Destroyer Diomedes (CD-7217)

Originally designed and built at the outset of the first war, the Cygnus-class was designed mainly for patrol and picket duties around the colonies and shipping lanes - thus their naming for ancient naval (water) engagements. Fast and maneuverable for a capitol ship, they were often assigned the most hazardous duties during the first war and thus, their attrition rates were barely below appalling levels. Eventually they were upgraded with heavier armaments and armor and it slowed them down - but their survival rates increased in an increasing number of engagements. Post war, the few hundred of these Cygnus-class that survived the war were redeployed back to the lanes and colonies for the not-so-glorious task of policing and enforcing trade tarriffs. However, a few of them were assigned to deeper duties to hunt in wolfpacks and attempt to find and kill slavers and drug runners that operated off the normal lanes and grids. Each ship backs a respectable punch, too. With two large-bore siege cannons underneath the chin, the dorsal section of the ship has six twin-barreled anti-ship guns, along with a small missile package on each side near the engines and a battery of 5 twin-barreled rapid fire guns just fore of the missile packs.
