The Avenger class Escort Carrier is a subcraft-carrying warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Avenger class Escort Carrier is a durable design used in small numbers by the Ushran Navy.

Armed with 50 triple missile turrets, 10 triple pulse laser turrets, 15 dual fusion gun turrets, and 7 triple sand-caster turrets. They carried a single squadron of 15 Namor class Patrol Torpedo Craft. The computer systems proved too limited for a fleet combatant, the fiber optic back-ups grafted to the civilian designed computational core tended to shed target tracks when overloaded, making accurate gunnery difficult.
