An old chuyinka ship, part of the "lotus paradigm." As the chuyinka advanced their plans for off-world colonisation, they attracted attention from more and more powerful adversaries. Therefore, they designed a new vessel to protect their colonies and supply lines from large scale attacks. The battle carrier is a newer version of the fleet carrier, designed for heavy combat against enemy star fleets. The battle carrier is built around a single, large-scale assault for the purpose of knocking out enemy capital ships quickly, and its enlarged hangar bay is meant to carry thousands of heavily armed drone interceptors.
