MD-8 War Cruiser

The MD-8 War Cruiser is a heavily armed warship built to serve as strike elements in Gorn fleets. Slow and unmaneuverable like most Gorn ships, the MD-8 cannot hope to out maneuver the enemy. Instead, the MD-8 relies on its large weapons loadout whose arcs mean that two heavy weapons will always be in-arc of a target no matter where they maneuver. Small strike groups composed of three to four MD-8's are capable of ripping enemy fleets to ribbons.
