Yaki "Kyoto" TL Class Light Carrier

Postby Hieronymos » Thu Feb 26, 2009 9:51 pm

Yaki Kyoto TL Class Light Carrier:
Price: MCr. 37.913 [33% more than Mammoth’s: above avg]
Speed: 117.2-->142.6m/s [10m/s less than her 3R speed= still fast as hell]
Acceleration: 12-->14.0m/s2 [her 3R accel.]
Steering: 0.6-->0.8rpm [her 3R steering]
Shields: 2
Shield Type: 1Gj [=2Gj total: about 30% of an M1’s]
Shield Generator: 4,800 [her 3R spec]
Hull: 120k [25% below avg.]
Hardpoints: 6: Front/Back; R/L; U/D.
Weapons: 12:
Front/Back 2x: Yaki M7 Back: IRE,PAC,HEPT,CIG,MD,PRG,IonD,EBC,FAA;
L/R/U/D 2x: D_AKYON: IRE,PAC,MD,PRG,PBE,A-kyon.
Laser Charge: 12,250 [her 3R spec; avg.]
Laser Recharge: 180 [her 3R spec; avg.]
Cargo: 19,500 ST [her 3R spec; far below avg]
Hangar: 22
Marines: 20
Missles: same as Ryu

Ship Description: “The criminal faction known as the Yaki have recently unveiled their extremely fast new hybrid TL, the Kyoto Light Carrier. Technically a TL, the Kyoto is far more Carrier than hauler, and is currently the fastest such vessel of either class in the galaxy. Rumored to’ve been a custom design for a renowned Yaki chieftan known only as “Serial Kicked”, the Kyoto is the ultimate mobile raiding platform, being able to outrun all but the fastest Corvettes, as well as many heavy fighters. Her huge cargo bay is rarely used for station deployment, but rather for keeping her raiders provisioned, and storing captured booty. Docking twenty-two fighters in her roomy hangar, Kyoto class vessels can also externally dock M6, TS and TP class vessels for resupply and personnel transfer. Vulnerable only to attacks from massed medium fighters or Split Corvettes, the Kyoto class uses speed and excellent shielding as her main defenses, and carries only light defensive weaponry. The Yaki have recently retrofitted the Kyoto class as well as the older Ryu classes, installing mobile manufacturing facilities for their Analysis, Hacking, Sniper and Spy drones. This makes Yaki TL's mobile covert operations bases, greatly expanding the pirate faction's already formidable black ops capabilities.”

COMMENTS: Kyoto with minor tweaking for TC.

Done: Complete as per above specs.

Yaki Heian TM Class Fighter Transport

Postby Hieronymos » Wed Apr 08, 2009 9:06 pm

Yaki Heian TM Class Fighter Transport: uses Deadly's new 4-bay TM model http://www.flatrock.org.nz/wolf/images/ ... xShips.jpg http://www.flatrock.org.nz/wolf/images/ ... xShips.jpg
Price: Cr. 657,233 [50% more than Magnetar TM’s: above avg]
Speed: 137.2-->162.2m/s [sl. faster than Chokaro TM; very fast]
Acceleration: 12-->14.0m/s2 [...]
Steering: 1.9-->2.8rpm [sl. better than Chokaro]
Shields: 3
Shield Type: 200Mj [=600Mj total: 50% better than avg.]
Shield Generator: 925 [Chokaro's]
Hull: 18.3k [25% above avg.]
Hardpoints: 3: L/R/D.
Weapons: 6:
L/R/D 2x: D_AKYON: IRE,PAC,MD,PRG,PBE,A-kyon. [note: as I can't see what DD's done with her turret-wise, the number/location of her turrets is open]
Laser Charge: 4,750 [Yaki Tonbo's spec; M4+ avg.]
Laser Recharge: 82 [Yaki Tonbo's spec; M4+ avg.]
Cargo: 1,600 XL [avg]
Hangar: 4 Internal; 1 External
Marines: 10 (for resupply)
Missles: same as Washi Hauler M6

