High Guard


The Righteous Fist of Heaven Class Deep Stand-off Attack Ship I is the workhorse of the High Guard combat fleet. Optimized for extreme-range destruction of hostile starships and planetary pacification missions, the Deep Stand-off Attack Ship is long on offensive capabilities and short on defensive systems. Sensor systems on the Deep Stand-off Attack Ship are dedicated almost entirely to battle management support, though they can be used in a pinch as additional extended range surveillance platforms. The Deep Stand-off Attack Ship is also equipped with Low Observability technology, making them more difficult for hostile forces to target and destroy. Deep Stand-off Attack Ships rarely operate independently and rely on battlegroup assets for their self-defense and logistics support. When detached from their primary Heavy Cruiser Battle Group, Deep Stand-off Attack Ships run in packs of two.

This class was to be phased out for the newer more advanced Siege Perilous Class Deep Stand-off Attack Ship II developed shortly before the Nietzschean Insurrection.
