The Kraken-class Gunship was designed shortly after the out-break of the Sethas-Po'leks Wars of Aggression as a means to replace older designs and to provide a better-equipped weapons platform for space combat to support various mission profiles. Its long-range capabilities has ensured it a lasting post within the Federal Fleet as a long-range escort.

The Kraken-class Gunship is designed with range in mind; equipped with specialized fuel-saving engines and able to be further supplied with exterior drop fuel tanks under the main fuselage if need be. In addition to the fuel, the gunship is provided with a small refresher, three beds for a crew rotation on long flights, and a large food supply. While very cramped inside the Gunship with just enough room to squueze by each other, the ship does provide the resources to accomplish long-range missions.

"For all the weaponry advancements and ability of the Kraken, the Gunship only has an decent array of communications. Despite this, the sensors and targeting systems are of respectable nature, providing the Gunship with excellent targeting abilities during the heat of combat. However, mobility--and in specific the ability for the Kraken to perform rotation maneuvers at combat speeds---is what provides the Gunship it's true power."
