Siege Perilous Class

Designed as a next generation successor to the versatile and venerable Righteous Fist of Heaven platform, the Siege Perilous Class is the newest and most advanced ship class in the High Guard fleet, serving as the new Deep Stand-Off Attack Ship II (DSA II / DSX). Incorporating many hard-learned lessons from the recently concluded Magog hostilities and the latest in Commonwealth technology, the Siege Perilous Class is the most lethal starship-killer ever built. Designed to operate with a minimum of crew and without fleet support behind enemy lines for extended periods of time, the DSX forgoes such standard shipboard features as small craft, a Lancer contingent, and research capabilities in favor of missiles, missiles, and more missiles. The Siege Perilous Class is the most heavily armed starship class launched by the Commonwealth, and her arsenal includes the latest in extreme-range kill vehicles as well as the usual suite of offensive and defensive missiles, AP Guns, and PDLs. Additionally, the DSX's distinctive, knife-like profile gives her a tiny sensor cross-section, making her nearly impossible for foes to detect. And any enemy who does manage to engage her will find that reactive shielding and cold plasma armor make the Siege Perilous Class exceptionally resilient and damage-resistant, while her lack of entry points (access to the ship is through a single, heavily fortified airlock) leaves the ship nearly invulnerable to boarding raids.


Naming Inconsistencies

The All Systems University identified the Wrath of Achilles and Balance of Judgement as Wrath of Achilles Class warships, which is contradicted by dialog in the series. The Balance of Judgement was identified as a Siege Perilous Class destroyer, while the Wrath of Achilles was called a DSX attack cruiser. The changes to this article are adjustments based on the series information.
