History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The SH70K class Heavy Cruisers, are considered inexpensive in bulk and are capable of wilderness ocean refueling without assistance. They use their meson guns in conjunction with heavy missile batteries to cripple enemy vessels. The size of this main weapon limited their acceleration. The planned 6-G maneuver drives had to be replaced at the last minute by less powerful units, and two fusion reactors were removed from the power plant array. Less powerful secondary weapon batteries are another result of their heavy weapon focus. They do have some surplus armor plating. They have redundant screens and three light fighter squadrons. They feature good range, especially if the Jump-3 drop tanks can be employed. Their cargo capacity allows them to carry more life support and supplies for longer voyages between starport visits.
