RanCorp Thorne Class Battle Cruiser

The Thorne class battle cruiser is a long armoured cone of firepower. From the engines
to the bow the ship narrows llike a thorn, hence it's name sake. The only protrusions
on the craft's smooth hull are the many weapons, the sensors and comunications and the
bridge viewport inlay. The Cruiser is longer than an Imperial class star destroyer
and just as intimidating. Becuase of the rounded design coupled with the use of
turrets the weapons systems on the Thorne cruiser are incredibly flexible in their
fire ars. They can be surrounded by enemy ships and deal massive damage to all
it's tormentors. RanCorp was imensely proud that their ship design teams started
to cacth up to ground work teams that made RC famous with such war machines
as the dreaded RanCor heavy repulsor tank.

        Rounded Hull: because of it's design the weapons turrets all can hit most
