The Skaelen-Har Hegemony Arsenal Data-Slate
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.
