History

The Koudai class carrier is one of the earliest light carrier designs. Unlike any vessel before it, Gravitic technology made fighters practical beyond close range around a planet or base and the primary purpose of this carrier is to carry fighters. However no one was sure how a carrier concept would work. So it provides nearly as much firepower as a cruiser and is nearly the same size.

It has 56 railgun turrets and 44 laser turrets to provide defensive protection. None of these are big guns, but it has a large amount of guns that can cause significant damage. It has a large flight bay taking up the center of the ship with everything else built around it. Two bay doors in the front allow access to the flight deck.
