Hura Light Cruiser
The Hura Light Cruiser was designed to take full advantage of the new Ranged Meson Cannon that had recently been developed by ak-Tai scientists. Long-range fire support units, the Hura Light Cruisers were used to escort other larger cruiser classes into battle. The ak-Tai’s intent was to use the Huras to significantly weaken the enemy before they entered optimal weapons range.

The Hura Light Cruiser proved to be a solid light cruiser hull when operated as intended. The combination of its Ranged Meson Cannons and close-in anti-fighter arsenal allowed the Hura to suitably protect the fleet from harm. Huras are unable to carry the battle on their own, and those light cruisers left to fend for themselves most often met a swift death at the hands of enemy strike units.
