The UEM Florence

Blue Planet: War in Heaven Tech Description

This cruiser-sized medical vessel houses state-of-the-art medical facilities capable of treating thousands of patients on the field. While the vessel is moderately armored using standard UEF modular armor plates, it only has minimal defensive weaponry. As such, the Florence should receive priority fighter cover in case enemy contact is expected. GTVA forces do not normally target the Florence class, but if the vessel travels with a military escort, it is often presumed to be a wartime target.

Presumably, this ship class was named after Florence Nightingale (1820-1910), the founder of the modern nursing profession.

Please read the Veteran Comments policy before editing this section.

At a passing glance, the old Florence could be mistaken for being the EAC Eclipse from Inferno Release 1. It was in fact based on the GTCv Morana from c914's Lost Fleet ship pack. Changes included a new bridge in common with other UEF ships, a different turret layout and new textures.
