The Gladiator class was a class of heavy cruisers built in the Solarian League.

Class Design Edit

Around 1918 PD, it was the Solarian Navy's most recent heavy cruiser design, with completely up-to-date weaponry and electronic warfare capability. (HHA4.6: TSotS, CS1)

Class History Edit

So far the only appearing Gladiator-class heavy cruisers were four ships obtained on unoffcial ways by Manpower Incorporated from Technodyne Industries and manned with Silesian pirates, all of which were destroyed by HMS Gauntlet in the Battle of Tiberian.

No Solarian-flagged ships of that class appeared in the Haven Sector as of 1921 PD.[2]

References Edit

  1. It seems Solarian warships were biased to missile combat: Indefatigable-class battlecruisers were built with 29 missile tubes in a broadside (SI1), War Harvest-class destroyers were as strong as light cruisers.
  2. However, it is very likely the Mesan heavy cruisers encountered in the Congo System were of Solarian origin, so it is possible they were Gladiator-class ships, too. (CS1)
