Pathfinder (Individual Carrack-class WarShip)
As at November 3067 the Carrack-class transport Pathfinder was a WarShip within the Clan Nova Cat touman and as such was serving the Second Star League as the SLS Pathfinder. The Pathfinder was deployed with the Nova Cat merchant fleet.
While the Pathfinder is not noted as having survived the Jihad, it was clarified by one of the Line Developers that the Clan Nova Cat merchant caste ships, as non-combatant ships, should not have been listed in the first place, and that some at least survived.
|“||It is not a WarShip per say, so it is not included in the rolls of offensive weapons. Same with the Clan Merchant Carracks, they were removed because they should never had been included in the first place. But Clan Nova Cat does have some merchant Carracks left, even if they have no proper WarShips.
