Deep Stand-Off Attack Ship (DSA) II

Wrath of Achilles Class

Platform Overview:
Designed as a next generation successor to the versatile and venerable Righteous Fist of Heaven platform, the Wrath of Achilles is the newest and most advanced ship class in the High Guard fleet. Incorporating many hard-learned lessons from the recently concluded Magog hostilities and the latest in Commonwealth technology, the Wrath of Achilles is the most lethal starship-killer ever built. Designed to operate with a minimum of crew and without fleet support behind enemy lines for extended periods of time, the new DSA forgoes such standard shipboard features as small craft, a Lancer contingent, and research capabilities in favor of missiles, missiles, and more missiles. The Wrath of Achilles is the most heavily armed starship launched by the Commonwealth, and her arsenal includes the latest in extreme-range kill vehicles as well as the usual suite of offensive and defensive missiles, AP guns, and PDLs. Additionally, the new DSA's distinctive, knife-like profile gives her a tiny sensor cross-section, making her nearly impossible for foes to detect. And any enemy who does manage to engage her will find that reactive shielding and cold plasma armor make the Wrath of Achilles exceptionally resilient and damage-resistant, while her lack of entry points (access to the ship is through a single, heavily fortified airlock) leaves the ship nearly invulnerable to boarding raids.

So while the recent Treaty of Antares and the advent of peace with the Magog has slowed down the new DSA construction schedule (to date, only two have been completed and launched-the Wrath of Achilles and the Balance of Judgement), should hostilities ever resume, any foes of the Commonwealth would find themselves facing the deadliest starship in the history of known space.
