The Bernard-class Salvage and Rescue vessel was a small (1800 ton) ship designed for emergency rescue operations in space and on planetary surfaces. The cargo bay could be quickly converted to hold passengers, but it most often operated as a tug, and was provided with Magnetic grapplers that could pull most medium-sized vessels, up to 7,200 tons. The Bernard was a very durable ship that was meant to operate in hazardous areas. The hull was strengthened to resist minor collisions, and the interior was designed for maximum containment during a hull breach. They were used by the Alliance of Nations
