The Battlewagon Galaxia

Battlewagon is a term of affection for early variants of dreadnoughts, from before the days of ship shielding and FTL capable stunt fighters.  Though obsolete by modern standards, these venerable ships are sturdy and still serve in system defense fleets, in reserve fleets and a few have even found their way into the hands of space pirates.

Lacking shielding, battlewagons rely more upon armored and reinforced hulls to absorb damage.  They also tend to have larger crew compliments and lighter armaments, compared to modern dreadnoughts.  Up to four fighters can launch each combat round, two out of each side-mounted fighter bay.  However, only one fighter can land per combat round, from the rear of the fighter bay.
