Design Notes

The Kitaeru is an attempt to make a smaller version of the Izanagi Class Light Cruiser. However, they wanted to move the massive cannon out of the hull and mount it into a turret. This took creating a special turret just for it’s brand new Sanda 1200A Railgun. It also has a set of HLS Bays with a shuttle bay above them, everything to the rear of this is the engines and everything before it is the crew section.

Weapons

The Kitaeru has a simple weapon layout with a Special Heavy Railgun Turret using a Sanda 1200A Railgun Turret. It’s only other weapons are 4 HLS Bays using 6-Cell SM-9 ERAM HLS.

History

The Kitaeru Class Frigate is meant as a mobile artillery platform to support smaller vessels or act as part of fleet or task force. On it’s own it isn’t to impressive against other vessels. Against large targets like stations or locations on a planets surface it’s amazing with incredible pinpoint firepower.
