EBSIS Slava class Rocket Cruiser:
Few people believe that the EBSIS naval forces are as powerful as they are but the reality is that they are quite dangerous. The Slava class cruiser actually predates the design for the Kirov class cruiser but construction on the first unit was not begun until after the first of the Kirov class cruiser. The Slava cruisers are much smaller and much less expensive than the Kirov class and they are found filling the same roles. Originally, twenty one of these cruisers were to have been built in competition against the American Ticonderoga class cruisers but only six of the class were completed before the Global War and construction of more of the class was delayed due to the Global War. During the Global War, two of the Slava class were sunk. While there was some belief that the EBSIS would continue constructing Slava class cruisers after the Global War ended, it appears now as if they plan to construct a new cruiser design in their place. The surviving Slava class cruisers have been refitted with high strength ceramics and upgraded systems. Until the EBSIS economy can recover, these shsips will likely be an important part of their Navy. The Slava class is also known as the Atlant Class Rocket Cruisers.
The propulsion of the Slava class is far more conventional and similar to system of NATO nations than it is for the Kirov class. The ship uses four M8KF gas turbines as the main propulsion and two M70 gas turbines as the ship auxilary systems. These systems allow for speeds up to 32 knots. Since the ship is smaller, it is not quite as well armed as a Kirov class but is well armed for its size. All but the ships anti-ship missile launchers have been converted to fire missiles that are copies of designs stolen for the RDF.
The Slava class have very spacious officers quarters and actually have a small swimming pool. The ship has space for one helicopter. The ships have the facilities to act as a flagship when required.

 Destroying both Top Pair and Top Plate Air Search System radar system will eliminate the ships long range air search ability but weapon systems have backup fire control systems. Both air search systems are separate so both systems are not likely to be disable from a single hit.
 Depleting the M.D.C. of the main body destroys the ship’s structural integrity, causing it to sink. There are enough flotation devices and inflatable life rafts to accommodate everyone aboard.

- Twin Barrel 130mm/70 cal AK-130-MR-184 Universal Automated Shipboard
Artillery System: Standard weapon system on Slava class cruisers and
is mounted in the front of the ship. The turret has a 360 degree rotation
and can elevate up to 85 degrees as well as depress 15 degrees. The guns
fire rapidly at the rate of 65 rounds per minute and is radar directed.
The weapon is useful on land, surface, and air targets. The EBSIS has developed
special ammunition that uses more powerful warheads. The was developed
to deal with the new RDF/UN Spacy ship and aircraft armors.
Maximum Effective Range: 17.4 miles (28 km)
Mega-Damage: One round inflicts 5D6+10 with a blast radius of 20 ft (6.1 m). Can also fire a burst of three rounds which inflicts 2D6x10 M.D. to a blast radius of 30 feet (9.1 m) per barrel (4D6x10 for both barrels with 6 rounds total being fired)
Rate of Fire: Up to five single shots or bursts per melee.
Payload: 840 rounds total.
- AK-630 30 mm Gatling Anti Air guns (6): Point defense system
that fills a similar purpose to the US Navies CIWS. System is a six barrel
30 mm Gatling gun. The weapon is useful on land, surface, and air targets.
While the launcher can be controlled by a gunner, it is normally set on
automatic and in this mode has five attacks per melee and with guns has
+3 to strike missiles and +2 to strike aircraft.
Maximum Effective Range: 9700 feet (2960 meters).
Mega-Damage: 4D6 per burst of 30 rounds.
Rate of Fire: Five bursts per melee for each mount (Has +3 to strike missiles and +2 to strike aircraft).
Payload: 3000 rounds per CIWS mount (100 bursts).
- Eight B-303A VLS underdeck drum launcher systems: The launchers
are mounted in the deck in front and in back of the ships superstructure.
These launchers were originally designed to launch V-601 Fort-Ryf/SA-N-6
Grumble missiles but have been refitted to launch standard Robotech long
range missiles. They can launch on either ground, surface or air targets.
The launchers can launch at multiple targets simultaneously.
