GVC Mekhet (PVC Mekhet).
The multiple available textures.

The GVC Mekhet is a fan-made Vasudan cruiser created by Galemp.

The release pack included several different themed skins. These variants featured varying insignia and glow colors specific to individual Vasudan factions, including the PVN (light blue), GTVA (light green) and Hammer of Light (red), as well as yellow, blue, pink and gold skins with different letters of the (non-canon) Vasudan alphabet. Also included were different table entries balanced for FreeSpace 1-era, Reconstruction-era and Post-Capella-era campaigns. The version pictured is the PVN (FS1-era) incarnation.


Tech Room Description (FS1-era)

The Vasudans' heaviest cruiser, the PVC Mekhet, outclasses our own Fenris cruisers in armor, but with fewer turrets. The cruiser is, however, the slowest warship in either fleet, making it easier to outrun or evade than confront directly. Mekhets are too slow to be deployed on the front lines, and have only been encountered defending installations and jump nodes in core Vasudan systems.

Tech Room Description (Reconstruction)

The Mekhet-class heavy cruiser was slated to replace the Aten in the Vasudan navy when the Shivans attacked. Though a few prototypes were constructed, production came to a halt when Sahr's Altair shipyards were captured by the Hammer of Light. It is unknown whether the HoL built any of these cruisers for their own purposes.

Tech Room Description (Post Capella)

Designed as a defensive counterpart to the Mentu, the GVC Mekhet is a capable warship with a diverse array of weaponry, including beam cannons, anti-fighter beams, flak guns and pulse turrets. The Mekhet's configuration is heavily armored, and has proven itself capable of going toe-to-toe with any enemy cruiser.
