Class: Heavy Carrier
After the terrible losses from the Battle of Earth, the Lexington-class is the new backbone of the Terran Fleet. More then a match against their Kilrathi counterparts, these heavy carriers can take critical hits in multiple launch bays and still maintain flight operations. As traditional carriers, they have minimal weapons and must rely on escorting warships for support, but they do possess a full compliment of fighters and the heaviest shielding and armor this side of a starbase. The majority of these vessels have been withheld from the front to defend Earth and the Inner Colonies.
