Initially, the ships of the Foray-Class were commissioned to help the Republic Navy expand its reach. With the Navy charged with sealing off space against The Mandalorians in The Outer Rim, it needs every ship it could procure to fill gaps in the cordon.
Soon after the first ships enter service, The Mandalorians invade the Republic in force- and the principle mission of the 155-meter-long Foray-Class Blockade Runner changes from protection to interdiction. The nimble Vehicles prove the best answer the Republic has for The Mandalorian fleets protecting their new conquests. Blockaders turned Blockade Runners, Foray-Class ships deliver relief to Republic citizens and resistance movements in occupied space. They perform the same mission later against their own former compatriots in the Jedi Civil War.

The Foray-Class Blockade Runner's design helps facilitate exploration, expansion, and deep-space defense of Republic assets. As a Standard Action, a Foray-Class Blockade Runner can forgo all attacks to provide Tactical Fire to all adjacent squares. All allied Starships gain a +5 bonus to Pilot checks made to resist being drawn into a Dogfight or to escape from a Dogfight while in this area.
