Confederation Class Heavy Carrier
Built around 2 huge "Doom Ray Cannons", the Confederation Class heavy carrier is a hybrid starship design which combines the sheer firepower of a battleship with the fighter launching capability of a fleet carrier. It was a battleship that had happened to carry a fighter wing, rather then a carrier that happened to have the weaponry of a battleship. Each Confederation-Class heavy carrier can carry more fighters then a Concordia-class carrier (120 against 90) and more then triple the offensive firepower of the newest alien heavy cruisers. Fighter complement is normally 4 squadrons of light fighters, 3 squadrons of medium fighters, 2 squadrons of heavy fighters, and 1 squadron of heavy bombers.