Ship Description: “The criminal faction known as the Yaki have recently unveiled their replacement for the fast, but otherwise lackluster Chokaro TM. The new Heian TM class Fighter Carrier is an effective new design that uses speed and excellent shielding as her main defenses, and carries only light defensive weaponry. Capable of carrying four fighters internally, and a fourth externally, the Heian has an average sized cargo bay plus the usual TM-class crew quarters for a marine squad and her fighter crews. Her three turrets can mount light weaponry, including Alpha-kyons and Mass Drivers, providing solid anti-missle and anti-light fighter capabilities. Using the Yaki Tonbo M4+'s weapons energy generation system provides Heian with weapons energy endurance not found in most other TM class vessels. Designed for rapid insertion and extraction of Yaki fighter flights into "hot" operational areas, the New Heian class leaves other Commonwealth TM class ships far behind.”

COMMENTS: DD's new 4-bay TM as an Improved Vanilla Yaki TM. Don't know if it's possible to have both internal and external docking on a TM class vessel. With her speed, kyon turrets, & heavy missle capabilities, this baby should be fun to play with.

Done: Complete as per above specs.

Yaki Sai M4+

Postby Hieronymos » Thu Apr 09, 2009 8:41 pm

Yaki "Sai" M4+ Class Medium Fighter: http://www.flatrock.org.nz/wolf/images/ ... D_Sai1.jpg http://www.flatrock.org.nz/wolf/images/ ... D_Sai2.jpg
Price: MCr. 1.3243 [105% more than Solano M4+'s: avg]
Speed: 137.2-->219.9m/s [3R spec]
Acceleration: 23.22m/s2 [3R spec]
Steering: 22.-->30.89rpm [3R spec]
Shields: 3
Shield Type: 25Mj [=75Mj total: 50% better than avg.]
Shield Generator: 825 [~50% above avg: Susanowa Proto's spec]
Hull: 4.158k [45% below avg.; reflects her dispersed hull structure]
Hardpoints: 2: Main; Back.
Weapons: 7:
Main 6x: IRE,PAC,MD,PRG,EBC,PBE,PBG
Back 1x: D_AKYON: IRE,PAC,MD,PRG,PBE,A-kyon.
Laser Charge: 4,750 [Yaki Tonbo's spec; M4+ avg.]
Laser Recharge: 82 [Yaki Tonbo's spec; M4+ avg.]
Cargo: 138 L [avg]
Hangar: 0
Marines: 0
Missles: same as Yaki Tonbo M4+

Ship Description: “Fighter Attrition rates on high value raids have resulted in a new, strongly defensive M4+ class Medium Fighter design called "Sai", by the criminal faction known as the Yaki. Recently unveiled in a series of spectacular Nividium convoy raids along the Paranid Main, the Sai is a fast, exceptionally well-shielded design that is slated to eventually replace the somewhat inferior Tonbo series. In typical Yaki fashion, Sai can carry a wide range of Commonwealth weaponry--not normally found on medium fighters, and also sports a light back turret. Her back turret mounts light weaponry, including Alpha-kyons and Mass Drivers, providing solid anti-missle and some anti-light fighter capabilities. Using the Yaki Tonbo M4+'s weapons energy generation system and the Yaki Susanowa Raider M3's shield generator has greatly reduced production and development costs for the Sai, making her not only extremely effective, but affordable as well. ”

COMMENTS: Sai reinvented as M4+ for TC. Very defensive design, with defensive capacity of an agile M3, but offensive laser capacity of a standard M4+, but with far more weapon choice.

Done: Complete as per above specs.

