Primus Class Battlecruiser
Click for top of page
The Primus Class Battlecruisers are the main large capital ships of the Centauri Republic. The design is fairly old, but it still packs quite a punch. The Primus is around 1.5 km long, although the tail fin and front antennaes take up signficant portion of the length. These Battlecruisers are nearly the same size as Narn G'Quan Class Starcruisers, and their weapons power is similar. The ship also has a jump-point generator, and there is artificial gravity on board. Three versions of this class has been observed: The emperors royal liner (a heavily modified Battlecruiser), the flagship "Valerius" (a luxury version), and the normal Primus Class.

Vorchan Class Warcruiser
Click for top of page
The Vorchan Class Warcruisers are the backbone of the Centauri military, produced in great numbers. It is relatively small capital ship, only 360 meters long, and very manueverable. While these ships are not as powerful as the older and much larger Primus Class Battlecruiser, they are heavily armed for their size, and they operate in packs with deadly efficiency. The Vorchan Class has artificial gravity and tractor beam capability, and they are jump-point capable. Due to their aerodynamic shape and powerful engines, these ships are also capable of limited atmospheric flight. The main body of a Vorchan Class Warcruiser has forward pointing "wings" sticking out on the top, bottom, right, and left side. The front of the ship has a beak-like shape where the main heavy weapon is located.

The Sentri Class Fighter is a large fighter, at least 30 meters wide. It has two cannons of some unknown type, located on both side of the cockpit. The Sentri Class also have a crescent shape, with the end of the "wings" tilted down. It is a very maneuverable fighter, but it does not have any artificial gravity for the pilot.

The Centauri Shuttle is very similar to the Earth Alliance Shuttle, both in form and function. It is mostly used as a ship to ship transport, but it is also capable of long trips by itself. These shuttles, being Centauri, are fairly luxurious, but have no artificial gravity.
