The Heavy Escort Carrier is a Vice Admiral (Tier 5) level Federation Carrier. It contains one hangar bay capable of launching small crafts and also comes equipped with a [Console - Universal - Torpedo Point Defense System].


Variants[edit]

Armitage class[edit]

Armitage class
Armitage patch.png

The Armitage class is a Heavy Escort Carrier. These vessels were designed to fit the original role meant for the Akira class: that of a small carrier-escort hybrid. Its appearance features low-slung, forward-swept pylons and long, tapered nacelles. Its saucer is built around a thick central spine that contains the deflector and elevates the bridge above the split hull. Its single, forward-facing hangar is equipped with a wing of Peregrine Fighters by default. A battery of cannon aperatures is concentrated in the nose, above and to the sides of the deflector dish. The Armitage is longer than even the Patrol Escort (though it has the same amount of crew). If made to use components from standard Heavy Escorts such as the Akira or Thunderchild its size will shrink to match. Torpedo and turret fire comes from the top-mounted launcher in the rear pylon.

Akira class[edit]

Akira class

The Akira class Heavy Escort closely resembles the Enterprise from the TV series Star Trek: Enterprise. The reason is the Akira was used as partially for inspiration when the NX-01 was being designed[1]. It is the most popular of the three Heavy Escort classes. Ships of the class include the U.S.S. Kelvin and U.S.S. Thunderchild (NCC-63549).

Oslo class[edit]

Oslo class
The Oslo class Heavy Escort is an upgraded and modified version of the earlier Norway class ship. It shares the same nacelle design as the Nova Class Science Vessel.

Zephyr class[edit]

Zephyr class
The Zephyr class Heavy Escort is an upgraded and modified version of the earlier Steamrunner class ship.

Thunderchild class[edit]

Thunderchild class
The Thunderchild class Heavy Escort is a tribute to the U.S.S. Thunderchild (NCC-63549) which engaged the Borg in Sector 001. This class is unlocked by purchasing the Heavy Escort Refit for 1000 Zen small icon.png from the C-Store.

Performance[edit]

With the same turn rate similar to the Vice Admiral Multi-Vector Advanced Escort, the Armitage class is well suited to delivering frontal-fire using Dual Heavy Cannons and Torpedo Launchers. It can act as a torpedo boat capable of presenting large torpedo volleys to the front or rear arcs; combined with the Photon Torpedo Point Defense System, this can create significant burst damage against multiple targets.

In addition, this class has the crew count of the Tier 5 Fleet Patrol Escort Refit, the console layout of the Tactical Escort Retrofit, and a Lt. Commander Engineering Bridge Officer. These combine to make this class more capable of surviving sustained fire than other escorts of this rank.

A single hangar bay allows the Armitage class flexibility to suit its current mission. Fighters can be equipped for additional DPS, shuttles for interception and debuffs against incoming enemies, shield repair drones for additional staying power, or Runabouts to lock down enemies.

T5-U[edit]

This vessel can be upgraded to T-5U status at any ship selector for one Starship Upgrade Requisition per account. It gains an additional tactical console slot, increase shieldings, increase hull point, and four level of ship mastery.

Abilities[edit]

The Heavy Escort Carrier comes with built-in abilities that cannot be ranked up, and abilities that are based on the craft loaded into the hangar bay.

This ship can launch attack wings of Peregrine Fighters in its standard configuration, though other small crafts can be equipped to be launched. The carrier can also give commands to those craft to order them to attack or defend selected targets.
