1 heavy (class 3) beam (weapons batteries) limited to starboard for and aft arcs (FS, AS); and
2 torpedo tubes firing for and aft (FS, AS).
The port broadside is the mirror image.
The broadside firepower is supplemented by a forward firing (FP, F, FS) salvo-missile launcher, 2 light (class 1) beams, and 4 point defence systems.
All of this firepower is coordinated through 3 fire control computers.
This class of ship is reasonably well constructed and well manned. It is also equipped with level one screens and a small amount of armour. It has acceptable thrust for a ship of this size.
This class of ship forms the basis of a number of similar ships.
