Ilustris Heavy Destroyer
The Ilustris Heavy Destroyer was one of the largest warships of its day. Classed a heavy destroyer by the War Council, the Ilustris could have been better called the heavy cruiser of its day. Ilustris Heavy Destroyers formed the core of Circasian patrol fleets, one Ilustris usually operating as the command ship for the fleet.

Although technologically advanced, the Ilustris was still inferior to the ships operated by other powers in the region, including many raider warships. Nonetheless, the Ilustris was a capable warship and proved to be one of the most effective of the Circasian’s early starship hulls.
