Basic Description

Description of the Ship:

The Dracona class heavy battleship designs were given to the Fleet at approximately the same time as the Mary-Rosebourg class designs. These two designs were placed by competing starship design corporations that hoped to secure the lucrative battleship market.

The Dracona class' design was fairly revolutionary at the time. Despite receiving high marks for design merit and performance, the Fleet was never attracted to the Dracona class due to its heavy costs (nearly 3 times the cost of a Mary-Rosebourg class ship).

Between the 2430s and 2450s, the Fleet would only make 10 orders, reducing its final order to 7 when the Depression really hit the Fleet's budget.

Special Systems

Onboard System
Name: Anti-Fightercraft Gunnery System
Model: Airwaves Fightercraft Company
Manufacturer: AFGUNS
Description of System:
Notes: The anti-fightercraft gunnery system was developed for the Dracona class battleship. It allows the ship's laser systems to readjust its power settings and to blank-fire a given area, allowing hit success rates against fightercrafts to be significantly improved

Special Systems

Onboard System
Name: Anti-Sensor Detection System
Model: SPY-AA-649
Manufacturer: Bernon Space Avionics Company
Description of System:
Notes: Anti-Sensor Detection System only work against starships which are far away, and cause considerable energy drain on the ship using it.
