Product of the Fleet 2300 Program, the Empire-class battleship was the most powerful warship built by the United States of America when The War came upon us all. Three spinal-mounted gravitic cannons backed up by six forward anti-ship lasers comprised the main armament that made her such a formidable foe. Fifty-eight flank-mounted capital missile launchers and over one hundred swarm tubes on the bow could overload entire squadron point defense networks. Two fighter squadrons and a full Marine battalion simply gave the Empire even more ways of hurting the enemy. She was simply the best American battleship when The War began and at least one Empire served in every victorious fleet until Wars End.
