The Ijaat-class has a rather interesting design to it, looking like a cross between a drop ship and some kind of specialized missile destroyer from afar. In reality, it's design is adopted from Republic and Sith ship wreckage found on Taris, specifically the escape pod systems, giving the ship a very disjointed feel. Some parts are very clearly synthesized from Republic designs, others more commercial ship designs, others very clearly Sith as the designers of Clan Ordo pursued modularity and ease of repair voraciously. Each of the three bays per side holds up to ten pods and the ship features nine tri-heavy laser cannon arrays on the top, with two single barrel variants on the front. Although the picture depicts the vessel in black, this black paint generally begins to burn off as the ship travels through hyperspace, revealing the bare durasteel beneath.
Due to the relatively young ship construction capabilities of Ordo, the Ijaat-class is both considered a test and a stopgap as the planet ramps up production. With no real need or desire to construct massive capital ships, this vessel is designed to fill a lot of roles that such ships play at once with a relatively small frame and good maneuvering capabilities; generally paired with the Gra'tua-class Destroyer vessel also produced on Ordo.
