'All standard features'


  • Expanded sensor arrays with reserve systems
  • Advanced targetting matrix to sync all weapon systems.


  • The Maniple-class is very fast. Its lack of strong shielding and low complement capacities allows it to expand its engine units and conduct far more energy to the rest of the ships systems. Equally outrunning most similar-sized in hyperspace as in real space.
  • Strong anti-capital ship armament.
  • Strong hull plating and framework.



  • Poor shielding, for its size and combat role, the ship features a very weak shielding, easily overcome by firepower focused enemy ships.
  • Minor anti-aircraft armament, lacking the complement to counter enemy fighters or bombers, it lacks the point-defence weapons as well.
  • No complement at all.
  • To make room for the large hyperdrive engine units, the cargo and passenger capacity was drastically decreased.


  • Crew: 14.500
  • Passengers: 200
  • Cargo capacity: 1.200 tons
  • Consumables: 2 Weeks
