Often refered to as a Heavy Cruiser, such a designation is not entirely accurate. This ship is an order of magnitude smaller than capitl class vessels. Howeever it was designed from the ground up for hyperdrive, antigrav and incorporated modern muon drive based antimatter thrust engines. Packed with the latest technology and a low crew requirement the ship packs a punch similar to older considerably larger British space cruisers, thus why it has received the designation.

It is being phased in as the defacto stnadard warship for use by the entire British fleet, and fills the gap left by current phasing out the older ORION derived destroyers similar to the Balitimore?s the Americans use. Britosh policy seems to adopt smaller more current ships and go for numbers, while retaining a smaller cadre of capital class ships for major fleet engagements.
