Sharlin Class Warcruiser
Click for top of page
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
Click for top of page
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.
[Flyer]
Flyer

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.