Shuriken M4

Postby Hieronymos » Thu Apr 09, 2009 10:13 pm

Yaki "Shuriken" M4 Class Medium Fighter: http://www.flatrock.org.nz/wolf/images/ ... riken1.jpg http://www.flatrock.org.nz/wolf/images/ ... riken2.jpg
Price: MCr. 0.88291 [70% of Solano M4+'s: avg.]
Speed: 177.2-->216.2m/s [sl. slower than Sai's]
Acceleration: 21.72m/s2 [avg]
Steering: 40.-->50.09rpm [avg.]
Shields: 4
Shield Type: 25Mj [=100Mj total: super-high= OTAS Eurus's spec]
Shield Generator: 375 [avg: ]
Hull: 3.855k [above avg.]
Hardpoints: 1: Main.
Weapons: 6:
Main 4x: IRE,PAC,MD,PRG,EBC,PBE,FBL,EMPC,EEMPC,A-kyon
Laser Charge: 2,750 [avg.]
Laser Recharge: 60 [avg.]
Cargo: 98 M [avg]
Hangar: 0
Marines: 0
Missles: same as Yaki Tonbo M4+

Ship Description: “Stolen from a high-security OTAS Corporation R & D facility, and reverse-engineered and redesigned, the OTAS Eurus M4 is now fielded as the premier new M4 class fighter of the criminal faction known as the Yaki. Called "Shuriken", this extraordinary new Medium Fighter is intended to replace the defensively weak Raijin M4 series. Shuriken is just as fast as most Raijin variants--but unlike them, has a whopping 100Mj of shield strength--greater than many heavy fighters. Capable of carrying a wide range of Commonwealth weaponry, as well as Terran Plasma Cannon weaponry, Shuriken can also mount the deadly Alpha-kyon weapon. Unlike the Eurus, the Shuriken does not have a back turret for anti-missle defense; 'nor is she quite as fast as Eurus. She also only has four fixed-frontal weapon slots. Moderately priced under 900k, the high-endurance, defensively oriented Shuriken will significantly expand Yaki tactical capabilities.”

COMMENTS: Shuriken reinvented as M4 for TC. A sl. twist on the OTAS Eurus M4, She's a very defensive design, with defensive capacity greater than an agile M3, but offensive laser capacity less than a standard M4, but with far more weapon choice.

Done: Complete as per above specs. You spec'd 6 lasers in one place, and then 4 lasers in another :lol: Not a problem, since there are 4 Gatling laser bodies located on "outriggers", I went with 4. Given the shielding, powerful loadout, and the level of laser energy...4 should be about right. I'll need to check and make sure I got the right laser path, as there are two per Gatling laser, but only one will cause it to rotate.

Yaki Wakizashi M3+ VHF

Postby Hieronymos » Thu Apr 09, 2009 10:49 pm

Yaki "Wakizashi" M3+ Class Very Heavy Fighter: http://www.flatrock.org.nz/wolf/images/ ... zashi1.jpg http://www.flatrock.org.nz/wolf/images/ ... zashi2.jpg
Price: MCr. 5.742 [95% of Eclipse M3+'s: avg]
Speed: 137.2-->190.4m/s [faster than Tenjin's 182m/s]
Acceleration: 16.42m/s2 [avg.]
Steering: 15.-->22.6rpm [below avg.]
Shields: 4
Shield Type: 25Mj [=100Mj total: above avg.]
Shield Generator: 1,350 [avg: Tenjin's spec]
Hull: 15.458k [above avg.]
Hardpoints: 3: Main; Back; Front.
Weapons: 11:
Main 8x: IRE,PAC,HEPT,MD,PRG,IonD,EBC,PBE,PBG,EMPC,EEMPC,MAAM,A-kyon
Back 2x: D_AKYON: IRE,PAC,MD,PRG,PBE,A-kyon.
Front 1x: D_AKYON: IRE,PAC,MD,PRG,PBE,A-kyon.
Laser Charge: 8,250 [Tenjin's spec; avg.]
Laser Recharge: 215 [Tenjin's spec; avg.]
Cargo: 330 L [avg]
Hangar: 0
Marines: 0
Missles: same as Yaki Tenjin M3+

