UEC Sanctus

Large cruiser class of the UEF for the Blue Planet mod.


Blue Planet: War in Heaven Tech Description

The Sanctus occupies a tactical space between the Karuna frigates and the old GTA Great War-era cruisers. The UEF military officially designates the Sanctus as a next-generation cruiser, though the ship's dimensions approach those of the Vasudan Sobek corvette. The cruiser was designed with the Federation Navy's philosophy of generalisation in mind, and as such has enough cargo space to serve as a military freighter and transport while still performing adequately as a warship.

Veteran Comments

Please read the Veteran Comments policy before editing this section.

The Sanctus is the most numerous of the UEF's versatile and beautiful capital ships. To compensate for its lack of beam weapons and relatively light railgun armament, the Sanctus mounts a pair of four-tube torpedo launchers that a)look incredibly cool and b) allow it to serve as a close-range, formation-disrupting combatant. It may not have much punch, but it can force a GTVA gunline to turn off and deal with a new threat.

The Santcus will get murdered at range by beam-armed combatants. Its antifighter defenses are, relatively speaking, numerous, but while a Sanctus is a veritable fortress except from the fore against bombs, its point-defense weapons are not terribly competent against shields.
