The competition for star systems and habitable planets spurred The People’s Star Navy to request a specialty ship capable of carrying marines and attack craft. The Gondwana-class was proposed and accepted into service. This behemoth carries an entire battalion of orbital insertion troopers, including support craft and terrestrial combat vehicles. They are support by twenty-four Xiang-class craft configured for close air support.
The ship itself host another twenty-four Xiang-class Interceptors for self-defense. Weaponry includes a set of rail guns, eight heavy laser systems, and six missile bays.
