History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The Pukushik class Cruiser class is used by the Tenjada Moralitate's Tenjada Naval Forces (TNF). There ten of these cruisers in each of the three squadrons. They have better armor than the destroyers as expected but have less speed. They carry a single platoon of marines to repel borders and conduct boarding actions and contraband inspections. To make room for the armor they lost the back up computer and screens. The main sacrifice was required to accommodate the massive factor K meson spinal mount. This weapon allows them to contend with enemy ships of the line. The power drain cost them their agility.
