F-s 14 TSS Eden Center Hull 4
TSS Eden Center
The Eden Center like the previous ships in the class are designed to take tactically devestating blows to preserve the intregity of the Carrier.Once again the hangerbay was extended, this time two twin hangers, or berthing for larger space craft, with full maintenance capability. This ship design did not opt for another main energy weapon but instead opted for more organic spacecraft capability. This hull does have a forced docking clamp, designed to attach to a hostile vessels hull and forceablly cut open the hull to make a forced entry to allow Tresedian bording parties to avoid the well protected and sometimes bobbie trapped main pressure air lock.
The space frigate was designed to be the front line protection for the carrier fleet. As new strike force tactics were developed for space combat, so were the combatants that were to partake in ship versus ship combat in space. The space frigate provides maximum firepower focused in an area for a short duration of time. This allows carriers to manouver and the frigated to actually take hits for the carrier if need be. The frigates are designed to take large sustained burst of energy directed weapons. This allows the carrier space group to maouver and launch its organic space wing to strike the attacker or any threat deemed hostile. This ship hull was designed to intercept and board and forceablly if necessary other space craft for inispection or to take as a prize.
The TSS Eden Center is the fourth in the Benson class, it most notablly was designed by engineers from the Wonton Republic, (expats living in Tresedia) hence the name Eden Center. The TSS Eden Center has two closed cold fission reactors capable of powering Lacron City for 2,000 years. The Eden Center is capable of traveling Mach 65 (due to the increased thrust to weight ratio from the hanger) at a sustained rate for almost one month. It takes the Eden Center one day to reach maximum velocity and two days to slow down. Maximum effective cruising speed of the Eden Center is Mach39.
The Eden Center is equiped with 5x Dalgren type II Main Direct Energy Weapons. This energy is extracted right from the fission reactor. If all five guns are fired at once the ship needs to recharge and allow it weps to cool. this takes approximate 50 minuets with the extra gun, this ship does indeed have the have the cooling spindal assembly.
The Eden Center has 40 Vickers anti-spacecraft guns a vast improvement over the last two in the line, they fire structure piercing lasers. These lasers can fire for 24 hours during general quarters situations with out replacing the battery. This space craft has no missiles or organic spacecraft capability. It can dock with several ships at once.