Maximum Effective Range: Varies with long range missile type (See Robotech RPG book)
Mega-Damage: Varies with long range missile type (See Robotech RPG book)
Rate of Fire: One at a time or in volleys of any amount up to 12 (including all launchers) in any combinations and at multiple target at the same time.
Payload: 64 long range missiles total (8 missiles per launcher)
- Zif-122 retractable launchers (2): These launchers are mounted
on the sides of the ships superstructure. These launchers were originally
designed to launch RZ-13M Osa-2M/SA-N-4B Gecko missiles but have been refitted
to launch standard Robotech medium range missiles. They can launch on either
ground, surface, or air targets. The launchers can launch at multiple targets
Maximum Effective Range: Varies with medium range missile type (See Robotech RPG book)
Mega-Damage: Varies with medium range missile type (See Robotech RPG book)
Rate of Fire: One at a time or in volleys of any amount up to 4 for each launcher (8 missiles total) in any combinations and at multiple target at the same time.
Payload: 40 medium range missiles total (20 missiles per launcher)
- Paired P-500/SS-N-19 Bazalt/Sandbox Launchers (8): While
most missiles launchers that have been converted to fire standard missiles,
these launchers retained the original missile that they were designed for.
The missile launchers fire P-500 Bazalt/SS-N-12 Sandbox missiles. The missile
is similar to the original model but the guidance systems have been improved
on the missiles. The missiles are the predecessor to the Shipwreck missile
carried on the Kirov class The missiles can be fired be fired at either
ground or surface targets but cannot be targeted on air targets. The ships
has 16 Sandbox missiles in paired launch systems on the sides of the ship.
The missiles are considered smart missiles (+5 to strike, +4 to dodge,
and 2 attacks per melee until they strike their target or run out of fuel)
and can be launched at multiple targets simultaneously. The missiles travel
at a speed of Mach 2.2 (1657 mph/ 1440 knots/ 2667 kph). This calculates
to a speed of 7.5 miles (6.5 nautical miles / 12 km) per melee. Missiles
can withstand 40 M.D.C. before being destroyed.
Maximum Effective Range: 288 miles (250 nautical miles / 463 km)
Mega-Damage: 2D4x100 per missile (Blast radius of 80 feet / 24.4 meters)
Rate of Fire: One at a time or in volleys of 2, 3, or 4 (including all launchers) in any combinations and at multiple target at the same time.
Payload: 16 Shipwreck Missiles (2 per paired set of launchers)
- Type 53 Torpedo Launchers (2): There is one launcher on each
side of the ship. Each torpedo launcher has five torpedo tubes and tubes
are 21 inch (533 mm) wide. Torpedoes are normally used against submarines
but can be targeted on surface targets as well. Treat warheads as long
range missile warheads. The ship can also fire anti-submarine missile which
releases a torpedo at the end of its flight. The torpedo has a warhead
equal to a medium range missile and can be used against both submarines
and surface targets as well. Ship carries 20 reloads for torpedoes or .
Maximum Effective Range: Standard Torpedoes: 20 miles (32 km). Missile launched Torpedoes: Missile Stage: 57.3 miles (50 nautical miles / 92.6 km). Torpedo stage: 5.2 miles (4.5 nautical miles / 8.3 km)
Mega Damage: Standard Torpedoes: Treat warheads as long range missile warheads (See Robotech RPG book). Missile launched Torpedoes: Treat warheads as medium range missile warheads (See Robotech RPG book).
Rate of Fire: One at a time or in volleys of 2, 3, or 5. Reloading takes 1 full melee
Payload: 5 torpedoes/ missiles each launcher for a grand total of 10 torpedoes/missiles (Has 20 torpedoes/missiles for reloads)
- RPK-8 Zapad/RBU 6000 ASW Rail Launcher (2): This weapon system
are twelve tube anti-submarine rocket mortar system mounted on the front
of the ship. It works similarly to a depth charge launchers in the respect
that it uses multiple warheads in the attempt to hit the target. The weapon
is useful against torpedoes as well as against submarines but is only useful
against underwater targets
Maximum Effective Range: 19,700 feet (3.7 nautical miles / 6000 meters)
Mega Damage: 3D6 per warhead with a blast radius of 20 ft (6.1 m).