Ship Description: “The Wakizashi M3+ is a dangerous new Very Heavy Fighter design of the criminal faction known as the Yaki. Produced just after the Yaki Tenjin M3+, with whom she shares many components, including shield and weapons generators, Wakizashi was created to replace the disappointing Yaki Susanowa M3 variants, that while fairly fast, were undergunned and undershielded for Yaki craft. Far more powerful than the Susanowa class, Wakizashi has stronger shield strength than Tenjin as well as being slightly faster. Wakizashi also has strong hull armoring, plus fore and aft defensive turrets. All of these features endow Wakizashi with truly superlative defensive capabilities. Offensively, she can mount an incredibly wide array of energy weapons and advanced missle varieties--including some Kha'ak and Terran weaponry--along with strong weapons generators, all of which give her enormous tactical versatility. Despite her high price, relatively sluggish helm and poor acceleration, this powerful design is an almost perfect VHF.”

COMMENTS: Wakizashi re-spec'd for TC..Can compete with all the new "prototype" M3+ variants.

Done: Complete as per above specs.

Yaki Naginata M6+

Postby Hieronymos » Sat May 02, 2009 4:49 am

Yaki "Naginata" M6+ Class Very Heavy Corvette:
Price: MCr. 28.74525 [75% of Deimos's: above avg.?]
Speed: 71-->126.8m/s [her 3R speed= still pretty fast for her size]
Acceleration: 6-->12.0m/s2 [her 3R accel.]
Steering: 3.5-->5.5rpm [her 3R steering]
Shields: 2
Shield Type: 1Gj [=2Gj total: far above avg.]
Shield Generator: 4,600 [above avg.]
Hull: 90k [avg.? for her size]
Hardpoints: 7: Main; Front; L/R; U/D; Back.
Weapons: 18:
Main 4x: HEPT,CIG,PBC*,IonD,IonPG,IonC,ISR,IBL,G-kyon*
Front 4x: Boron M6 Turret: IRE,PAC,HEPT,CIG,Repair?,PRG,IonD,IonPG,EBC,PBE,PBG
L/R 2x: Boron M6 Turret: IRE,PAC,HEPT,CIG,Repair?,PRG,IonD,IonPG,EBC,PBE,PBG
Up/Down 1x: Yaki M7 Back: IRE,PAC,HEPT,CIG,MD,PRG,IonD,EBC,FAA;
Back 6x: D_AKYON: IRE,PAC,MD,PRG,PBE,A-kyon.
Laser Charge: 31,550 [avg. for her size?]
Laser Recharge: 685 [avg. for her size]
Cargo: 1,966--->3,885 XL [her 3R spec; avg. for her size]
Hangar: 2 Internal
Marines: 5 + Boarding Pods enabled
Missles: same as Akurei Hauler + Sting, Needle, Thorn

Ship Description: “The Naginata Very Heavy Corvette is an extremely dangerous M6 class design produced by the criminal faction known as the Yaki. Nearly twice the size of most conventional corvettes, Naginata was specifcally created to destroy Commonwealth corvettes, including even the formidable the Paranid Hyperion Vangaurd, which she clearly outclasses in almost every respect. Naginata, like all modern Yaki designs is able to carry an extremely wide range of often captured weaponry. In her fixed-frontal battery she can carry heavy weaponry such as Boron Ion Cannons, Pirate Incindiary Bomb Launchers, and even Kha'ak Gamma Kyons which makes her a threat to enemy frigates and capital ships. Her dorsal and ventral turrets can mount Flak cannons for fighter defense; and she carries more light and medium weaponry in her remaining turrets. Reasonably fast, very well shielded, and with hangar space for two fighters, the Yaki Naginata is an expensive raider that is absolutely without equal in her class.”

COMMENTS: Nagi tweaked for TC. Possibly overgunned..but what the hell. With turret groups re-assigned, so that her Up/Down hardpoints become 1x FAA capable--still the best (conventional) anti-fighter weapon in the game. Her back (up and downward facing) light turrets are set for D_AKYON..sweet. Her main battery might need to be reduced to 3x..but we'll see. Also note that she's got 'pods enabled: slight perk.

