History

The Lien Destroyer was arguably the most combat focused design of the Republika fleet during the Colony Rebellion period. They were designed based on examples of UEG cruisers and destroyers as Republika became concerned with the UEG and then the colonies. While entirely considered obsolete by the Modern Space Era, these destroyers much like the SAN inherited Alamo Destroyer stay relevant by having merciless missile barrages. However the endurance of the Lien is much lower, if used all out it can fire two full volleys of missiles before running dry. On the other hand full volleys are almost impossible to stop, making sure whatever the target was is now dead.

A Pair of Artillery railguns similar to UEG designs are mounted on the upper hull and fixed forward. Also mounted fixed forward, but on the lower hull, are a pair of lasers. A turret with a massive single barrel railgun nearly as large as the artillery ones and a pair of missile launchers i mounted on the upper rear of the hull. Six heavy dual barrel railgun turrets line the upper and lower hulls. Fourteen smaller dual railgun turrets line various locations of the hull. Finally Eight missile launchers line the forward booms, while two large sets of launchers pointing above the ship sit in the middle of the vessel.
