The Sopheram-class Carrier


Description:

Tech Room Description

While the Euryphaessa-class battlecarriers finally gave the Commonwealth a tool capable of confronting the Exarchy's Emperor-class Assault Carriers head on, their complex construction presented numerous issues. Considered revolutionary when first conceptualized, by the time the first ship of the Euryphaessa-class was finally completed, its armor layout and power grid amongst other systems were already considered archaic, being incapable of supporting a strong shielding system, and impossible to modernize. FedCom thus sought a new design which could be constructed rapidly to replace inevitable losses, and to bolster numbers for added flexibility against the numerically-superior Exarchy. The solution was the Sopheram-class carrier - a smaller design that sacrifices direct-combat capability for ease of construction but retains characteristics desirable in a carrier. The Sopheram features dual-purpose catapult/launchers which can rapidly deploy strikecraft or load torpedoes for anti-warship/installation capability, and a full-length flight deck for aerospace operations.
