The Admiral Clarkson class Attack Cruiser is a light warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

It is a vessel with 5-G and J-2 performance with a streamlined needle/wedge hull.

Admiral Clarkson class Attack Cruisers
Envisioned as the smallest hull that would hold the largest available particle accelerator spinal mounted weapon. The ship is literally wrapped around this primary weapon. At first, Vilani designs of the Ziru Sirka were ill equipped to repel firepower of this magnitude. They have 115 double occupancy staterooms for 224 crew which include: 11 command, 76 engineering, 74 gunnery, 3 flight, 40 service and 20 marines. Unarmored, under-powered and poorly protected, they feature the experimental, reverse engineered repulsors. The design's focus is on offensive power. The large cargo bay allowed later refits of this series to incorporate additional marine barracks, or fighter squadrons to enhance mission flexibility. They deployed with Jump-2 drop tanks with an additional 28 day endurance.
