Navy Faction

Navy faction battleship designs.

Apocalypse Navy Issue
The Empire's inner circle of armaments manufacturers has long been proud of the expert methods utilized to harden the Navy Issue Apocalypse's armor plating and structural framework to such an amazing degree. Its shield systems are also state-of-the-art, rivalling even Caldari Prime's best. Fearsome by reputation, this is the flagship vessel of the Imperial Navy's elite wing. Not many are unfortunate enough to have ever actually met one on the field of battle, and those who do usually do not live to tell the tale.
Armageddon Navy Issue
An improved version of the feared Armageddon-class battleship, this vessel is probably one of the deadliest war machines ever built by the hand of man. Commanding one is among the greatest honors one can attain in the Amarr Empire, and suffering the fury of its turret batteries is surely the fastest way to reunite with the void.
Dominix Navy Issue
The Dominix Navy Issue's past is prominently interwoven with history, as it is known to have directly participated in the blockade and bombardment of Caldari Prime along with the Dracofeu orbital-class bomber two centuries ago. Engineered for capsule compliance, and refitted to serve more traditional combat roles, the Dominix Navy Issue today remains an extremely effective vessel and an invaluable asset in close- to mid-range battle situations.
Megathron Navy Issue
The powerful Navy Megathron has seen the end of many a threat to the Federation's security, and it's only getting better. Recent improvements in the original design have paved the way for its use in a wider field of tactical operations than originally intended, making it one of the most useful war vessels to be found anywhere.
Raven Navy Issue
The Navy Issue Raven represents the best the Caldari have to offer on the battlefield: an all-out assault vessel with tremendous electronic warfare capabilities. Commissioned by Caldari Navy Special Operations Command in YC 104 in response to a campaign of coordinated Gurista attacks which threatened to decimate the populations of several planets in the Obe system, this hefty warship has since proven its worth many times over.
Scorpion Navy Issue
This ship's design represents a radical turnaround in Caldari philosophy, particularly when compared to that of its regular Scorpion-class counterpart. Abandoning the concept of an electronic warfare platform, this vessel's creators instead set their sights on direct combat, with superior shielding and offensive capabilities giving this monster the undeniable upper hand in a vast range of tactical situations.
Tempest Fleet Issue
The Fleet Tempest originally came into being as a variant licensed by the Fleet to Core Complexion Inc., who intended to improve on the existing design with their now-famous emphasis on strong defensive capability. The designer, one Enoksur Steidentet, performed so well in this task that the Fleet promptly bought all rights to the design back from him for undisclosed billions, catapulting his small production and design corp into the major leagues.
The Thunderchild-class battleship was commissioned from Upwell by the New Eden Common Defense Initiative while the organization was still a counter-Triglavian strategy group headed by Provost Marshal Kasiha Valkanir. When EDENCOM was officially announced as the new central command for the defense of New Eden in YC122, the research and development of a line of ships capable of bearing radical new weaponry was widely rumored following Triglavian raids on Upwell development facilities. The Upwell Consortium had been working on adapting Arcing Vorton Projector weaponry to a ship-based form since the success of the technology as an anti-fleet weapon on Keepstar Citadels. The first Triglavian invasions in mid-YC121 spurred that effort on even before EDENCOM underwrote the project, providing access to scientists and engineers from the secret weapons programs of the four core empires, and even the SoCT. The Thunderchild-class was conceived as the striking fist of counter-Triglavian fleets when commissioned by EDENCOM. This battleship is oriented around maximum firepower with high-output, rapid-charging Arcing Vorton Projectors delivering a blizzard of arc strikes against squadrons of enemy ships.
Typhoon Fleet Issue
Possibly the most versatile vessel in New Eden, the Typhoon Fleet Issue is a true wonder in design adaptability. Boasting improved fittings, speed and weapon hardpoints over its standard counterpart, this ship is widely known as an invaluable wild card in any small-scale engagement.
