The ship above was initially designed for the sixth Warring Factions story and will still be used in that story but the info and design will be different when that gets posted. The Crossover Universe story this will be used for will be worked on after that sixth story is complete. Any logos and companies’ names shown above and mentioned in the description below is being used in an upcoming non-profit fan-created piece of science fiction.
In 63 G.E., the United Systems of the Republic after the war with the Cantarians knew that its current fleet of vessels needed to go through an extensive upgrade as the Cantarian ships, namely their battleships, gave the Republic Starfleet issues in terms of defeating them without loses. After 4 years of development, the first ships to be developed started to roll off the assembly lines. In the end, three base hulls were designed which became the Blood Falcon frigates, the Silver Hawk cruisers, and the Iron Eagle battleships. The new military ships now possess Sub-Transwarp drives, provided by the Republic Starfleet Corp of Engineers and Lai Dai Corporation, to go from one system to another at a much quicker rate than the older ships that only had warp drives. The ships were built at Roden Shipyards located at Barnard’s Star. As part of the deal in the construction of the ships for Starfleet, the company logos adorn the hulls of the ships for all five companies responsible for the construction of the ships as well as the logo for the Republic.
The smallest of the three hulls in use by the Republic Starfleet is the 200–meter long Blood Falcon-class Frigate, named primarily based on the amount of red the ship was painted with. In order to fulfill the mission role the frigate was meant to do, there needed to be more room within the hull for the ammo, cargo capacity, power supply, and engines. To do this, the bridge was placed outside the hull. However, the armor is just as thick and durable as the rest of the 400mm reinforced titanium hull plating by Stark Industries the Blood Falcon is equipped with along with armor repair nanomachines created by Roden Shipyards. The ship also has a primary and secondary shield system created by Lai Dai Corporation to allow it to take some punishment from similar frigates and even destroyers. However, with the four repulsor engines by Stark Industries and three phase transition engines by Nergal Heavy Industries that the Blood Falcon possesses, the ship is capable of being the fastest ship in the star cluster meaning that larger ships will have a harder time trying to hit it. The Blood Falcon was designed for use against other frigates and destroyers. Only in small groups can the frigates take on a cruiser and possibly in large groups to engage against battleships. The armaments of the Blood Falcon, all created by Kaalakiota Corporation, include 4 small dual railguns, 12 small blaster cannons, and 4 light missile launchers. Unlike the Iron Eagle battleship and the Silver Hawk cruiser, the Blood Falcon does not possess any beam laser weapons due to the fact the power supply could not handle them within the small hull without sacrificing some space in other areas of the ship. Thankfully due to the nature of the fact that the Republic’s hybrid weapons uses the same ammo but launches them differently, the Blood Falcon only needs to carry that ammo along with missiles making rearming the ship very simple. Because the ship has no hangar bays for shuttles, usually docking with larger ships or stations, the ship utilizes a transporter system with two transporter located in the fore and aft sections. The Blood Falcon is the primary patrol vessel in Republic space, sometimes in pairs or more. Other times it is seen in fleets either led by a Silver Hawk cruiser or in larger fleets led by an Iron Eagle Battleship.
