Development Thread: NA
Manufacturer: Mandal Hypernautics
Model: Nexus-class Cruiser
Affiliation: Mandalorian Navy, Hyperion Security, Restricted Private Sales
Modularity: Alternative loadout; Minor Production
Production: Mass Production
Material: Alusteel, Durasteel, Duraplast, and other common construction materials,
Description: Built from the ground up with efficiency in mind, the Nexus-class Cruiser is a simple and reliable warship that serves in a number of fleets. The engineers of this vessel set out to lower the production cost of the vessel by substituting a large portion of the ship's laser weaponry with cheaper mass-driver weapons. This balance of different weaponry, which included concussion missile launchers, inadvertently made the Nexus remarkably well-rounded on the offensive. Thanks to the wide range of weaponry, captains of this vessel found themselves capable of exploiting a number of weaknesses in an enemy ship's design. From insufficient ray shielding to neglected particle shields, the Nexus was capable of registering a target ship's vulnerabilities and focusing its efforts into coordinated strikes.

Since its introduction, the Nexus-class Cruiser has become a common sight in fleets across the galaxy. Its relatively cheep price, combined with its tactical flexibility have made it a favorite of many as struggling government or fringe warlord who have turned this vessel into the backbone of any fleet unable to afford to field large numbers of star destroyers.

The Nexus sports a balanced mix of Heavy Turbolasers, Quad Heavy Mass-Drivers, and Heavy Ion Cannons arranged evenly over the hull. The ship is defended by a mix of Mass-Driver Flak Cannons and Point Defense Lasers spread evenly over the hull.
