History[edit | edit source]
The Confederation-class carrier appears to be a special variant of the Concordia-class Supercruiser and is larger, and contains more weapons and crew than the standard Concordia-class ships.
Specifications[edit | edit source]
The Supercruiser's main offensive asset is its 50 torpedo tubes against other ships or planetary munitions and strategic weapons. It is supplemented by point-defense missiles against fighters and primary antimatter guns. It also contains a small fighter deck for medium fighters or fighter/bombers.
In its capacity of a command class of capital ships, it is equipped with enhanced long-range comunications and sensor packages and contains a hospital facility, brig and quarters for guests/passengers.
It takes 700 officers and crew plus a space for 350 command support and fleet operations and medical personnel.
