2 DropShip collars and a two cargo bays—one capable of transporting 4 small craft, the other 23,810.5 tons of cargo.
