Unique Military Vessels used by the Imperium

TNC - Throne

Width: 3 Kilometers
Height: 2.6 Kilometers
Crew Compliment: 24000
Armament: 800 Heavy Particle Projection Cannons, 1600 Pulse Laser Turrets, 480 Heavy Anti-Ship Beams, 48 Large Anti-Ship Missile Bays [400 Missiles per Barrage, 8000 Missiles each, 120 Megaton], 2000 Laser Flak Turrets

480 H-ASB | 120 Port/Starboard | 120 Above/Below
48 L-ASMB | 12 Port/Starboard | 12 Above/Below
2000 L-FT | 500 Port/Starboard | 500 Above/Below
Notes: The largest ship the Imperium has ever (partially) constructed, the TNC - Throne is the personal command ship of the Military Overseer, and Flagship of the First Fleet. For this reason, it has only once left the New Harron System, in order to test its Subspace Drives. Due to a combination of poorly-thought-out policy regarding it, and the sheer scale of it, the ship is technically 'operationally-incomplete'. It serves primarily as an experience project for Imperial Engineers and Technicians.

TCO - Ashes of Eternity
Length: 1.2 Kilometers
Width: 600 Meters
Height: 400 Meters
Crew Compliment:
Armament: 60 Anti-Ship Beams, 80 Particle Projection Cannons, 320 Pulse Laser Turrets, 400 Point Defense Beam
Armour: 16 Meter Capital Ship Armour, 4 Layer Hardened Capital Ship Shields
FTL System: Subspace Drive
Subsystems: Full Sensor Array, Hyperpulse Generator, Civil Oversight Mobile Headquarters
Weapon Breakdown:
60 ASB | 25 Port/Starboard | 25 Above/Below | 10 Forward

320 PLT | 160 Port/Starboard | 160 Above/Below
400 PDB | 100 Port/Starboard | 100 Above/Below
Notes: The TCO - Ashes of Eternity, is the personal command vessel of the Civil Overseer, and officially organized in the First Fleet. The ship, while heavily armed, was not designed with Combat in mind, and fails as a Battleship when considering comparable Capital Ships in the Imperial Navy.

Notes: The TDV - Citadel, being the only purely diplomatic vessel within the Imperium, is almost entirely unarmed, and relies on an escort of First Fleet Vessels in the event of conflict. The vessel was commissioned by Diplomatic Overseer Alexander Markhov, on his appointment to the position, and serves as a mobile Imperial Embassy, and the center of Diplomatic Oversight operations. Vessel also contains private quarters for Overseer Markhov and Daughter.

The Arm of Orion, is an attempted Modernization of the Rassvet Class Dreadnought. It has undergone several attempts at this throughout its operational life, and its current state has proven to be most effective in increasing the effectiveness of the Frame. Due to introduction of Refit Rassvet Dreadnoughts, the vessel has undergone further modification, to further utilize Reactor Systems.

The UTS - Silent Song, while officially registered as an In-Service Imperial Vessel, was initially constructed, and operated by the Union of Tinfect Continental States, and served as the command ship of their Interplanetary Fleet, which, at its height, consisted of 7 Ships, 5 of which were armed Shuttlecraft. Lost during the Collapse, it was located in high-orbit of Hathien, unpowered, and lacking oxygen, but otherwise undamaged. Since then it has been restored, and now sits in an Orbital Dock, from which it has not been removed for 70 Years, and currently serves as a Pre-Imperial Museum. Its sister ship, the UTS - Lunar Eye, has not been located.
