  • Very slow, and sluggish to maneuver

Description:

 

A private contract between business interestsand the Warmaster of the Mandalorian Empire, led to MandalArms' scientists being set to work on producing a unique vessel capable of carrying a wealth of smaller craft while keeping a very low profile.

With eighteen hangars able to hold many different craft she is no defenceless, and strong armour and shields plus a wealth of smaller, faster, turret based weaponry make her a tough target for enemy craft. Though she cannot hit back directly against enemy capital ships, she can take a hell of a beating while her own complement deals with any threats.

Built in a complete and utter copy of an ancient Mon Calamari design the client had found on the HoloNet, she is long-hulled with all-aspect sensor coverage. The wings allow for point defence weapons to better cover the normally vulnerable stern and engine sections, an advantage this hull design has over Imperial-style vessels of its day.
 
The outer hull is ablative plated doonium, coated in reflec. Well shielded, her energy output, while impressive, is carefully concealed from outside, with phobium coated in agrinium, radiation shielding, dampeners, and absorbers keeping the reactor and output from the Tibanna-X engines and thrusters from giving the ship away. The outer hull has weapon blisters dotted across it, giving the vessel excellent fields of fire where starfighters are concerned.
 
Built big and built powerful, she is not the most maneuverable or durable ship in the sky by a long stretch, though she has excellent eyes and ears and a large strike package. She is capable of taking a major pounding and coming through in one piece, providing a safe home for her wealth of smaller craft.

This is solidly balanced and looks like a good piece of lore. There's one minor thing, but I think there's an easy fix:

 

Manufacturer: MandalArms

Length: 2000 meters

 

Technically,the largest combat ship that MandalArms can manufacture on its own would be 1000 meters long per Table 2.0. Aneasy fix thoughwould be to have the pirates (as a minor faction) be the primary manufacturers, with MandalArms acting as the subcontractor (design & components). 

 

Alternatively, you could reduce this to 1000 meters in size and make adjustments or find another manufacturing company of a higher tier to produce this as is.
