Named after a legendary monster that was the perfect engine of destruction, the Tarrasque-class Battleship is a deadly fleet combatant. Its arrays of turbolasers, ion cannons, and warheads unleash hellish power against enemy capital ships, while starfighters are picked off by its quad lasers and point defense system.
The vessel is one of four capital ships that features MMA-designed ablative armor in addition to standard armor plate. The Tarrasque-class carries 10.0 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 hundred 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.
