Short Description of Vessel: Produced over the mid 2430s onwards through to the 2450s, the Actalena Class Light Battleship was developed in response to the rising costs of the maintenance of the large ship of the line maintained by the Rosebourg Monarchy. The costs of maintenance, which had been named as one of the biggest source of drainage on the Rosebourg treasury, forced the Rosebourg Monarchy to consider new vessels that were both cheap to construct, and cheap to maintain. The result was a lightly armored, heavily powered warship whose number of guns on the hull seems to be the predominant identifying factor of this vessel.

Fast in comparison to the Mary-Rosebourg class battleship, the Actalena Class Light Battleship could easily fall into the Heavy Cruiser category. Her hull is neither characteristic of a light battleship, yet the number of guns is unusual and greatly outguns most heavy cruisers. The Actalena Class Light Battleship benefits mostly of old and tested designs that keep the number of refits and upgrades down to the pleasure of the Rosebourg fleet?s expenses.
