- “The Levitation, will change the Crusaders forever. We shall now be a feared navy.”— Degrad Falco, Formal Fleet Admiral of the Crusaders , During the Launch of the CAV Levitation.
Design and Planning
35 years before the Crusaders-Diaeon war, Fleet Admiral Degrad Falco wanted a capital warship with recovered Diaeon Tech, the outcome was the T1-11-15A Levitation class Supercarrier. It quickly became the most powerful ship in the Crusaders' fleet.
The Ship was built in 2 parts, the Upper Bridge section, and the Lower Body section. the Body itself took about 14 months to build, while the bridge section took 12 1/4 months, and it takes about a month just to connect the 2 section together. But when the ship was originally designed, it was planned to be built together, and had a estimated build time of over 3 1/2 years.
When scientests first reverse enginerred Diaeon tech recovered from a captured Thyon class battleship, Fleet Admiral Degrad Falco wanted all tech recovered from the ship to be studied, remade, and then used in a capital warship.
The Levitation class participated in numerous naval operations, such as Operation Kinetic, during the Crusaders-Diaeon War, and the most recent was when the CAV Solace destroyed the UAC Collidrium with a direct energy weapon.
2 Levitation Class Supercarrier was taken after it left the production yard and a Class 3 Superlaser was added instead of the triditional Type 119 Direct Energy Weapon. The Prototypes were destroyed to prevent capture by the Rebels.
A total of 19 vessels were made, heres the info on the ships built. All but 1 ship, the Solace was destoyed, and 8 was captured.
