Victory Class Battleship

Victory Class Battleship[1]

The Victory Class Battleship is a class of Battleship of the Imperial Navy.


Suspected to be a heavily modified variant of the Retribution Class Battleship, its internal layout and weapons systems greatly resemble its predecessor. However a key difference is the substantial level of lance systems and a Nova Cannon equipped to the ship in place of the Retribution Class Battleship's large amount of weapons batteries and torpedoes. Its exact origin nonetheless remains unclear, as the Techpriests of Mars refuse to disclose the classes records. However, there is speculation that the Victory was an attempt to replicate the highly successful Apocalypse Class Battleship.[2] The Victory class is known to have existed as far back as the Great Crusade.[1][2]
