DESCRIPTION: 
The plans for MandalArms new line of marketable vessels continued apace with the development of the Vandal-Class Attack Cruiser, with heavy involvement from MandalArms R&D.
 
Her forward and aft sections are armored, shielded, and packed with capacitors for the primary armaments. The central hull houses the main bridge, and main engineering sections. Masses of power generators line the tail section to power the engines, shields, and primary weapons. There is no room for hangar space or cargo on this vessel, packed so tightly are the power generators and shielding required for the powerful armaments and fast hyperdrive. Along the belly of the cruiser is the main forward armament, the devastating proton beam cannon. Of course, damage done is dependent on the target, and, this proton beam cannon is not nearly as powerful as a similar type weapon on a large vessel. 

The central hull is almost full of ammunition stores and gun decks. Packed tightly with the heavy broadside armaments, this section of the ship is the beating heart, and if it can be protected from the enemy, capable of inflicting massive damage from close range in a very short time. Of course, with this much live ammo around, damage to the central hull is something best avoided by captains.

A full broadside from this attack cruiser is something to be avoided. Devised by the new head of MandalArms to be a devastating and cost-effective vessel, the Vandal is designed to do as the name intends.

My biggest concern here is the proton beam cannon, and it's just not something that I'm personally comfortable with letting go on a mass production and certainly not at this power level. So you can either, write in a disclaimer that mentions that 1. You cannot force people to take damage, and that 2. This proton beam cannon is not nearly as powerful as the canonical cannon given that it is fitted to a smaller vessel. Or, you can create your own cannon and add that to submission. This is otherwise a good to go submission.

Armament: Very HighSpinal Mount Proton Beam Cannon Port and Starboard  Broadside Cannons

 

The Broadside Cannons are listed at being at "minor" production, and this sub is mass produced. This means that this ship should also be minor production (or lower than that), or the broadside cannons should be replaced with something else.
