Kestrire'alis Reconnaissance Class

Designed in EE 004(YE-40) for the Neshaten Shukara Navy, the Kestrire'alis reconnaissance Class is a medium warships and provides the Neshaten with a decent amount of firepower, long range assault capability, protected exploration, and fighter support. It entered service in EE004.

About the Ship

The Kestrire'alis is the first medium class long range recon ship created by the Neshaten, unlike other medium class vessels the ship is intended to operate on its own and doesn't require a support fleet to operate.

The ship is equipped with less weaponry than a patrol class, but makes up for this by having a spinal weapon capable of allowing it to tangle with other ships of its weight class or potentially higher. It also has a decent sized hanger bay which allows it to carry a small squadron of fighters, but where it shines is its capability of carrying large numbers of troops and vehicles along with having a state of the art sensor system.

The vessels weaponry is located across the entire vessel. Ten broadside batteries are located on the forward starboard and portside; three medium turret mounts are located on the top, while beam blisters are located on the ships engine arch and along the bottom. Ten mark 1 anti-fighter and missile turrets are located on the top while an additional ten of each are on the bottom. Streamer turrets are located on the sides of the ship including two that are located on the rear near the engine section.

Key Features

As the Kestrire'alis was designed for long range exploration and recon, it has ample storage space for plenty of provisions while also having a rather large hanger and vehicle bay that can house a plentiful number of shuttles, fighters, and vehicles. It's storage bays also mean that it can house prefabricated structures, including those that can be used to create FOB's. The arch located on the back of the ship houses some of the vessels sensor equipment while also serving as a stabalizer in rough weather.

The ship also has a forward ram on it, used to breach the hulls of enemy vessels, although the ram also serves as a boarding apparatus due to the three 'hatches' that exist on it, one on the front of the ram, on the left, and another on the right; all of which allow for the ships marine's to board an enemy vessel. The ram can be jettisoned in the event that the enemy tries to use *it* to board the ship.

Mission Specialization

The Kestrire'alis specializes in long range reconnacise and because of this has ample storage space for supplies. It's well equipped nature means that it is capable of taking a pounding while fleeing from enemies.

It's large vehicle and hanger bay likewise means that it can carry a decent amount of shuttles and vehicles.


The Kestrire'alis resemble's a long, thin sword with a bloated rear section that has an arch that houses some of the ships weaponry. The undercarriage is where the spinal mounted cannon finds its home while the top of the vessel is where the majority of the ships weaponry is located.

History and Background

The Kestrire'alis was created in response to the failed She'tan'ora class that, instead of becoming the staple of space exploration, became a death trap for crews that manned her. The Kestrire'alis's designers made the class not only bigger, but also more well armed, faster, and capable of operating for long periods of time without the need of constant resupply. Engineers looked toward the populace for the ships actual appearance and then looked toward the opinions and advice of those who had crewed a She'tan'ora to see what this class of ship needed in order to be better.
