Our goal is to bring into focus the Legacy Era, but more specifically the Second Imperial Civil War. Play as either the tyrannical Krayt Empire, freedom-seeking Galactic Alliance Remnant or the obscure Confederation Revenant.

Description

The Longhorn-class Escort cruiser is a compact 320-meter long starship originally produced by Kuat Drive Yards. Many independent factions, fleets and governments use and construct their own modified versions. The design became very popular with the Chiss Ascendancy in particular, and they have adapted it to use Chiss weaponry and given it highly accurate long-range capabilities.
The armament contains 4 medium dual turbolaser cannons and 6 heavy dual megamasers. The turbolasers have enhanced tracking, with the capability of effectively targeting fighters and bombers at moderate ranges. The compact nature of the ship leaves little room for much more than the ship's various systems and crew space, so the Longhorn is mainly intended as a planetary-defense vessel, although it does have a fast 1.0 hyperdrive. Its normal drive systems are considerably slow however (for a ship its size). This is due in part to the heavily armored hull and most of the energy output being diverted to either the shields or the weapons. The primary strategy used with these ships is to engage in long-range combat for as long as possible, firing barrages from outside of an enemy's reach. Once the enemy has been drawn in, allied ships can then open fire on the weakened fleet. In addition to the weapons, this Longhorn variant is complemented by 4 compact Nssis-class squadrons.
It should be noted that like the Bothan Advanced Destroyer, there are multiple variants that will be encountered.
