------------------------------------------------------------------------------
==Overview:==
     The size of many light cruisers and intended as a replacement for the
ageing Davion's as a long-range patrol ship, the Ajax class never entered
service due to the fall of the Star League and the start of the First
Succession War.

==Capabilities:==
     With a core of energy weapons and a few missiles launchers for added
punch, the Ajax class was intended to operate for extended periods of time
away from port, patrolling the space-lanes of the Federated Suns and the
Periphery border. Her main punch comes from the 8 Super-Rand heavy naval PPC's
she carries, backed up by an impressive 22 Magna-45 naval lasers. Along with 8
White Shark missile launchers, they provide surprisingly high level of
fire-power in the for and side arks, but there is a drop off towards the
stern, a weakness that could have proved fatal had the ship ever seen actual
combat.
     Built to out-gun anything she couldn't out-run, and vice-versa, the Ajax
class would have been one of the fastest in its weight range, with an
acceleration rate that wouldn't have looked out of place on a ship half the
size. This required massively oversized engines and equally large fuel
bunkers, which could also be used to supply the small craft, fighters and
DropShips it was intended to carry. Crew accommodation was relatively spacious
for the time, with two 80-meter gav-decks to off-set the affects of prolonged
voyages on the crew.

==Battle History:==
     None.

==Variants:==
     None.

==Notable Vessels & Crews:==
AFFS Ajax
AFFS Achilles
AFFS Hector

==Deployment==
     The near destruction of the satellite yard that housed the first three
prototypes by Capellan forces during the First Succession War and the loss of
technology that followed soon after put an early end to the project.
     But that is not where the story ends: the hull numbers of the prototypes
appeared on a
classified list of equipment acquired by ROM agents in 2951. This was the same
file that listed the  Conestoga class light cruiser Sulaco as an
active-service unit. It is known that their hyperdrives had been fitted and
powered up under test conditions, and there remains some speculation that the
prototypes may have been secretly moved to another location to be mothballed
until such time that the technology needed to complete them was recovered.
     This remains under investigation.
