The Huron class Bombardment Cruiser is a bombardment warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Accurate, devastating, fearsome. Just three words that have been used by the unfortunates to describe the business end of the Huron class of bombardment cruiser. Fifty thousand displacement tons of slow moving warship allows a lot of volume for planet-facing weaponry. A flattened spheroid hull allows the ship’s weapons to be concentrated on the lower hull along with the main sensor arrays.

Dozens of bays of meson cannons and missiles backed up with numerous laser turrets allow the Hurons to fire at multiple ground based targets and ensure they have the correct weapon for the job at hand. The lack of a spinal mount allows even more space to be allocated to these versions of death from above. A superlative sensor and communications suite allows the tacticians on the bridge to send down their deadly wares with pinpoint accuracy and enables tracking of multiple targets simultaneously.

Named after large bodies of water on major planets the Hurons have had, and still do enjoy, an illustrious history. The Huron was instrumental in the retaking of some Zhodani held worlds during the Third Frontier War, and were involved in most of the few successful engagements against Zhodani troops during the war.
