The Kwang class Missile Cruiser is a warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

It is a vessel with 6-G and J-1 performance with a streamlined needle hull. The Kwang class Missile Cruiser is a streamlined needle/wedge structure with fuel scoops and a fuel purification plant for ocean refueling. The hull is lightly armored and capable of 6 G's of acceleration and average agility. There is enough internal fuel storage for two Jump-1's without refueling, and a back up Model/4 fib ship computer is carried.

  • It carries heavy armament and a powerful defensive suite. The designed intention of the ship is to kill enemy ships of the line with the spinal mounted particle accelerator. The fusion guns are reserved for point defense and the beam laser battery is used to dissuade smaller craft. The numerous 100-ton missile bays are for orbital bombardment, this arsenal can force poorly defended planets to capitulate to a single vessel of this class.
  • It ordinarily carries a number of subcraft and drones. It carries a pair of 60-ton shuttles, and twenty 20-ton light fighters, organized into two squadrons. The marine platoon has 33 drop capsules. The fighter squadrons are used for system scouting and to provide CAS for the marine platoon, who recover using the ship's pair of shuttles.
  • It has a 494 sophont crew and 43 marines. The frozen watch can be used for extra troops, or to provide replacement for crew loses.

The vessel mounts the following weapon systems:

  • x30 heavy missile bays,
  • x20 triple sand caster turrets, firing as 2 batteries
  • x10 dual fusion gun turrets, firing as 20 batteries
  • x1 particle accelerator spinal mount
  • x1 repulsor bay and
  • x10 triple laser turrets, firing as 1 battery.
