The Hades was on the drawing board for a long time, initially a scrapped ‘Orion Cracker’ project, the Hades design was brought back up once other space faring empires, though once again it languished through multiple redesigns. A pair of prototypes were finally being put together when the Deathspire Imperium hit Omega Ceti. With the entire fleet obliterated, the prototypes were rushed into action. As a result the final weapons load out and other parts of Hades class seem incomplete but they are solid warships. Each one is built around the single most powerful mass accelerator yet designed by the Republic, spanning almost the entire length of the ship and capable of accelerating a slug the size of a Zeus bomber to the terrifying velocity of 0.06 of C. But this is not it’s sole weapon, each Hades also has twelve beam cannons, capable of terrifying broadside power, with at least 4 being able to fire in any given direction giving the ship three-sixty degree beam coverage, in addition to this it also has no less then thirty missile racks, eighty rapid fire light pulse cannons and twenty four heavy pulse cannons. If the Republic deploys a Hades, they mean business.
