History

The Achilles Carrier is the primary flagship of the FIC fleet, replacing the earlier carrier designs with an even more refined version of the same type of design. The biggest changes were a single vectored thrust engine, a doubling of it’s laser turret load, and a set of super conducting rings used to store energy. While they had access to LGS they decided to keep using habitat rings, in fact they added a third and none of them are armored like it’s most immediate predecessor, because they were cheaper than a complete LGS design for such a large ship and the rings can still provide full earth normal gravity. That said the ship does have inertial compensators and other aspects of LGS built into it’s design and after launch a .1 G minimum gravity was applied in the entire ship to make things easier.

It is armed with sixty quad barrel railgun turrets behind retractable armored covers as it’s main weapons. Eighty laser turrets in ball mounts provide point defense capability versus missiles and fighters. On top of these it mounts twenty double tube heavy missile launchers. Like the Hecate before it, they further reduced the Razor fighter screen in favor of more medium fighters. In fact it almost carries as many medium fighters as the original Agamemnon did Razors.
