History

The Loki Strike Carrier was Republika’s take on the idea of a ship designed specifically to land combat vehicles and troops onto planets or orbital facilities. While the UEG used freighters for this role the advent of possibly needing to retake a planet complex or facility promoted Republika to think ahead. To make things more unique they can actually carry Corvettes in special brackets along the rear underside of their hull. However they are only designed to carry two or three corvettes in this way to act as a picket. So far they have never had to be used in actual combat and prove their ability, however even with the basic technology falling behind they are still kept ready at all times by the Republika Fleet.

An Artillery Railgun is mounted on the upper hull to give them a heavy long range punch. A pair of underside mounted, fixed forward, lasers compliments the main railgun. Four heavy dual barreled railgun turrets provide it added kick. Finally fifteen railgun turrets add an extra layer of fire power.
