Defiant Assault Gunship

The crowning achievement of the Pyrosa Hive of militant Verpine rebels, this
ship is as deadly as it is experimental. The Pyrosa Hive has long considered
their brethren within the Roche Hive to be much too complacent in regard to
the Imperial threat and have thrown their support behind the infamous Justice
Action Network. Turning their formidable technical expertise to producing a
true warship to assault the Empire with, the Pyrosa Hive has produced one of
the deadliest warships ever built. Mounting immensely powerful pulse laser
cannons and the highly experimental (and unstable) hypermatter torpedo, this
ship safely outguns anything short of a star destroyer. Backing up this formidable
main armament are four heavy particle streamers which fire continuous beams of
high-energy charged particles which disrupt enemy shielding and rip deeply into
armor plating. Lastly are a pair of aft-mounted proton torpedo launchers specially
modified for incredible range and accuracy. The ship also carries some of the
heaviest armor and shielding ever mounted on a vessel this size. Along with a
massive engine array and relatively huge power core, this little vessel would
stand out like a beacon on sensor packages if not for the final innovation added
to this ship, an advanced stealthing system which makes the vessel practically
invisible visually and on sensors while active. When inactive the massive power
core does indeed stand out like a luma-flare, but while stealthed the vessel is
nearly impossible to track. Unfortunately none of its weapons can fire while the
stealth system is active, but this is considered a small price to pay for the
vast advantages the system provides. Thus far there is only one of these ships,
the cost for building it being truly astronomical. Just one Defiant-Class gunship
costs fully half of a fully-stocked Imperator-Class Star Destroyer!
