Description: Also commonly known as the Minbari War Cruiser, the Sharlin class is very large, being 1600 meters long and about 1900 meters tall.

Sharlin class ships use a gravitic drive system, which is used to provide artificial gravity. An artificial singularity and fusion reactors provide power for this type of vessel. The Sharlin class is very well armed, having gravitic neutron and fusion cannons, as well neutron and fusion guns, electro-pulse guns, a missile launcher, and an antimatter cannon. The ship also makes use of stealth technology which allows it to become effectively invisible to sensor and targeting systems.

These ships can hold up to 8000 people. In peacetime the Sharlin class ships only have the 190 person regular crew. In combat situations there can be 60 additional combat personnel, such as pilots, gunners, and other support officers, and about 8000 ground troops. The low crew requirement is due to the advanced computer system in place. The Valen'tha-a specially equipped Sharlin class-is home to the Grey Council, the leaders of the Minbari government.

The Sharlin class ships have a special holographic chamber. The chamber provides a complete 360 degree 3D image of the space around the ship. Normally it is used as a command center during battle situations. This chamber allows the commander to view the battlefield. A similar chamber is used by the Grey Council.

Among the younger races of the galaxy, the Sharlin class has no equals. During the Earth-Minbari war only few Sharlin class ships were lost, typically by ramming, while the Sharlin class inflicted heavy casualties on the humans. However, the Sharlin class was no match for the more advanced First Ones-the Shadows were able to destroy a number of Sharlin class ships during the course of the war with ease through the use of planet killer missiles and slicer beams.
