This class is unlocked by default at the beginning of the game. The corvette receives a 25% discount on Sensors, Engines, and Repair Modules. This characteristic lends the corvette to roles as scout or support, although it can easily be used for light attack/interception roles.
The biggest shortcoming of the corvette is that it has much lower weaponry capability than its Destroyer counterpart and has comparatively low tonnage.
As engine and sensor technologies increase in weight (making it less feasible to mount them on combat ships), the corvette becomes necessary as a scout.
Attaching a corvette (with Engine Modules) to larger fleets will directly boost fleet Speed . Some players will use fleets of pure corvettes to move around the map extremely quickly, as the engine bonuses stack. This is known as "flocking." It is possible to achieve speeds of 30+ using this strategy.
Alternatively, the repair module bonus can be taken advantage of to provide an early unit able of withstanding enemy attack and charging in at the end with Kinetic weapons.
Early game it can take the role of transport because of the 1 extra compared to Transports, however it has not enough Tonnage for an engine module. Any Faction with Optimal Structure Trait, Corvette can take over the role the transport ship because it has enough to equip an engine.
