The Orilaa Battlecruiser forms the core of the Matriarchy heavy ships. It has the most significant forward firepower of any of the Matriarchal Navy vessels short of the Nolaarulu, consisting of four spinal-mount lazer cannons. Two of these had to be mounted on the sides of the forward hull, which give it its atypical profile. It also has the manoeuvrability of a smaller cruiser, allowing it much more chance to bring those guns to bear.
The main guns are supplemented by a short-ranged arrays of eighteen particle beam turrets and point defence arrays and turrets that are rated at 240 on the Xygritt’s scale. However, like many smaller Xygritt ships, only the latter systems provide and firepower coverage at the rear.
With a good balance of offensive and defensive capabilities, the relatively new Orilaa has seen widespread deployment as fast as it could be deployed.
