The '''Contract-class''' was the smallest fighter carrier built by the [[K'Nes Tor]] for the [[Tor Navy]], intended primarily for guarding cargo convoys through hostile territory.  It carried seven squadrons of [[:Category:Small Craft#Starfighters|starfighters]] (84 fighters total), although it only has 80 fighter launch tubes, assuming that at any given time there will be a few fighters down for repairs, refueling, rearming, etc.

The ''Loophole ''is powered by a standard [[Ion Drive|ion drive]].  As the Contract class was designed to escort cargo convoys along commercial and military hyperspace lanes using existing [[Jumpgate|jumpgates]], it was not equipped with a [[Gravity Drive|gravity drive]].

Designed to operate as a lone warship without support if necessarily, it is more heavily armed that a typical [[K'Nes]] fighter carrier. It carries a larger number of short- and mid-range weapons in turrent mounts, rather than focusing on large capital weapons in fixed mounts.

Designed to operate as a lone warship without support if necessarily, it is more heavily armed that a typical [[K'Nes]] fighter carrier.  It carries a larger number of short-range ([[Chemlaser]]s) and mid-range ([[Fusion Cannon]]s) weapons in omni-directional turret mounts, rather than focusing on large capital weapons in fixed mounts.  That said, it is equipped with two powerful fixed-mount [[Hellbore|Hellbore Cannons]] as its capital weapon system, as well as ten [[Lance Torpedo]]es launch tubes for long-range attacks.  It's defended with a point-defense network of forty [[Plasma Phalanx|plasma phalanx]] turrets.  As with most K'Nes ships, it's equipped with [[Stealth Suite|stealth suite]], but only a basic one (it needs to be ''noticed'' in order to deter attacks on cargo convoys!), although it may carry fighters with more advanced stealth systems.

===History===
   
After the [[Earth Federation|Federation]] defeat of the [[K'Nes Tor]] in the [[Second Vulthra War]], all ships of this class were destroyed, scuttled, or confiscated and dismantled by the [[Earth Federation]].  However one Contract-class, the ''Loophole,'' survived the war and [[K'Nes Occupation|Human Occupation]] when it was hijacked by former Tor Navy officer [[Soth|Gurrmew K'Laek K'Soth]] of the [[Gurrmew & Yeomurt LLP]] megacorp, and used to lead a guerrilla campaign against [[Earth Fleet]] in his home system of [[K'Laek]].  When the K'Nes declared independence after the [[Caal Invasion]] shattered the strength of the Federation, the ''Loophole'' became a powerful political symbol as the lone survivor not only of its class, but of the entire K'Nes Tor Navy.  Sadly, it was destroyed during the [[Ascension War]] in the Battle of [[Purrfang]], when it helped prevent a hostile takeover by [[Pirr Varrless]] by destroying the [[Horadrim]] [[Tunnel Drive|tunnel-drive]] warship supporting Varrless's coup attempt.
