The Gauntlet class Battlecruiser is a warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

It is a vessel with 3-G and J-2 performance with a streamlined wedge hull. This class is as well armed and armored as Sword Worlds Confederation technology can manage. It carries the best meson spinal mount. It lacks speed and agility as a result.
