Description: Designed as a specialised command-level vessel for the Mandalorian Empire, following the resurgence of Manda'yaim, the return from diaspora, and the gradual rebuild of the Empire into an effective and capable fighting force; the Rex Class is intended as a prestigious reward for capable fleet officers, both to serve aboard, and ultimately, command from. The Captain's Cabin, right off the main bridge, is by far the most spacious and luxurious room on the ship.

With a well protected command bridge, decent armor and quality shields, she is a solid gun platform, with her two powerful main guns allowing the fleet commander to have a personal shotgun of sorts. The sophisticated cryptographic and sensor sections give the commander an unparalleled view of the battlespace, and the ability to intercept and even interdict enemy sensors and communications.

The vessel itself is built around her primary armaments. Two massive MandalArms built long range turbolaser beam weapons. These finickey but powerful guns can lance out from afar to devastating effect. The design process started with the pair of guns, and added the rest of the ship as a support mechanism to the main weapons. This led to concessions in other areas of the design, with a very small dorsal hangar capable of housing only a single squadron, and limited and very cramped space for troops and passengers.

Mainly due to the colossal power requirements of the vessel's two big guns, space is limited, with crews packed tightly among troopers, power generators and the weapons capacitance banks. Crew sections are compartmentalized, giving the off duty personnel some chance of survival should the worst occur. The prestige of serving aboard one of these tight-quartered vessels is certainly more apparent to the officers, who are quartered in the bridge section, with much more standard accoutrements, while the enlisted men and troopers triple bunk and sleep with their gear.

Named by General Kaine for his vod, the lost Australis; Rex Taff, this Class, like its namesake, is tough, can hit from afar, look after itself in a scrap, and always has an excellent view of the battlespace. Like Rex himself, the Rex-Class does not kneel.
