The Vrysonu class Missile Cruiser is a guided missile warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Whenever a fleet engages the enemy they will always try to do the maximum damage throughout the engagement while minimizing damage to themselves. If you can engage the enemy from long range while they cannot, then you have a large tactical advantage. Missile cruisers are constructed to use this distance advantage and capitalize on it.

The Vrysonu is an older design. It first saw service in 815 and has been subjected to a few design changes over the years. A workhorse of the battlefleets, it has been involved in most of the fleet engagements since its introduction.

Displacing 100,000 tons these are large vessels and consequently they have a large punch. Not equipped with a spinal mount, they are instead covered in massive missile bays. Indeed, the Vrysonu takes the missile cruiser design to an extreme – it has no secondary or tertiary armament, not even point defense. It is nothing more than a flying missile delivery system, a job it does very well. The hull is based on a cone design which allows the vessel to bring as many tubes as possible to bear on a target, which should always be a great distance from the ship. If there is any danger of the enemy closing, the Vrysonu can use its agility to escape or to hide behind its escorts, and its hull is tough enough to shrug off a few hits.

Even though the Vrysonus are constructed at Tech level-12 specifications, which allows the contracts to be spread over a larger number of shipyards, many are equipped with missiles of a higher overall tech. This allows the older ship an added punch without any upgrades or refits.
