The Corona-class Frigate is a new incarnation of the venerable Nebulon class of frigates that sees use in the navies of the Galactic Empire and the New Republic. The hull is slightly longer than a Nebulon-B2 Frigate, yet shorter than the Nebulon-B.
With the armament mounted on the hull, it is a match in firepower with the original Nebulon-B, and the much improved shielding and hull strength gives it an advantage in battle even over the better-armed Nebulon-B2. This vessel's high level of automation allows it to function at high efficiency with three quarters the crew of the other Nebulon frigates. The vessel's speed is also on a par with the fastest capital ships in the fleet.
