The Sharlin Class Warcruiser is the most powerful ship among the younger races. Its beam weapons
are very powerful, vaporizing most fighters with one quick shot, and quickly cutting into larger
ships. The Warcruiser is very large, around 1.6 km long and almost 1.9 km tall. These ships were used
with great effectiveness in the Earth-Minbari war, where they almost destroyed all of
Earth's forces. There is of course artificial gravity on board. The Warcruiser also
carries a large complement of Minbari Fighters. The ruling body of the Minbari, the
"Grey Council", has permanent residence on a special Warcruiser.
Nial Class Fighter
The Nial Class Fighter is an extremely maneuverable and fast fighter, and it is 22 meters long. Its weapons are
three beam weapons positioned around the cockpit, angled 120 degrees apart, that fire
in short bursts. The design is heavily based upon Minbari aesthetics, where the triangle
is the perfect shape, so the Minbari Fighter has a triangular shape when viewed from
ahead. The three "wings" also swept forward, in a reverse delta-wing shape.
The pilot lies down looking forward during flight.
The Minbari Flyer is a very small ship used by Minbari diplomats, couriers, and other
important persons. It only has room for one pilot, plus some cargo. Unlike the Nial Class
Fighter, the Flyer only has two wings, and it is also slightly larger. There does not
seem to be any artificial gravity on board. The Flyer also appears to be armed.
The Minbari Transport is a smaller ship, between 100 and 150 meters long. It is used for shuttling
passengers or cargo, and is capable of hovering above or landing on a planetary surface.
It also has powerful tractor beams to lift passengers or cargo from the ground if nedeed.
