Kalichar Lance Cruiser
The Kalichar Lance Cruiser represents the pinnacle of Circasian particle lance development. The Lancer Design Project, which had given birth to such ships as the Xandar and Shenna during the previous two decades, had been working for years on a capital ship equipped with the particle lance weapon. The design team was later presented with a series of requirements very similar to those given to the designers of the Thrace Jump Cruiser and forced to adhere to them in the designing of the new Kalichar. Although the Thrace would prove to be the more popular of the two designs, the Lancer Design Project had earned a great deal of respect and maintained strong support at that time from prominent military leaders.

The Kalichar Lance Cruiser is built around a pair of particle lances and an assortment of tertiary heavy and light weapons. A formidable warship, the Kalichar was easily the most powerful Circasian cruiser of its day.

The Lancer Design Project fell out of favor after the Chouka War, a fact that would keep the Kalichar from being widely produced or adopted by the Circasian Empire. The Kalichar Lance Cruiser, despite its success in tactical simulations, became a victim of shifting political alliances.
