The Emperor Class Battleship is a large vessel used by the Imperial Navy and Basilikon Astra.[6] It is a command ship and a carrier combined together. It is one of the oldest designs still in use, due to the discovery of Divine Right fused into a Space Hulk for some ten thousand years.[1]


An Emperor Battleship[5]

The main armament of the Emperor class is made up of its 8 squadrons of attack craft such as the Fury Interceptor and Starhawk Bomber. These are able to roam far from the ship, to engage enemy capital ships that would be out of range, or otherwise non-viable targets for the ship's port, starboard, dorsal, and prow-mounted weapons batteries[1].
