Ukrainian Fleet
The Ukrainian fleet, while not on par with those of the great powers, is one of the most capable of any "tier 2" nation. Built first and foremost for defense of its few colonies, Ukraine's fleet is a good mix of types with solid domestic cruisers and destroyers supplemented by new construction frigates and fighters purchased from France. Ukraine has little need to maintain a strong core presence, instead focusing its strength deployed to its developing colonial holdings.

Texan Fleet
The small Texan fleet is largely defensive in nature protecting core and colonial assets. Texas's interstellar warships are limited to a handful of destroyers and frigates, but their most potent capability lies in its ground based fighters. Relative to its size, Texas has built up the largest fighter force of any Terran nation. Composed initially of purchased and later license built, American fighters, Texas has now developed and produced an excellent domestic design. The Javelina interceptor has even garnered some attention from potential buyers looking for a solid but economical colonial defense fighter.

Australian Fleet
Australia's small space force has two primary missions: colonial defense and commerce protection. Because of its focus, the Australian fleet is primarily composed of destroyers and frigates capable of flexibility and economy. With just a few cruisers available and no large capital ships, Australia has no true "battle line" capable of going toe to toe with enemy fleets. In any major conflict Australia can count on its close alliance with America, and would certainly adopt a "commerce warfare" doctrine.

Kafer Battle Fleet
The Kafer fleets have two basic purposes; defeat enemy fleets and deliver ground forces to a target world. To that end, just about all Kafer warships have been designed to go head to head with enemy ships while carrying a troop contingent. Kafers do not normally provide escort to rear -area transports and cargo vessels, though these types are usually armed and more rugged than comparable human vessels. Kafer system defense is typically handled by a combination of ground based fighters, liberal use of sentinal mines and ships too damaged to be part of their respective fleets. However, in Kafer "home" systems it is not unusual to encounter concentrations of warships preparing for battle even if they are not technically tasked with defending a system.

I've only seen supplements (such as Sol Cruiser, which was based in the 2300AD universe but free), so I don't know that much, but I'm interested...:D

Of course you're interested! I can't imagine a universe in which you wouldn't be. :lol:
I just wonder how many other people might be left around these parts. It's awfully quiet most of the time.

As far as the 2300 AD setting goes the classic line regarding how the space combat is handled is that it is like "hide and seek with bazookas". Detect, identify, engage with missiles looking for a quick kill or at the very least to weaken the enemy, and then close and hose with beams/submunition detonation lasers. It's kind of an interesting cross between submarine combat and ironclad era gun duels.

Oh, there are some universes in which I'm lukewarm...:D
Activity seems to peak at certain times, but dips in others. I'm hoping to ignite some interest soon (if only for a short while), so stay tuned...:)
