The Justinian class Battleship is a warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Justinian class Battleship is a TL–11 heavily armored, streamlined needle/wedge configuration hull equipped for ocean refueling as needed. This battleship class is equipped for Jump-2 range and 2-G acceleration and 1-Agility. They can be fitted with drop tanks for 28 days of extra power plant fuel, and an additional Jump-2 drop tanks, as well. It carried enough fuel internally for a single Jump-2. They are considered extended range warships. They carry a pair of model 5 fib computers adjacent to the bridge. The shape helps defend against meson gun fire.

For defense, there are ten batteries of triple sand caster batteries, and four repulsor bays. There is factor 11 hull armor cladding to defend against criticals. It is equipped with fuel scoops and fuel purification for ocean wilderness refueling. It can carry ten 50 ton Cutters for ship to surface operations. For offense, there are ten batteries of triple beam laser turrets, fifty missile bays and four particle accelerator bays. Four fighter squadrons provide combat space patrols, to screen versus enemy fighters and missile strikes. The marine battalion can deploy from meteoric orbital assault and is recovered by the cutters.

The 1,260,000 cubic meter hull requires 44 months singly and 35 months in quantity for construction time. These hulls were involved in a recent expansion of fleet operations, and a great boon in new ship building and a rapid expansion of the fleet. This is a dramatic increase in capacity to cope with the war efforts versus the dreaded Unity of Sed. The computer technology limits the vessel's size and the meson spinal mount is not considered very powerful, despite its size and energy consumption.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

They serve with the The Last Line's three battle squadrons in the Natar Subsector. In bulk, they are considered inexpensive for their size and capabilities. The carry the massive number of heavy missile bays, some internal fuel supply was lost, curtailing their operational range, without tanker support.
