A converted freighter, the Revelation War Barge is an auxiliary support ship. The Revelation War Barges were initially designed as logistics vessels for the movement of munitions from Chouka to fleets and outposts in Mishtuki or Breth. Eventually, however, the Chouka Theocracy decided that they were a cheap alternative to fielding “real” warships and the pace of production was picked up. Slow, ponderous, and equipped with antiquated missile systems, the Revelation is the perfect example of a government cutting corners to save money.
The Revelation War Barges saw extensive service during the Chouka War, and in fact they were one of the most common units seen in combat. Almost every Chouka fleet of any size included several Revelation War Barges. Revelations were found to be most effective in a fleet action scale environment where they could periodically fire salvoes of missiles at Circasian warships while they were distracted with heavier warships, such as the Apostle Holy Cruisers.
