The Canton class Control Cruiser is a warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Canton class Control Cruiser is a specialized warship. The ship has 6 G acceleration, and 3 agility. The ship is capable of jump 2, and carries enough internal fuel for two jumps. The ship has scoops and purification and its fully streamlined airfoil, needle/wedge configuration hull is unarmored. This allows for ocean refueling. They are fitted with model 5 fib computers adjacent to the bridge. They are fitted with 28 days of extra power plant fuel and well as another jump 2 drop tank for increased range when crossing rifts zones. They are fitted with Model/5 fib computers adjacent to the bridge.

The design is fast and agile, and the philosophy carries over into their offensive weapons load. There are no defensive systems carried. It is armed with a factor D particle accelerator spinal mount. It carries three hundred triple missile turrets in thirty batteries, eighty dual plasma gun turrets, and eighty triple beam laser turrets.

These ships have vast wings and are equally comfortable flying as VTOL planes as well as spaceships. They enter the upper atmosphere, scan before landing to deploy their fleet footed hordes of aggressive troopers. As they land to deploy troops, the need for sub craft is dispensed with.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The class was commissioned for the Esaran Cultural Area, in the Halcyon Sector dominated by the Esaran, Sophonts native to Rasand (world) (0717 Halcyon).

They strike as a hidden assassin, lurking in a gas giant, waiting for prey. They prefer, one shot, one kill for frail enemy merchant vessels looking to refuel, unsuspecting.
