History

The Griffon Cruiser is the flagship of the Kingdom’s fleet. It’s most unique feature is fore and aft mirrored engines, in the style of the Penemuan Transport, which let it adjust it’s speed without having to flip around as well as making it very agile. That said it is faster going forward then the reverse. While not the heaviest in firepower, it does provide some good fire with it’s turrets. It’s main issue is it’s low speed and even so it’s cruise and max speeds overlap in a survivable range for humans, though sustained 4G travel is extremely problematic. Because of this it rarely pushes itself over 2G except as a combat maneuver.

It is armed with ten quad barreled heavy railgun turrets and fourteen quad railgun turrets. The ability to fill space with 96 railgun rounds lets it create storms of shrapnel for enemies to avoid.
