Assault Carriers
Assault carriers have one job - to carry troops and provide cover for them during combat landings in contested areas. They are necessary for assaults on heavily shielded worlds. Usually a combined strike would try to blast a temporary hole in the shield which the assault carriers would then charge through. As the forces were then trapped under the shield and face withering fire, the command of an assault carrier is reserved for the most daring, nay crazy, officers in the fleet. Note that this tactic does not work on homeworlds and that it requires several Star Dreadnoughts to punch a hole in an enemy planetary shield.


Name: Acclamator class assault ship
Faction: All factions
Length: 752 m
Building time: 10 months
Cost: 6 points
Armament: 12 quad turbolaser cannon, 24 point defence laser cannons, 4 warhead launchers (capship grade)
Fighter complement: none
Consumables: 2 years
Crew: 700 + 1 division of troops
Role: Assault carrier
The Acclamator is fast, well shielded and therefore good suited for the job. However, it still has to land in order to deliver the majority of troops, something that has proven deadly to more than one division.



Name: Doomgiver class assault carrier
Faction: Imperial only
Length: 1800 m
Building time: 16 months
Cost: 12 points
Armament: medium
Fighter complement: 24 Starfighters (ground attack variants), 24 Space superiority fighters
Consumables: 2 years
Crew: 3000 + 1 corps of troops (no heavy divisions)
Role: Assault carrier
The Doomgiver is an improvement upon the previous assault carriers. Instead of entering the atmosphere itself, it will instead launch specially built droppods through the shield, thereby decreasing the risk of complete loss of troops. The downside is that with this method, no heavy divisions can be landed.
