A compendium of 58 starships, initially designed for the Imperial Navy, now in use by the many factions of the Rebellion

Description[edit]

The Imperial Navy never planned for the worst of all possible contingencies: a far-flung Rebellion that would shatter the empire into squabbling factions, each with its own portion of the Navy’s fighting strength. Now, Imperial ship fights Imperial ship as the Rebellion drives the entire Imperium into chaos.

Fighting Ships is a compendium of immense battleships and cruisers that served with the Imperial fleet and now serve with the fleets of the many factions of the Rebellion. Included in this book are standard statistical descriptions of 58 ships, with illustrations for 16 of the most interesting.

  • Battleships and dreadnoughts from tech level 11 to 15. Examples include battle tender/rider systems for tech levels 14 and 15.
  • Cruisers, including the standard cruisers from tech level 11 to 15, plus strike cruisers, missile cruisers, and the jump-6 rift cruiser.
  • Carriers, from the standard fleet carriers to the newest light carrier and pocket carrier.
  • Escorts, from the ED-series escort destroyers to the escort fleet and escort missile ships that maneuver with the fleet.
  • Auxiliaries, from the standard fleet tankers to the dromedary combination tanker and resupply ship, plus the rift tanker for operations in the Rifts.
