History

The Vallee Heavy Cruiser was designed by Republika during the Colony Rebellion based on information they obtained about UEG cruisers. Capable of massive barrages of missiles and railgun rounds, this series was meant to guarantee Republika’s safety from outside threats. Threats which never actually appeared, hence the low number of these actually built.

The main weapon of the Vallee is a massive fixed forward double barreled artillery railgun. This is backed up by two fixed forward lasers. Three dual barreled heavy railgun turrets add to it’s anti-ship firepower. Two more turrets with a single heavy railgun and a pair of missile launcher boxes rounds out the last of the heavier railguns. However twenty four dual barrel railgun turrets cover various parts of the ship. Lastly two small missile launchers and two larger missile launch boxes cover the sides of the ship firing into the forward arc. While all the missiles are limited to a single reload, so only two full volleys are possible, it can actually launch eighty eight missiles in a single volley.
