The Reaper class heavy cruiser, a
Hellfire Lite" - a cheaper, smaller, more readily produced warship than the devastating Hellfire battlecruiser.
About this creation
The Reaper class was created not long after the Hellfire battlecruiser proved its worth in combat. However, the Hellfire class was prohibitively expensive to produce, and the Alliance admiralty badly wanted a ship of similar potential, only not quite as tough to crank out; the result was the Reaper class heavy cruiser.
Designed to supplement the Hellfire class, the Reaper is a capable combatant in its own right, able to engage anything that comes close to matching it with ease.
