The Biskra class Regimental Assault Cruiser is a warship.

Description (Specifications)

Pressed into service as a capital ship of the line by its desperate rebel users, this ship was designed to deliver a small marine regimental combat team with three small battalions to a world's surface. It was intended to be well screened and protected by heavier fleet elements. When the AssaultRon defected they were pressed into several roles for which they were not intended. They have the most advanced, heaviest spinal mounted meson guns in the Katowice navy.
