Dominion Class Battlecruiser

The Dominion Class Battlecruiser is a Battle Cruiser class of the Imperial Navy.

Overview

The class was envisioned as a modern replacement for the Mars Class design optimized to carry large amounts of Attack Craft by the fleetlords of Bakka while also having Lance batteries to satisfy the "big-gun" lobby. However the class faired poorly in smaller engagements and raids and overall suffered from many of the weaknesses of the Gothic Class Cruiser. After several craft were lost, the Imperial Navy halted orders for the class after ten hulls were constructed.[1]

Despite their shortcomings, the vessels performed better during the Battle for Macragge against the Tyranids where they served as fleet support ships.[1]
