The Arunta class destroyers are another old Terran design. Designed as replacements for the Terran Ardent class vessels construction was stopped when the requirements for destroyers to have a minimum jump-4 capability became standard. They are still found in second line and client state forces where the jump-3 drive is not an issue.
