Altarren Ares Starcruiser

The Ares class starships were the largest spacecraft developed by Altarren
Fleet Systems approximately six hundred years prior to the birth of the
Galactic Empire. Like the rest of Altarren's designs, the Ares only saw
limited production and deployment within the Minar sector located in the
Mid Rim territories.

The Altarrens constructed the Ares to serve as their main line battleship
for the defense of their sovereignty - the Altarrens never joined the Old
Republic but eventually lost their independence when Imperial warships
arrived in system.

The Ares starships were 550 meters in length (only slightly smaller than
the Republic's Dreadnaught heavy cruisers) and boasted an impressive array
of weaponry which included 52 laser pulse cannons and 22 concussion missile

The vessels were designed to serve as space carriers as well as troopships.
Each Ares starship carried a full squadron of twelve AF76 assault fighters
on external fighter racks mounted on the craft's dorsal side. For surface
actions, the ships carried 2,500 Altarren Mobile Infantry (AMI) troops along
with sixteen drop-ships and six transports for deployment.

The Altarren engineers designed the Ares to have an operational lifespan of
several centuries. Due to this, the Ares remained the main warship of the
Altarren Navy all the way up to the eventual Imperial takeover - the ships
destroyed by the attacking Imperial forces were an average of 400 years old.
