History

The Regent Light Cruiser is a very old design built at the end of the Interstellar Space Era and the beginning of the Modern Space Era as the first product of the Republika shipyards. They were once the king’s of the fleet until more recent expansion has left them under powered compared to later fully combat focused designs. On the other hand these vessels still have non-combat facilities offering them other duties than pure combat roles.

It’s armed with 10 laser turrets for point defense duties, 2 fixed forward railguns, and a pair of standard missile launchers each capable of launching up to 4 missiles at once. This gives it arguably better firepower than it’s closest counterpart in the SAN the Odyssey Light Cruiser which lacks the use of the lasers for point defense, but has it’s big guns in turret mounts with a larger missile launch capability.

Originally the Regent’s were zero-G designs. These were updated to a LGS system once Republika gained access to the technology, however they were primitive systems. The ships were never updated beyond that point because it was decided it was a waste of money better spent on new ships.
