It is a vessel with 2-G and J-2 performance with a Unstreamlined Braced Cluster Hull. As far as performance goes, this TL-11 brute masses 22,000 dt, lumbers along at 2-G acceleration, and has Jump-2 capability. Being only a partially streamlined sphere, the Zirukaruna relies on support tankers for refueling; though it is possible to undertake wilderness refueling, the Vilani find it difficult to envision a battleship operating in wilderness conditions. It carries 500 tons of extra fuel to guard against hits that pierce its armored hull.
- It carries heavy armament and a military defensive suite. It is armed with a 1.75 gigawatt CPAWS spinal mount, two 50 ton plasma cannon bays, eight 100 ton missile bays, and a plethora of 5 pulse laser turrets and seventy triple sandcaster turrets.
- It ordinarily carries no subcraft, no ship's vehicles, and drones only when needed.
- It has a 195 sophont crew and 22 marines.
