The Decerno Mk-2’s modular design enables a wide range of roles to be undertaken for the Glory of the God-Emperor and the reputation of your particular organization. It ships with a standard Hanson Cargo Module (Order No. 233-5989a) and it can be, convieniently, refitted with other modules to fit your particular needs. Of particular note is the Daedelus Armament Module (Order No. 233-5861c) rendering the Decerno Mk-2 with an assortment of payloads as well as delivery systems, lending diplomatic weight to stalemates in negotiation and easing territorial affirmment. The Decerno Mk-2 is powered by 2x1600 TWatt Anthony Thrusters and the Tarantula Maneuvering Thrusters Pack ensuring ease of control and grace of movement.”
The Skaelen-Har Hegemony phased out the armed first-generation Decernos and introduced the Mk-2s following Govenor Hax’s Sectorial Decree No. 15-840. The Decree was called The Amputation Act, by his political opponents, as it severly limited payload and armaments of ships not within the Imperial Navy or PDF - however, the wording of the decree only specified fixed armaments. As a direct consequence hereof, the Skaelen-Har manufactered the Mk-2s with optional payload in the form of readily installable weapon-modules, thereby circumventing both the decree as well as its pre-decessor in terms of allowable weaponry of civilian crafts.
