The Lorimar class Strike Carrier is a warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

It has been many years since the last Lorimar emerged from the shipyards of the Imperium. Naval doctrine has for some time been going down the route of constructing specialist ships that are dedicated to a single function; such is the way whenever military expenditure is on a high point.

Designed from the spinal mount up as a ship that could survive on its own behind enemy lines, the Lorimar has served with distinction in various conflicts. Able to jump behind the front lines with its powerful Jump drives, it carries enough firepower to make itself a nuisance. Twenty heavy and thirty light fighters allow it to spread its power around the target area while providing cover from the kind of light forces used to picket rear areas.

At 80,000 tons, the Lorimar is a relative heavyweight in the area of rear strikes and has proved itself useful. However those days seem to have passed and it is uncertain whether or not any yard will once again produce a Lorimar.
