The Dzen class Strike Cruiser is a warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The hull is large by Vargr standards and the ship is more advanced than several classes of larger Vargr warships. The hull is a very lightly armored, streamlined needle/wedge fitted with fuel scoops and purification refineries for ocean refueling. Ship's vehicles include: two 25 ton Gigs which are occasionally replaced with light fighter/interceptors. There are twenty particle accelerator barbettes firing as two batteries, a light meson gun spinally mounted, eleven batteries of triple missile turrets for launching anti-shipping torpedoes, ten dual fusion gun turrets firing as a single battery, and twenty triple pulse laser turrets fire as two batteries. The screens are near maximum for this TL–14 design. There are 6 triple sand caster turrets in single battery to compensate for the thin armor (carbon nanotube mesh over forged aluminum and titanium platelets) on the hull. The jump 5 capacity is essential in its role as a light strike cruiser, however, it lumbers without agility and has only 3-G's acceleration. The smaller power plant, combined with the massive power draw of the meson gun are blamed. The Model/7 fib computer is slightly out of date, and it is fitted military grade sensors, adjacent to the bridge.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The Dzen class Strike Cruiser is a warship primarily serving within the Vargr Extents.

Serving with the Vargr Navy this design is a class of smaller strike cruiser, optimized for long range penetration raids. They are inexpensively built at a shipyard in the Ksethu (world) system. There has been no official explanation for the odd hull size. Rumors persist that it involved a labor dispute over hull grade metal ore refinery quotas versus foundry overtime pay.
