    The Discril-class Attack Cruiser is slowly being phased out of service with the Daupherm Planet States' military, due to the realization that this design is obsolete. During the Daupherm Planet States - Botor Enclave war, the Discril Attack Cruiser was the standard ship of the Daupherm Marines. This design existed at least some time between the 30 year period from the Daupherm-Botor war and the Battle of Yavin. Some of these ships have been mothballed for future upgrades, others scrapped, while several others have found their way onto the used arms market to be sold to less advanced star systems. It is known that pirates make use of this ship, such as the Retribution run by the pirate Evram Darkmere.
