HRMS (His Reydovan Majesty's Ship) White Hunter is a Reydovan Imperial Navy Stryker-class battlecruiser, registered with the Reydovan Registration Code (RRC) 62687. The White Hunter is commanded by Emperor Kieran Devaneaux, and serves as his flagship for all of his campaigns. The design is based on the Hiigaran Battlecruiser from the computer game Homeworld2.
The 960-meter-long White Hunter was constructed at Imperial Outland Shipyards near Reydovan Prime in 2375, after Devaneaux became Warmaster of the Reydovan Military Body. It was named for Devaneaux himself by former Emperor Kiran Joshmaul I, believing that it best described his role. The Hunter was involved in the brief civil war to overthrow his father, Artimus Devaneaux. It became his personal transport between Reydovan Prime and Earth when he became Emperor in March 2376, and was involved in the Ides of March campaign shortly thereafter.
Propulsion, Armaments, and Other FeaturesEdit
The White Hunter utilizes state-of-the-art Reydovan fold drive technology to allow her to move quickly from one point to another in space; she is also equipped with warp drives as backup. Her sublight movement is slow, but her turning speed is somewhat quicker for a vessel of her size. The Hunter is armed with quantum torpedoes, large pulse turrets, and two heavy phaser cannons. She also utilizes ablative armor hull plating and advanced shields, and possesses the latest sensor technology. She can also carry three squadrons of fighters (thirty ships) and at least six shuttlecraft.
