Despite the Alliance Patrol and Enforcement Cutter's friendly sounding moniker of "Cutter", the APEC is in fact a gunship. It is made as a fast patrol vessel, with enough capacity to confiscate illegal cargo. It is fast, heavily armed and armored, and is almost always dispatched in groups of two or three. Any smart smuggler will have to stop and prepare to be boarded in the presence of these craft. Like the Alliance Short Range Enforcement Vessel, the APEC is capable of longer missions, but its small crew space makes it somewhat uncomfortable for extended missions. Instead, it is most often deployed from Crete-class Carrier.[1]

A number of APECs took part in the Universe battle against the Reaver fleet.[2]
