History

The Spartan is an in-development design for a new generation of Destroyer. Most Destroyers like the Alamo Destroyer or Titan Destroyer are basically missile destroyers relying on a heavy missile barrage against all enemies. The Spartan will be similar to those designs in principal, though with enhanced speed and agility that should allow it to rival frigates.

It is armed with three heavy railgun turrets on both the top and bottom, 12 standard missile launchers each capable of launching up to 40 missiles at once, and 32 laser turrets to provide anti-fighter/anti-missile ability. It only carries enough missiles in reserve for 2.5 full barrages rather than a more traditional four of five reloads. This is in part because of the sheer number of missiles it can fire, however it is also due to the fact no one expects much of anything to live through 2 full volleys off 480 missiles. Such volleys under simulated testing should be able to destroy small fleets in one full volley, so spares are more for endurance between engagements than the expectation for a single encounter.
