The imposing bulk of an approaching Zokutarn is cause for a good deal of dread an opposing force. At an 1115-metre length and little short of a kilometre wide, the Zokutarn’s sheer size is intimidating. This is compounded by the Zokutarn’s considerable manoeuvrability – it can manoeuvre as ably as a typical cruiser.
The reason for this unusual focus is – as with all the Phystyulon capital ships – a comprise to maintain the combat effectiveness of the huge number of spinal-mount weapons in can bring to bear.
No less than six Class 75 lazer beam cannons and six Class 60 lazer cannons provide an enormous amount of firepower. But even they pale in comparison to the twin spinal-mount Class 300 beam cannons it carries. With an optimal target envelop range of 3.3 light seconds, these devastating weapons and roundly feared. A power core smaller than the Zokutarn’s massive bulk simply could not even power one weapon, let alone two.
The Zokutarn’s secondary weapons are no small shake, either. The forward salvo is supplemented by a pair of triple-fire torpedo tubes for closer range. Twenty Class 60 and eighteen Class 45 pylon lazers provided all-around fire and a hundred and twenty point-defence lazers complete the armament.
The Zokutarn packs considerable shields and armour to top its massive offensive loadout. The Zokutarns are the flagships of the fleet and their reputation is almost legend.