Done: Complete as per above specs.

Price: MCr.90.759 [105% of Zeus's price=sl. above avg.]
Speed: 103.4m/s [enables her to escape most big ships]
Steering: 0.90 [average]
Hull: 300k [below average]
Shields: 4
Shield Type: 1Gj [total 4Gj=sl. below average] (1Gj shields recharge rate is about same as 2Gj size = do the math!)
Shield Gen (Mw): 8,200 [same as Hoshi's]
Turrets (hardpoints): 6 [Front/L/R/Back/Up/Down]
Guns: 18
Front 6x: Boron M2RILE: HEPT,CIG,PPC,IonD,IonPG,IonC,GC,IBL;
Back 4x: Yaki M7RILE: HEPT,CIG,MD,CFA,PBC*,IonD,IonPG,EBC,FAA,IBL.
L/R 2x: Boron M2RILE: HEPT,CIG,PPC,IonD,IonPG,IonC,GC,IBL;

Hangar: 30 [Hoshi has 40; Shuri has 60]
Marines: 20: M2's complement + BoardingPods
Missles: same as Shuri's + Sting, Needle, Thorn

Ship Description: "The Yaki Musashi Capture Carrier is the extremely formidable new hybrid fleet carrier fielded by the criminal faction known as the Yaki. Musashi posesses the capacity to initiate boarding pod actions, and is thus meant for use use in a direct ship capture role. Faster than any M2 in existence, she can outfight many frigates and carriers capable of catching her. Equipped with Boarding Pods and a sizeable marine contingent, along with the ability to mount stolen Boron shield-suppression weaponry at most hardpoints give Musashi unparalleled ship capture abiliites. Her cargo bay is exceptionally roomy to support long patrols--and store captured booty! Her main weakness is her relatively small hangar, which, at 30 ships is considerably below the galactic average."

COMMENT: EDIT 5/1/09: reduced hangar size to 30, back turret to 4x, speed by 10m/s; increased price and cargo bay. Added Kha'ak missles.
EDIT 2/20/09: guns & shields reduced, laser energy reduced...pretty much everything reduced. She's now got 20 guns to Hoshi's 28 and Shuri's 20.

Done: Complete as per above specs.

Yaki "Daimyo" M2 Class Light Auxiliary Destroyer: A Hybrid M2/M1 with a Fixed-Frontal heavy battery. http://www.flatrock.org.nz/wolf/images/ ... Detail.jpg
Price: MCr.99.4037 [115% of Zeus's price=avg.]
Speed: 103.3m/s [very fast; enables her to escape most big ships]
Steering: 0.7-->1.40 [way above average]
Hull: 320k [about 30% below average]
Shields: 5
Shield Type: 1Gj [total 5Gj=far below average] (1Gj shields recharge rate is about same as 2Gj size = do the math!)
Shield Gen (Mw): 12,800 [avg.]
Turrets (hardpoints): 7 [Main; Front; L/R; Back/Up/Down]
Guns: 32
Main 10x: PPC,PBC*,PALC*IonD,IonPG,IonC,GC,IBL,G-Kyon*;
Front 6x: Boron M2RILE: HEPT,CIG,PPC,IonD,IonPG,IonC,GC,IBL;
L/R 4x: Boron M2RILE: HEPT,CIG,PPC,IonD,IonPG,IonC,GC,IBL;
Back 4x: Yaki M7RILE: HEPT,CIG,MD,CFA,PBC*,IonD,IonPG,EBC,FAA,IBL.
Up/Down 2x: Yaki M7RILE: HEPT,CIG,MD,CFA,PBC*,IonD,IonPG,EBC,FAA,IBL.
LaserEnergy: 173,400 [about 1/3 below M2 avg.]
LaserRegen: 2,800 [about 40% below M2 avg.]
Cargo: 11,650 XL [above average]
Hangar: 18 [Hoshi has 40; Shuri has 60]
Marines: 20: M2's complement
Missles: same as Shuri's + Sting, Needle, Thorn

