Atlan Spacecraft Architecture & Specifications

Atlan spacecraft in general are thinly armored, relying on powerful shield technology to protect them. Basic military doctrine is to launch a overwhelming wave of space fighters at their enemies, thus keeping the mother-ship out of harm’s way.

Warmonger Class Carrier

    Description:  Long cylindrical ships with hanger bays arrayed all around the outer hull. These spaceships are capable of launching almost every fighter simultaneously. The Warmonger carrier comes in a variety of sizes, though each has the same basic design, thus the class distinction.

    Weaponry:  Focused energy beams and 1000-2000 space fighters.

  • Function:  Carrier.
  • Size of Craft:  5-8 km / 3.1miles long with a radius of about 1km / 0.6 mile.
  • Crew Compliment:  Varies from 1500-2500.
  • Special Notes:  These spacecraft are the work horse of the Atlan fleet.

Vanguard Class Carrier

    Description:  Long cylindrical ships with hanger bays arrayed all around the outer hulk. Like the Warmonger class these spaceships are capable of launching almost every fighter simultaneously. It is said that the Emperor’s Vanguard class carrier eclipses all others, though no official record of it has been found. Though similar in design to the Warmonger class, these spacecraft have extensive construction facilities allow them to replace destroyed fighters quickly.

    Weaponry:  Focused Energy beams and 4000+ space fighters.

  • Function:  Carrier.
  • Size of Craft:  20+ km / 12.5+ miles long with a radius of about 3+km / 2+ miles.
  • Crew Compliment:  5000+
  • Special Notes:  These massive spacecraft are the pride of the Atlan fleet.

Space Fighter

    Description:  A pair of slim wings allow for atmospheric flight, while the craft’s tail section extends above and slightly below its rear. A bank of thrusters encircle the ship’s nose, more occupy areas on each wing tip. The tails each have their own smaller array of thrusters. This combination not only allows for great space maneuverability, but also allows the craft to remain flight worthy even when considerably damaged.

    Weaponry:  A single Focused Energy Beam.

  • Function:  Space and Atmospheric fighter.
  • Size of Craft:  Varies around 50 meters / 165 feet long.
  • Crew Compliment:  1 (Rare variants carry 2)
  • Special Notes:  These small craft are highly maneuverable and protected by a powerful shield.
