- Scythian Naval Military Catalouges -
- Upgrades to "Monarch" Class Battlecruiser -
With the fires of war burning, the older Monarch class battleships are being upgraded once more - following the addition of MWS (Modular Weapon Systems) to the class to modernise thier firepower, they are now being equipped with the Tri-laser defence turret designs mastered through the creation of the "Despot" Class Cruiser - essentially tripling the fearsome anti-fighter/anti-missile capability of the Monarch class and bringing them back up to date with the vessels used by other star faring powers.
The Monarch Class armed with the "Classic" Dual Heavy Laser Turrets - essentially keeping the ship equal in all aspects, a strong all rounder in the field.
The Monarch Class armed with the recent addition of Anti-Matter Projector Turrets - while it is unable to fire all four turrets at once due to thier massive energy requirements, the Monarch fires them in sequence, thus ensuring maximum capitol ship grade firepower can be delivered against the target.
The Monarch Class armed with the now modular Anti-matter missile launchers, these external bays where developed due to the recent Immortal tactic of targeting Anti-matter based missiles before other munitions, causing thier detonation - and unfortunatley, Scythian casualties. In this form, the entire bay can be ejected before a catastrophic reaction can occour. These bays are reloadable and carry 8 missiles each, more than enough to spread destruction across the stars.
The Monarch Class armed with the "Basilisk" Point Defence Turrets - these multicannon turrets can shred fighters and missiles to pieces at long range - and when combined with the new Tri-barrel systems - make fighter wings run in fear. Would you rather face a regular battleship with your fighter wings? Or an entire battleship devoted to the sole purpose of ripping small craft to shreds?
These upgrades are being taken both back and forth to every ship that can carry the new weapon systems (being every class except the Savager Frigate - which is simply too small to mount the tri-cannons effectively) in order to fight back against the ever increasingly hostile attitude of the galaxy at large.- HONOUR - DUTY - SCYTHIA -
