From publisher blurb:
The second chapter in the 0 hr Armada Codex line, this issue presents a detailed description, complete deckplans, and high quality renderings for a medium size war ship and its variants. This product is designed to give you a set of ready-made ships to plug into your setting and rules of choice - lending depth and detail to your campaign. Though a sample background is provided, it is separate from the suggested statistics, deck plans, and location descriptions. Use what you want and change what you like. The goal is to provide a complete package, but one that can be easily broken into its constituent parts as needed. When it’s time to play, zero hour is ready.
Constructed by the Sol Autocracy at the renown New Albion Shipyards, this cadre of a dozen war ships was the core of a bold offensive launched against the Theocracy of Terra Nova. Of the twelve vessels, half are full blooded ships of the line – armed with heavy anti-ship cannons as well as a full suite of missiles, rockets, and point defense guns. Four others use a variant hull design built for speed and stealth, while the final two are relegated to support and diplomatic roles. Mourning Wolf serves as the archetype for the war ships. Shadow Wolf is the first of the stealth/recon variants, and Winter Wolf is one of the support ships (though still a capable fighter as it is essentially the base warship design minus the massive anti-ship cannons). All three are fully detailed and illustrated in this chapter of the Codex.
