   Comments: The Arakoine-class strike cruiser is specifically designed for ground support and surface bombardment. It has large missile resources available, as well as both meson gun and particle accelerator weaponry. The ship is supported by it large phalanx of fighter craft. These fighters are capable of close defense for the ship, and of ground support in combat.
    The strike cruiser is not capable of fuel skimming itself, and depends on its auxilliaries and escorts for the fuel scoop process. It does carry on-board fuel purification plants for the processing of fuel.
