  • [SIZE=9pt]Ramming Speed: The wedge-shaped prow of the ship is layered with impervium - the same material used in the Leviathan-class monitor that allows it to submerge in lava. Consequently, if a ship of comparable size were rammed by the Vekker at full speed, the devastation would be enormous. [/SIZE]
  • [SIZE=9pt]Flanking: Many of the weapons are intended to aim and fire forward or to the sides, significantly less attention has been paid to protect the ship from attacks at the aft. [/SIZE]
  • [SIZE=9pt]Multi-role: Jack of all trades, master of none. The Vekker can perform a variety of operations, but none of them particularly well, ramming excepted. [/SIZE]
[SIZE=9pt]Description: [/SIZE]
[SIZE=9pt]The Vekker-class is designed to enter engagement fast and hard. While on the surface it is a multi-role cruiser, it truly shines at close range, where it can ram into enemy ships with its wedge-shaped prow.[/SIZE]

[SIZE=9pt]The majority of the Vekker’s weapons sit just behind the prow blade, aimed in a forward firing arc. The shields of the ship are nothing to scoff at in their own right, but when ramming at close range is paired with the ACS energy siphons, taking down the Vekker’s deflectors is easier said than done.[/SIZE]

[SIZE=9pt]The prow of the warship is made from impervium, allowing it to crumple the hulls of enemy vessels. Ramming itself is usually done in a two stage process. First, the mass drivers load and fire special PBOL ammunition, which sticks to and freezes the enemy hull. Second, the Vekker rams into the frozen area at high speed, shattering the brittle section. [/SIZE]

[SIZE=9pt]The Vekker is capable of reversing quickly for a second blow, but cannot turn very swiftly. Primarily armed with all-purpose mass drivers, the versatility between rounds allows the Vekker to unleash a deluge of anti-fighter or missile flak, or a broadside of heavy capship piercing rounds. [/SIZE]

[SIZE=9pt]Lastly, the man-o-war comes with both electronic protection firewalls and an electronic warfare suite, complete with jamming capabilities. [/SIZE]

Impervium Ramming Prow

Production: Mass-Produced.
I'm going to have to ask you to either remove the Ramming Prow or move down the production to Limited, as a prow on an 800m cruiser is sizeable, and for it to be mass produced is too much Impervium.

8 ACS-803 Energy Siphon Cannons
These are only Minor, which is contradicted by their use in a mass produced ship submission, this issue can be resolved by reducing this ship to Minor as well to mirror that, or following the solution above to keep the ramming prov, to limited.

Impervium is "frequently" used on starships according to wookieepedia, which contradicts the assumption that impervium is in as limited a supply as phrik or beskar.

"Impervium was a tremendously resilient alloy frequently used for the armor on capital ships. It was stronger than duranium, another type of protective metal.[1]"


I can do minor production, but if you insist on limited, then that leaves us at an impasse.

Apologies, it's a rather tough call for the generalized policing of Restricted Materials. I believe minor production with the Impervium ram is acceptable.