Ship Description: "The Daimyo M2 is a Light Auxiliary Destroyer variant of the Yaki Musashi M1 Carrier. Intended to give the criminal faction known as the Yaki some heavy capital ship firepower until such time as the resources exist for a proper M2 replacement for the obsolete Akuma class, Daimyo is a very fast but somewhat weaker compromise. Faster than any known M2, and some M7's as well, her speed enables her to outrun anything she cannot outfight. While she does retain a small fighter hangar with space for eighteen fighters, the bulk of her aft cargo/hangar space has been converted to house expanded weapon and shield generators. Unique among known M2's, much of her offensive power is carried in a heavy fixed-frontal battery. Like most Yaki ships, she is fitted to carry an unusually broad array of captured and reverse engineered weaponry. Her cargo bay is spacious to support long patrols, but is nothing like Musashi's. Best used to prey upon enemy carriers and frigates, the Daimyo's relatively weak shielding and weapons energy means that engages other destroyers at her peril."

COMMENTS: Not a bad proposal, if I do say so myself. Her fixed-frontal main battery could turn out to be a big mistake..considering she's an M2. Fast and fairly manueverable for an M2--but still an M2. She'll need some superficial texturing changes, and or other cosmetic touch ups, to visually distinguish her from Musashi.

Done: Complete as per above specs. Interesting concept. We'll need to test maneuverability, otherwise front lasers will be useless. Also question short range lasers up front (IonD), as the front spikes on the model won't necessarily let you get close enough to use them.

[u][b]Yaki "Amataresu" TP Class Transport[/b][/u]:

Postby Hieronymos » Sat May 02, 2009 8:42 pm

Yaki "Amataresu" TP Class Transport: http://www.flatrock.org.nz/wolf/images/ ... aresu3.jpg
Price: MCr. 1.812 [125% of Hermes Hauler's; above avg.]
Speed: 197.5m/s [10m/s less than her 3R speed= still fast as hell]
Acceleration: 3.56m/s2 [her 3R accel.]
Steering: 3.5rpm [her 3R steering]
Shields: 4
Shield Type: 25Mj [=100Mj total: her 3R spec; above avg.]
Shield Generator: 400 [her 3R spec; far below average]
Hull: 32k [sl. above avg.]
Hardpoints: 3: Main; Up; Back (?? I think that was it).
Weapons: 6:
Main 2x: IRE,PAC,HEPT,MD,PRG,IonD,EBC;
Up/Back 2x: D_AKYON: IRE,PAC,MD,PRG,PBE,A-kyon.
Laser Charge: 2,250 [way above avg.]
Laser Recharge: 20 [M5-level; about twice avg.]
Cargo: 490 L [her 3R spec; far below avg]
Hangar: 0
Marines: 10
Missles: same as Ryu + Needle, Sting, & Thorn

Ship Description: “The Amateresu class TP, named after a mythical Terran goddess, is the passenger transport of the criminal faction known as the Yaki. The Amateresu is extremely fast, well-shielded, and fairly well armed, with a rear turret and superior missle capabilities, including Kha'ak varieties. Utilizing the Yaki's still secret Shield Amplification technology, this new TP can project effective shield strength greater than most other TP's currently in existence. Her main shortcomings are her small cargo hold, and her high price. The Yaki primarily use her for shipments of drugs, slaves, and other contraband, but also use her for boarding actions, for which her excellent speed and shielding make her very well qualified.”

COMMENTS: Amataresu with minor tweaking for TC.

Done: Complete as per above specs.

