Explorer class Scout Cruisers are a brand version of the 800t Broadsword Merc Cruiser. They
were more popular with corporations than the scout service but the government did own a few. The
ISS depended more heavily on the variations of the 1kdt Xboat tender, scouts and couriers. 
Lynx/ Chameleon producers, in Corridor, also have an 800-ton wedge design with the same stats
named the Pathfinder.
