A ship of the Republican Navy!

Matthew Hawk shows us one of the smaller WarShips of the Rim Worlds Republic Navy, from just before the Star League fell!

I could have posted this last night. I read it, but was underwhelmed slightly. I beleive that had to do with the class of ship itself, rather than the write-up

I like this one, all the characters were cool, and so is the ship.

see, i found the class of ship interesting, and i like how it really fit in with the character write-up. personally i really enjoyed this one
"Warriors, not war machines, are the backbone of the Hell's Horses. While others worship the BattleMech as the ultimate weapon, the men and women of this Clan see even this awesome piece of technology as the tool it is. We have held to this philosophy since the days of our first Khan, who knew that the value of the common soldier far outstripped the brute force of the BattleMech. It is one reason our Clan possesses fewer mechs than most, and has led many to underestimate our fierceness and courage. Our survival against all challengers when others have fallen proves the folly of such arrogance, and testifies to the wisdom of our founders."

Judgng by the name and the mention that the class is in 3057r, I'm assuming it's a Naga?

Got to agree, a little underwhelming. Still always good to see a new warship show up.

I don't set an example for others. I make examples of them.

The Star League thought that the Amaris dynasty was loyal, so they might have been more willing to sell.

I thoroughly enjoyed the read.  I'm not a big fan of Warships and AeroSpace combat stuff but it did give some more info on my favorite faction and a couple of fun, canon campaign hooks for those of us who like to search for lost RWR relics in the deep periphery.

Makes a nice Q-ship.

Where is Mahrah? (mentioned in Transport squad writeup)

And about the terminolog: It's consistently called "RWS" Krait, but the DropShips have a "RWRS" prefix. Deliberate distinction between the WarShip and DropShips, or mistake?

It's a Rim Worlds system that later became a Lyran system that later dropped off the map.
