Starfighter Complement: 6 fighters (usually EA Starfuries)

The Hyperion-class Heavy Cruiser is one of the oldest ships still in service,
(together with the older Starfuries) they were all built before the Minbari
War. Not many of them survived the war, but those who did have since then
been upgraded with better weapons. There is neither artificial gravity or a
rotating section on board, so the crew works in microgravity. This makes
these ships only suitable for shorter missions, while the crews on the large
Destroyers with rotating sections can stay out for longer patrols. The Heavy
Cruiser also carries Starfuries on board, and it is the smallest Earth
Alliance ship than can open their own jump-point. The Hyperion-class has
also recently been upgraded, and they now carry beam weapons and otherwise
improved weaponry.
