Valor Heavy Cruiser

Valor

Classification: Heavy Cruiser (HCR)
Design Date: 2XXX
Date of Original Manufacture: 2XXX

Description

This is the first extra-solar FTL capable Cruiser design of humanity, meant to be the ship to act as the base for all future designs. It was designed in 2XXX after a series of test vessels for the FTL drives were created and tested. It was a radical redesign and the full scale test bed of many experimental technologies.

In design it’s a roughly rectangular design with four engines in a ‘X’ pattern and 2 sweeping booms in the fore, with a command tower slightly more than half way back along the top. Two secondary bridges are mounted at strategic locations providing backup command functions. It mounts two lower output secondary engines in the main hull at the rear in case of lose of the main engines or need for more thrust.

Drives

Quad Experimental Fusion Drives for in-system movement and a FTL 1 Hyperdrive.

Weapons

It’s main guns are dual massive particle guns mounted along the forward booms, this is followed by 20 missile batteries, and 40 railgun retractable turrets.

Smallcraft

It’s fighter bays typically hold 2 Misquito fighters, 6 Eagle fighters, 6 Hawk fighters, 20 Falcon fighters, and 5 Typhoon Shuttles.
