Description (Specifications)[edit]

This class of Sword Worlds Confederation Strike Cruiser is seen deployed in the Joyeuse Fleet.

Hull / Engineering[edit]

They are capable of 3 Gs acceleration and have jump 3 range. They have a partially streamlined close structure hull with medium to light armor. They are equipped with fuel scoops and fuel purification refineries for wilderness gas giant refueling operations.

Main Section[edit]

They have 271 crew which includes a small marine platoon drop capsule equipped for orbital insertion. Spartan, cramped quarters are the common expectation aboard these military vessels. Redundant computers, Nuclear Dampers and Meson Screens contribute to their vaunted durability and ability to absorb hits and keep fighting.


Build around a factor D spinal mounted meson gun as their premiere ship killing weapon, their seven heavy missile bays account for a substantial number of kills. A single battery of triple sand caster turrets and a single repulsor bay are the only concessions to defense on these offensively minded vessels. Light meson and nuclear dampers with back ups do their part. As single battery of pulse laser turrets, selected for their enhanced damage causing abilities, a single battery of fusion guns and a single particle accelerator bay round out the offensive weapons array.


They carry a single 20 dton Longboat as an interface and service craft.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

These are no to be confused with another class with the same name, due to a lack of creativity or flattery this class was named after a popular and famous class of Gauntlet class Battlecruisers built by Gram (world).
