The Joberg class destroyer escort was originally designed in 983, just before the outbreak of the Solomani Rim War. Intended as a general purpose patrol vessel, it lacks the performance to stand in battle and is generally confined to operating in relatively secure rear areas. The class is named for notable mountains found on Imperial worlds.

The design requirements called for the Joberg to be capable of operating within an atmosphere. Consquently the class uses a low cost flatterned sphere configuration, with the hull armoured against most routine threats and featuring rudimentry control surfaces aft. The classes primary armarment is its two batteries of twin missile turrets, supplimented by lasers and defensive sandcasters. The additional four staterooms are used for a wide variety of purposes: carrying important passengers, accommodating a small commando team, the confinment of prisioners etc.

The sole variant is the Klarin class operated by the Luriani Cultural Association Cutter Service. The LCA operates 26 Klarin's to stiffen the more numerous small craft it uses to provide in-system security for the worlds that contract with it to provide governmental services. The Klarin replaces the two ships boats with two 20 ton launches and uses the additional space to provide quarters for 10 ships troops.
