Eshu Dreadnought v2

Second version of the ship.

The Eshu class Dreadnought was actually designed after the Oya class Super-Dreadnought, but built first due to cost issues with the much larger super-dreadnought.

Similar to the Oya class, the Eshu - named after the Yoruba god of the crossroads - is relatively small for a dreadnought but with a proportionately higher load of fighters and drones. Also similar to other dreadnought designs from other polities, the Eshu favors HED lances over tactical nuclear warheads, and is intended to be thrown more readily into battle with extremely heavy forward armor.

The Eshu is somewhat vulnerable to being flanked, however, and relies on a destroyer screen to intercept more distant threats, and its own formidable drone capacity combined with supplementary HED lance batteries for close-in point defense to defend itself. Still, its casualty projections are far higher than the Oya Class, a fact that makes this class a popular posting for those craving frontline combat experience.

Notably, the Eshu's single habitat ring armature is, unlike those of the Oya, fixed in place to take maximum advantage of the heavy forward bulkhead. The inner ring's rotation inside the armature is stopped during combat engagements thus the entire ship crew experiences zero-g environment and they're required to use special harnesses to prevent them from being injured during combat maneuvers.
