The Lucrehulk-class Command Carrier is, quite literally, a revival of an archaic vessel which was easily identified as an icon of the former Confederacy of Independent Systems. In all areas, save for overall size and a minor difference in, armament, hull composition, and standard complement, the Lucrehulk-class Command Carrier is a mirror of its ancestor: the Lucrehulk-class Battleship. To begin, the revival of this vessel was accomplished by the engineers and designers of Druckenwell Shipyards; with the goal in mind of producing a durable, reliable means of ferrying troops, starfighters, and ground vehicles to their respective battlefields. To this end, the design teams needed to look no further than a history book in order to find the perfect vessel to fulfill this role.

In terms of overall capabilities, the Lucrehulk-class Command Carrier is, at its heart, a transport vessel of the highest caliber. While it is armed with a sufficient sum of defensive measures, and typically ferries a complement of droids, vehicles, and the like, its uses extend far beyond that of the battlefield. These vessels, due to their exceptional carrying capacity, can be utilized as means of salvation for planetary evacuations; or even in commerce!

As its ancestor was famed for its exceptional durability on the field of battle, so too shall the Lucrehulk-class Command Carrier. A norm practice for the Druckenwellian designers is to compose a ship's hull out of a unique combination of Turadium and Durasteel, thereby creating a lasting longevity in the face of a shield droppage. Coupled with the size of the hulls, and the overall "bulky" design of the ship, the Lucrehulk-class Command Carrier can take as much punishment in the modern era as its ancestor.

Finally, as aforementioned, this vessel is a transport engine at its very core. To this end, it has an unparalleled carrying capacity thanks to the "ring carrier" which is built around the "core ship". Within this carrier can be held an exceptional sum of metric tons' worth of cargo, whether it be militant or otherwise. All in all, the Lucrehulk-class Command Carrier is an icon of the past, revived for the present for usage by the Confederacy of Independent Systems.

Author's Note: This submission is quite literally the Lucrehulk-class Battleship from canon, with its armament and complement having been scaled down by a ratio of unit per meter of ship length.

I would suggest perhaps saving a design based off the Lucrehulk because the actual ship is listed at 3,000m and we're shrinking it down.

While I know there are the restrictions for size, perhaps clarifying it as something other than Lucrehulk would do. Something to signify that it's not a full size, but a smaller version.

Always was biased towards "Pocket" Battleship/Carrier, etc.

Let's not use the exact name of a common, canon starcraft for the Confederacy. It will only confuse members.

Also, we don't need approval for common canon ships.

The ships that were used long ago that were named like this are considered extinct or so very underpowered that its not even funny. He could be just upgrading the cannon ones for the uses here.
