The Marsden II-Class Cruiser is a large WarShip which was constructed in at the Ioto Galactic yards of Gibbs in the Lyran Commonwealth's Navy.
These cruiser were originally constructed as part the Lyran Commonwealth's attempt to rebuilt its fleet. As time progressed on, the class was offered as part of tries deals to nations who has signed treaties with the Commonwealth.

  • Wiki Editor Note: The Ship was original created for Cannonshop's Ngo Megaverse, which is multiple fan stories which have feature different tellings. The Marsden II, being mid weight class of foursome of ships used a fleet ships for the Lyran Commonwealth Navy. It first appeared in the Administrator-Series version of the Ngoverse, it is was also least seen ship of the warships created. Liam's Ghost who created the stats of the ship partipated in a content see who could make best ship for Cannonshop's universe.

Armaments and Capacities[]

The primary anti-ship, anti-fighter, and bombardment systems are sixty two naval lasers oriented towards the broadsides and aft quarters. In addition to their dual purpose capability, the use of large numbers of naval lasers allows you to tailor your bombardment towards the threat level on the ground. For particularly precision work against ground targets we have two batteries of barracuda missiles in the aft quarters, with generous magazine capacity. The ship also carries extensive imaging systems for detecting and identifying ground targets, even those under concealment. For heftier opponents, the ship has batteries of naval autocannons on the forward quarters and broadsides, plus another ten missile tubes forward for delivering something more energetic to their enemies. Anti-missile systems provide heavy all around coverage from missile attacks, with enough ammunition to engage twelve hundred missiles per direction of attack before exhausting their ready magazines.

As a base platform for combined arms units, the Ioto Galactic design offers additional passenger space for seven hundred personnel (up to three hundred of them marine infantry), as well as eight docking collars, two large gravity decks for crew and passenger comfort, and generous cargo capacity for stores and equipment. For aerospace support, we have two wings of fighters and ten small craft.

Designed fight in the thick of battle, the ship fitted with 1,980 tons of Lamellor Ferro-carbide armor. With nearly even allot of this tough armor plate, with slightly more protecting the ship's aft firing arc.

Additionally the ship offers large array of surveillance advanced communication equipment to allow it spot targets in space and in support from orbit for troops on the surface.

  • Wiki editor note: The ships were designed by Liam's Ghost, whom had accepted the challenged to bring the ship which fan writer Cannonshop had written to life. Ships designation of what type of WarShip they are is fluid. They first appear in The Administrator stories, as not often seen cruiser design that appeared in 3190s, It been noted as a Heavy Cruiser in some times. Author had stated that their designation changes depends on the faction whom sees them. In BattleTech, canon cruisers are second third largest Warship types used.
  • Wiki Editor Note: The ship unlike other ships in the Kowloon themed story alternate universes has seldom seen in action or featured as character's vessel they were either commanding or assigned to.
