CharacteristicsEdit

"Why aren't there any Ion Cannons installed??"
"With those Driver Cannons, you wont need them!"
---Weapons manufacturer to Shipwright on the LongSword


The LongSword is special above all Blue Wave Ships when the program to restore old ships to new ones began, for instead of the usual armament of Ion Cannons and Turbolaser combo, the shipwrights placed in 16 heavy Mass Driver Cannons that can punch through shields and bring in devastating results. Combined with the timed bombardment of the Turbolasers and the heavy concussion missiles, the LongSword was meant to be a heavy long range attack vessel, designed to pummel the enemy from afar, while its Mass Driver cannons reload and fire again, it was an effective tactic to fire volleys of Mass Driver Cannons on the enemy rather than the usual fire-at-will attack plan because a combined fire of the 16 360-Degree guns can prove far deadlier than varied fire. Their heavy 8.5 kiloton slugs can make some very troubling and disturbing holes on the enemy ships, and have been known to cause a breach if fired at the command bridge. There is also the advantage of having chaff warhead countermeasure in case the enemy combatant uses Torpedoes or any similar warhead against this long-range attack destroyer.


WeaknessEdit

However powerful it may be from afar, the LongSword is quite weak against other capital ships against a one-on-one attack, facing the enemy ship along sides meant that only half the Turbolasers and laser turrets are able to be fired effectively at the enemy ship. There is also the fact that the Mass Driver Cannons are meant for long range and not a full out brawl The ship could be destroyed easily by the enemy ship by getting too close, so the shields had to be effectively surrounding the Mass Cannons at all times.
