The Desert-class was a type of Culture Systems Vehicle.[1]

The Desert-class was the first type of General Systems Vehicle built by the Culture.[1] They were in service by c. 6th century BCE.[2]

By the c. 19th century CE Deserts had been reclassified as Medium Systems Vehicles, having been superseded by much larger SVs. A Desert of this time, the Not Invented Here, was just over three kilometres long.[1]
