The third 3rd-generation warship to serve in the Continuum Navy, the Longbow Class artillery cruiser provides rear-echelon fire support for its assigned battlefleet at extreme distances. The ship is built around its primary weapon, a Continuum R&D-designed heavy railgun capable of firing 500-ton projectiles (depleted uranium-cored ferric-tungsten or plasma-injected preuritium) at 40000 meters per second. The ship also forgoes the Ghost Cloak drive of its predecessor, the Diablo Class battlecruiser, in favor of additional dedicated fusion cores, long-range scanners and advanced AI targeting computers for delivering its payload with extreme accuracy and precision without being hindered by long recharge times. The Longbow is also armed with multiple concussion missile batteries for medium to close-quarter combat, and although its armor is lacking for its size, the Longbow can generate very powerful shields thanks to its additional fusion cores. The Longbow Class was commissioned in late 3207, just a few weeks after the Diablo was commissioned, and played a significant role in defending high-risk systems from incoming Tor battlefleets.
