Description:
The Lucifer-class destroyer escort is built to serve as escorts for destroyers in the 3-5 kton range.
It has proven itself capable and earned a nickname, "onehelvaship". There have been between
3-4000 units delivered to date. It has jump-4 and 6-G maneuver allowing it to keep up with most
fleets in combat.  This is the commonwealth TL16 upgrade of the vessel. It provides an additional
J2 of fuel in blatters but some captains prefer cargo or ships vehicle.
It is an agile, armored and well armed. At long range, the ship's large complement of nuclear and
HE missiles are used to maximum effect, while at short range, its primary battery of four fusion guns
take over. Their high USP rating of six will produce many critical hits on small ships.
The Lucifer-class is routinely assigned to garrison or patrol duties and will occasionally be assigned
to run special errands on detached duty.
