Designed to capitalize on the technological and tactical improvements discovered through the original WarShips, including the TAS Dreadnought, the Monsoon-class battleship was designed to dominate the void – and became the blueprint for all subsequent ships.
However, despite the legendary status of the venerable Monsoon-class, technological development eventually led to the obsolescence of the Monsoon. Unwilling to let the class go, the admiralty of the Terran Hegemony spent ever-increasing amounts of money to upgrade the BattleTechnology of the Monsoon. However, in the wake of the Reunification War, the admiralty finally conceded, and the last Monsoon was decommissioned in 2668.
The broadside batteries of the Monsoon are mostly naval lasers. Combined with naval PPCs, several naval autocannons and trio of White Shark missile systems, the armament of the Monsoon is be capable of defeating any single, smaller adversary.
A large ship, the Monsoon-class was able to carry a massive amount of cargo. The class is fitted with 6 DropShip collars, and has 3 bays. These bays are able to transport a wing of AeroSpace Fighters, 8 small craft, and nearly 300,000 tons of cargo.
