The War Child class Command Carrier is a specialized fighter-carrying warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

It is a vessel with 4-G and J-1 performance with a streamlined TBD hull.

The smaller classes tend to have a two tone color scheme. The matte black dorsal surface for low visibility and the charcoal grey belly of the sleek wedges is contrasted here by a large dark ominous thickly armored sphere. Swarms of tiny fighters and massive missile salvoes await any targets foolish enough to close within range of this monster. One of these is assigned as a flag ship to each system's defensive forces. Offensive jump range was not a design priority. They carry fifty Death Kite class Light Fighter squadrons. They serve with the Geonee Self Defense Forces.