The Yaki "Shingen" M7/M7M Hybrid Frigate

Postby Hieronymos » Fri Jun 19, 2009 12:37 am

Ship Description: “The criminal faction known as the Yaki have recently unveiled their new hybrid Missle Strike Frigate. Called "Shingen" after a legendary war leader of the ancients, this new frigate is primarily armed for long range attack with a large fixed-frontal battery of heavy energy and projectile weapons, but also carries the sophisticated targetting and acquisition hardware necessary to fire the deadly Flail Barrage Missle and the Hammer Heavy Torpedo. Not being equipped with missle turrets, Shingen is unable to barrage fire these deadly missles like other missle frigates, which considerably limits her usefulness as a missle support vessel. However, Yaki naval theoreticians postulate that Shingen will almost never find herself in massed fleet engagements where massive missle barrages are needed. This means that slower single-launch of the powerful Flail and Hammer will be perfectly adequate to greatly augment the anti-fighter and anti-BigShip capabilities of this excellent new design. Fairly fast for a frigate, and capable like most Yaki vessels of mounting a very wide range of foreign weaponry, the Shingen class is in other respects fairly average for an M7 class vessel.”

COMMENTS: DD's "Platypus" as a Hybrid M7/M7M. She may need more handicapping to compensate for her Flail + Hammer use (but not Tomahawk). Also, she can't use 'pods. As a Jager, compared to Naga, her lasers are Main: 8; L/R: 2x = same as Thresher....While Naga has Main=10,L/R=3.

Done: Complete as per above specs. - Also, I forgot all about the old Platypus...I guess I should finish that one off as well :oops:

Spec Proposal: Yaki "Shingen" M7

Postby Hieronymos » Wed Sep 23, 2009 11:41 pm

Proposal for DD's newest model, M7 currently styled Yaki Shogun.
Flying about the model last night looking for turrets and weapons apertures, I found:
a) 2 Big Turrets L & R top-front [L/R??];
b) 8 small front-facing wpn barrels on her bow [Main]
c) 2 Quad (4x) small turrets on her bow [Front?]
d) 2 Big Turrets L + R top-back [Back?]
e) 1 Big Turret bottom center-mass [Down]
...if there were others, couldn't find 'em. Thus:

Yaki "Shingen" M7 Strike Frigate: http://www.flatrock.org.nz/wolf/images/ ... hogun1.jpg Fast M7 (to outrun pursuit) for Yaki hit-and-run tactics. Powerful main battery, with medium-heavy turret support, and Flail missle capability.

Ship Description: “Another revolutionary new design from the criminal faction known as the Yaki, the deadly new Shingen class M7 Strike Frigate is fast, extremely well shielded, and carries a powerful fixed-frontal battery of heavy weapons. Unlike any other conventional M7, Shingen carries the sophisticated targetting equipment necessary to use the deadly Flail Barrage Missle. While not equipped with missle turrets--and thus not able to launch multi-missle barrages like a true missle frigate, Shingen's conventional missle launcher can still fire a steady stream of Flails, giving her exceptional long range fighter suppression capabilities. Shingen's five heavy turrets can mount advanced beam weaponry or medium-range conventional weapons like ISR's or IonPG's. A single batttery of two quad "light flak" small calibre weapons on her bow gives her some point defense capabilities. Competitively priced with the two older Yaki M7 classes--the Akurei and Kariudo--Shingen is vastly superior to both. Her main weakness is a comparatively weak weapons generator, which can seriously hamper her effectiveness in extended combat situations unless an appropriate mix of non-energy lasers are used.”

COMMENTS: speed, shielding, maneuverability, hull strength, (plus a beefy shield generator) are her main defensive assets. A Main battery of GC's with FAA's or Beams in her big turrets...will (hopefully) balance out her wimpy weapons power. Her Flail capability is extremely useful..but she can't use 'pods, and so remains useless for boarding ops.
Her avg. sized weapons generator encourages *hint* use of GC's in her Main battery to compensate.
Not as much of a Jager as Naga, Shingen has higher survivability, due to her superior shielding, speed, smaller hull cross-section (i.e. smaller target)...

Done: Complete as per above specs.
