Firestorm Cruiser

The SB-1 Firestorm class Heavy Cruiser is an anti-starfighter capital ship
capable of holding its own against other capital ships. It looks like a
cross between a small SSD and a Mon Calamari cruiser. Unlike traditional
Star Destroyer designs, the Firestorm does not thin out towards the front,
rather it has shield generators and backup generators housed there. A large
tube runs along each side of the Firestorm, housing concussion missile
factories, allowing the Firestorm to produce its own missiles for the 150
missile launchers. The 50 quad laser cannons work with the tractor beams in
an automated system that uses the tractor beams to hold down enemy
starfighters while the quad laser cannons automatically fire at the
starfighter being held. Maneuvering jets placed on the sides of the tubes
and on the top and bottom of the fore hull to allow quick rolls and
maneuvers. The ship is rather sleek, the hull black in color. Using the most
advanced miniturization and production technology, the factories are capable
of producing 150 missles in 4 minutes. This is possible by having 150 mini
factories, each one producing a missle at the same time.

The forward bays hold enough materials for the construction of 3,000 missles.
The sheer speed of production is perhaps the most impressive thing about the
SB-1. Each launcher may hold 2 missles before requiring reloading. There is
also no space aboard the Firestorm for missle storage other than in the
launchers, so no pre-battle production is done unless the missles are
immediately transported off ship.
