Rapidly developed in response to an urgent need from SATMA for a command and carrier vessel capable of deploying rapidly to extra-galactic locales as part of anti-CASM operations, the Albatross-class Origami Carrier is based on the same hull as the Peerless-class Fleet Expeditionary Carrier. Unlike its sister ships, almost a third of the Albatross-class' usable internal volume is occupied by an enlarged and extremely expensive Origami Drive Core that allows it to make point-to-point FTL jumps at unlimited range. Unlike other Origami cruisers, the Albatross-class carries a conventional Slipspace FTL drive as well, allowing for efficient short-ranged jumps around the destination. Another large percentage of the ship is occupied by a cargo bay for carrying exploration and patrol craft; this bay is more than 600m long and proportionally tall and wide (relative scale factor 1.67). Like most Alexzonyan cruisers, the Albatross-class is intended to operate independently for extended periods of time; unlike those others, the Albatross is also intended to serve as a staging area and central operating hub for a reconnaissance or expeditionary force. Its internal bay, in addition to storage and docking for smaller vessels, serves as a small shipyard and fabrications facility that is also capable of processing raw materials and asteroids to allow an Albatross to sustain itself away from home almost indefinitely. The Albatross, as befits a warship, is equipped with the usual variety of armaments; however, lacking a spinal gun, the armaments are primarily defensive in nature, and the Albatross-class is not equipped to go toe-to-toe with peer-sized capital vessels.

Developed in response to emerging supermassive Welded Siege World and Revenant Harvester threats, the Titan-class Titan Monitor is a 4.4km long gun platform designed with one objective in mind: relentlessly applying the most powerful fleet gunnery at the GRA's disposal to crack enemy super-capital ships, titans, and planetary fortresses. Equipped with 20 turreted variations of the GRA's heavy spinal weapons mounts, the sheer broadside power of the Titan-class is devastating, nearly four times as potent as the spinal mounts carried by the Meridian II-class Super Battleship despite the Titan-class being less than twice as massive.
