Product Description

A common complaint of cruiser squadron commanders during the Liberation War was the lack of decent flag command facilities on vessels below capital scale, especially light cruisers and destroyers. As time passed and the Royal Navy settled into a more traditional defensive role rather than the campaign of reconquest, the need for light combatants to operate independantly of the main battle line became much more prominent.

With the advent of new technology, and the addition of the Kintyre and Orkney cruiser classes, the decision was made to design a new, dedicated flagship cruiser class. The result (after many compromises) was the Argyll. A slightly expanded hull provides room for additional power systems, while the forward graser mounts are deleted in order to accomodate both the Caledonia's fusion guns and the Orkney's Hellrails.

New hyperdrive coils were employed to allow the heavier hull to maintain FTL speed and free up power for the expanded weapons suite. The Caledonia's half-squadron of Scorpion fighters was also maintained, although the facilities for them were somewhat more cramped than previously. The flag command facilities were equally small, but functional, allowing a squadron commander to coordinate the unit's activities with considerably more comfort than previously.

Edited 5/25/17 with new hyperdrive nacelles and lower FUD pricing
