About this creation


The relatively poor performance of T'borek fighting fleets in the late 2170s against the technologically advanced Andraghi led to a shift in military doctrine and a near complete retooling of existing ship designs. The Jaguar class battlecruisers with their spine mounted main gun, huge power plants, high agility, and strong shields became the template.



Following the success of the Lynx class escort carrier, the first Ocelot class battle frigate was delivered in late 2180. The Ocelot and Lynx share much of their superstructure resulting in a much faster design and production turnaround.



The Ocelot excels in both fire support and escort roles. In addition to the spine mounted Hellbore cannon, they are armed with six anti-fighter turrets and three high power dual-turreted plasma cannons. This level of firepower is unprecedented on a vessel of this size, hence its designation as a "battle" frigate.



The biggest drawback of these vessels is that their primarily offensive role requires greatly lowered shield levels given the power requirements for sustained firing. Lighter shields coupled with relatively light armor result in a less durable firing platform.



Most Ocelot crews thrive on the high risk/high reward nature of their vessels. They tend to attract both the fearless and foolhardy from the ranks of T'borek warriors--those seeking the glory of victory or the honor in death.

Boring stuff: ~45" and slightly swooshable (the side guns don't really want to stay put). The keel and most of the paneling is the same as the Lynx.
