Description:
The largest warship being regularly produced in the Imperium, the Monitor is primarily a system defense unit. Combining a large Lasgun and Missile capacity with the best armor Ix is capable of producing, the Monitor should be able to deter most adversaries. However, in attack it is extremely slow and unmaneuverable, and if the need arises for it to be pressed into service in such a mode the Monitor works best as a weapons platform. The influence of the Guild in ensuring the creation of the largest hull type as a defensive unit is seen once again. Most Monitors are unshielded, instead relaying on their thick armor. It was deemed too large a hull to risk on the vagaries of a Holtzman reaction. Monitors use Class L missile launchers.

Design Notes:
Adjusted due to playtesting. The new Version has the same weapons suite but dispersed more evenly through the ship, ensuring some heavy weapons capability will survive even after losing the forward section. Turn cost and delay were slightly reduced, but is still clumsy at 5/4.
