Ship Classes

There are nine commonly accepted classes of starship within GalCiv space, and these conventions are essentially adopted by all other areas of space too.

In descending size order the classes of ship are (The number in parenthesis signifying the number of modules in a ship of this class):

Dreadnaught (20)
Carrier (12)
Battleship (10)
Battlecruiser (8)
Cruiser (6)
Destroyer (4)
Frigate (3)
Corvette (2)
Fighter (1)

The number of subsystems within a class is often used to denote type (for example a 20 subsystem fighter might be classed as a heavy fighter). However there is no hard or fast rule for sub-type and the terms are often a marketing message from the constructing corporation.
