The Ares-class Cruiser fills the role of a Victory-class Star Destroyer or an Assault Frigate. It is meant to provide heavy support to another ship while retaining enough combat capability to fight by individually or serve itself as a flagship. It can also serve a secondary purpose as an interdictor; the ship carries pulse mass mines similar to those used by the Hapans.

This is one of four capital ships that features MMA-designed ablative armor in addition to standard armor plate. The Ares-class carries 2.5 meters of superdense ablative material, allowing the ship to weather considerable damage before sustaining hull breach and giving damage control parties extra time to restore shield generators. The density and thickness of the armor can withstand several dozen turbolaser hits before burning away to reveal more standard armor plate underneath.

As with all MMA-produced combat vessels, the ship features the innovative harjel repair system, a set of backup shields rated at one-third the power of the ship's standard shields, and the new PDS in addition to the ship's standard weaponry and defenses.
