History

The Agamemnon Carrier was the first truly heavy ship of the FIC Fleet. It was designed to be the flagship of their entire fleet and was launched near the end of the Colony Rebellion. It uses rings for spin gravity to it’s habitat areas, while most of the rest of the ship is effectively in zero-G. It is intended to stand off and fire on enemies in support of it’s accompanying fleet. It also happens to be larger than most UEG/SAN battleships. It’s most notable feature, however, is possibly the four engine nacelles that jut out from it’s engine section and limit the ships speed. What they do offer though is completely contained engine and reactor pods that if needed can be released in case of critical failure. Each engine on it’s own can provide about 1G of thrust.

It is armed with sixty quad barrel railgun turrets behind retractable armored covers as it’s main weapons. Forty 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. Of course their main goal as Carriers are to carry fighters and shuttles into combat and it has a large flight deck with multiple bays providing entry and egress on both sides of the upper hull.
