The Anubis class heavy cruiser is the backbone of the Zektoran navy. Its heavy firepower and advanced shipboard technologies make it a prized capture for the Coalition's many enemies.
The Anubis is armed with four high energy plasma cannons mounted on gun platforms on either side of the ship. Turrets provide excellent firing arcs and Zektoran gunners are among the most accurate in the galaxy.
The "Anubis" class designation is one given by Terran Confederation intelligence given the distinctive configuration of the communications tower in the bridge section. The actual Zektoran designation is "Temua".
Due to the size and output of the ship's two main engines, its straight line acceleration is excellent. Due to the lack of compensating maneuvering jets, it has poor maneuverability giving it the nickname "the muscle car of the Zektoran navy" amongst Terran captains.
The Anubis class's other performance characteristics are less impressive. Its armor is middling. As mentioned before, its maneuverability is sub-par. Zektoran marines fight valiantly when boarded but the somewhat haphazard interior configuration of their ships favors the attackers.
Rounding out its negative points, the Anubis has very poor anti-fighter capabilities making it a favorite target amongst Terran bomber pilots.
