Pride and Valor, Eternal
Work In Progress –HnJ
YSS Imperator is a veteran battleship with a veteran crew. Her service began at the tail end of the Second Mishhuvurthyar War and has since remained in service as one of the earlier built Sharies in the Star Army. Though she is old, she received a major refit in YE 35 following the Five-Year Review and returned to service by the end of the year.
While her time after the war has been relatively calm, in YE 39, she received transfer orders to the First Expeditionary Fleet to serve in what could only be a strike at the Empire's newest foe, the Kuvexians.
The Sharie Battleship represents the power of the Yamataian military and is a centerpiece of the Star Army's fleets. Designed for direct combat in fleet engagements, it is imposing in size and capabilities: heavily armored and heavily shielded, the Sharie carries a massive coaxial anti-fleet weapons array.
In additional to the main weapons array, the Sharie is armed with 28 super-heavy turrets, evenly distributed between its upper and lower sides. These turrets are the largest and most powerful ever installed on a Yamataian starship and are equivalent in firepower to the main cannons used on smaller starships like the Plumeria class. The Sharie's firepower coupled with it speed, heavy armor, and command capability make it ideal for facing groups of ships that outnumber it. The battleship is rounded out with generously distributed anti-fighter missile and beam turrets, torpedo launchers, and mobile weapon pods.
The Sharie is also versatile; in addition to its role as a battleship, it also serves a light carrier for starfighters and its starship docking ports allow it to serve as a supply and recreational hub for fleets. The ship's size allows it to have more crew amenities than most other starships; this, combined with its relative safety, make it a prized assignment among Star Army personnel.
The Sharie's basic design lineage comes from the enlarged shape of the Irim-class Gunship: it has a dual pronged nose and T-shaped main body (when views from the front). From above, the Sharie looks like a spear point with a notch cut from the tip. The large ship is equipped with gorgeously glowing teal engines in two clusters of three, placed on either side of a huge circular main engine. On the main body and engine rests a massive launch bay and attached runway. The ship's hull is two-toned, with some parts (especially the center) a dark gray while other parts are the standard blue-gray. As with all modern Star Army vessels, it is marked with a Star Army Hinomaru on its dorsal surface.
The Sharie is large, but is significantly smaller than the Kyoto (1905m), Takumi (2700m), Chiharu (5000m), and Katsuko (7000m) classes. Its moderate size allows for it to be produced within the construction bays of an Iori-Class Star Fortress.

There are 6 total primary docking areas (3 port 3 starboard) but smaller ships might be able to cluster up. The FTL bubbles include the docking areas so the docked ships are able to travel with the battleship while attached.
The systems used in the Sharie are the standard Star Army technology.
Protip: By tilting the battleship's nose downward, all fourteen dorsal turrets can hit the same target at once.
