History

The Octavius Heavy Cruiser is the Hody fleets replacement for the aging Nanxing Cruiser that was lost during the Colony Rebellion. It was built on the general blueprint for the modifications that had been done to the Nanxing before it was lost. It is arguably a Battle Cruiser in designation, however it has some facilities which suggest it’s a Heavy cruiser with a brutal combat capability. Originally it was designed to have a set of habitat rings to provide gravity, however they acquired limited gravitic technology as it was being built and incorporated an LGS system. The FTL drive comes straight from plans they acquired during the Colony Rebellion, making it a bit of an antique.

It has 2 forward mounted heavy railguns to give it a bite to the forward arc of the ship. That is backed up by ninety six laser turrets for point defense and anti-ship use. Thirty quad barreled railgun turrets supplement the lasers. A pair of standard missile launchers designed for broadside use, one to each side, provide long range firepower.
