VII. Armor:

Full nuclear and chemical protection, immunity from hand fired solids and energy beams, shrapnel and other fragments. Limited protection from heavier weaponry, adequate up to 20mm autocannon shells or equivalent.

VIII. Development:

The Rabbit reconnaissance shuttle was so named due to its agility and speed. Due to their small size and speed, these shuttles saw frequent use aboard Oberth-class destroyers to provide reconnaissance capabilities within deep space and within battle zones cluttered with potentially-deadly debris. They also provided passenger shuttling services for the destroyers, ARMD platforms and SDF-1.
