   Comments: The Giimgekaruuka class battleship is tried and true battleship, able to meet the enemy line-of-battle and destroy the opponent. This class has a limitation which was requested by the Admiralty when it was originally designed - it only has jump-3, which limits the classes reaction to invasion. Intended as a part of the Imperial Defense fleet, it was assigned to the more volitile sections of the Imperial frontier.
