The Long Night

08 May 2019 - 09:23 PM

Akarui

Palace Grounds

 

Kimiko had been unusually focused, since the return of her eldest daughter from the rescue mission on Saijo. It had steeled a certain resolve within the woman, and yet, inside, her own mind could not completely push itself completely where certain parts desired. It hadn't been the first time the darkness had trickled through the woman'd mind and earlier bouts had been staved by music and love. But the streams still persisted at times...

 

The newest procurements were getting underway, and luckily her people were in agreement with her decisions. They were a blessing, her people, and the appreciation would show in time. But for now a heading had been set and the little empire in the corner of the Galaxy was stirring.

 

Mount Fuji

Shrine

 

Nozomi sat in silence centered in the diminutive shrine complex atop the towering mountain. It always calmed her when she made her visits to the country shrines, visiting her priests and priestesses ensuring their spirits were high.

 

But this visit was preceded with troubling news. The more prominent if the shrine wardens had received shadow-filled dreams and odd sensations during their prayers and meditations. This had prompted the small shrine to request an urgent visit and inquiry by the head priestess. She had come, eagerly, to answer their request and attempt to ease their troubles. But she herself was having issues akin to the original summons.

 

The most troubling aspect about the whole ordeal currently, was that it was growing...

Strengths

 

  • Fortress: These two vessels were designed to take a beating and dish it out just as hard.
  • Pride of Akarui: These two ships represent the finest of Akaran craftsmanship to date, no detail was left to the side.
  • Flagship: Both vessels include multiple command and control-centric enhancements, allowing whoever is in charge to see everything happening in battle.
  • Planetary Terror: Even though focused on space combat, these vessels can ferry an entire Legion, along with support, into battle.

 

Weaknesses

 

  • Fighter Support: Carrying only six full fighter squadrons into battle can be a boost, but not against superior numbered opponents.
  • Target: Being such a large and slow-moving vessel, they can be the unfortunate center of negative attention, resulting in opponents focusing firepower on them.
  • Large Electromagnetic Signature: With all the systems upgrades, these ships are easily detected on sensors.
  • Ready. Aim…FIRE!: The dorsal mounted Railgun can only fire in ONE direction, requiring the ships to take time to line up a positive firing solution.
  • Cooldown Timer: Once the railgun is fired, the entire ship’s weapons systems take longer to cycle, leaving them vulnerable to counter-attack.

 

Description

 

The Pride of Akarui. The Empress’s Fist. These monikers are only a few of the ones that describe the Nagato-class battleships. The vessels are imposing images of power projection and command, designed to be at the center of any formation, ensuring the battle is won.

 

Though designed as a command vessel, these ships can easily hold their own in a fight. They are equipped with heavy offensive weaponry, centered around a mounted railgun. These weapons can easily engage several targets at once, only to be finished by a shot from the massive central cannon. The class’s defenses are equally as impressive, layering multiple layers of advanced shields, as well packing a plethora of point-defense weapons.

 

Along with these weapons systems, the ships can carry several squadrons of strike-craft, providing a decent screen against enemy fighters. Along with this, the ships can easily ferry a full Legion of Akaran Marines, along with support assets, into a planetary assault, only increasing these ships lethality on the field of battle.

 

The lead ship of the class is destined to be commanded by Kimiko’s closest companion, Akaran Supreme Commander Chika Takami. The second ship of this class is to be presented to the Coalition, to assist with rebuilding it’s tattered fleet following the Sharukan offenses.
