Appearance • The Centurion-class Battleship is much in the shape of the Raptor-class Corvette, but significantly larger. It is angular, dagger shaped, with a flared rear end, holding 8 engines. Thick armor plating covers much of the exterior, and it is able to close up around the top to contain everything inside. Along the spine, running from the blunt nose to near the recessed bridge contains the living area, with windows facing inside.
Behind the bridge are the fighter bays, four of them each containing a squadron of starfighters. A raptor-class corvette can land between all the bays in one made just for them for light repairs and rearming. The last notable feature is its large turbolaser cannons, forward mounted, intended to blow away anything standing in its crosshairs.
The Centurion-class Battleship primary function is to fly into a conflict, absorb fire, and dish out what it can while allied ships work to deal additional damage. As such, it has incredibly thick armor and shields designed solely to take abuse. Because of that, its weaponry is lacking compared to other ships of its size, it meant to pound enemies from a distance while protecting itself and tanking as much fire as possible. Its oversized engines and extra exhaust ports, which direct extra energy to maneuver it around to aim its primary cannons, or move to intercept ships heading towards softer targets.
