The kzinti empire today announced the trial and subsequent execution of the designer and overseers of the refit of the kzinti light cruiser for crimes against the empire, high treason, and giving aid to the empires enemies. The trial was extraordinarily long of nine minutes. The trial resulted from a battle between the racially inferior lyrans. The lyrans were using the lyran light cruiser.
End press release


The battle was interesting. at the end both ships were crippled with the kzinti having only 14 points of shield on shield 5. The lyran had full shields on shield 4 and shield 6 had 15 boxes the rest were down.

Turn 1 ended range 14 with 4 points damage tolerant shield 2

Turn 2 speeds 16
4 points damage to kzinti on weapon tract and about twelve
Internals from lines 4 and 5 on the lyran

Through the whole combat the. Lyran was kept from over running ,mostly by having to deal with drones

Turns 3 and 4 pretty much the same
Kizinti speed Eight Do to need of power for weapons. the lyran at speed 16 firing four or five phasers at range five and then tuning away to get hit in the flank by the disruptors and two phaser ones. Each pass destroyed a shield.

Turn 5 lyran speed eight recharging esg's , kizinti speed 16.
Turn 6 both speed 16.
Turns. 5 and 6 saber dancing about range 15 with shield damage about equal.

Turns 5 and 6 reloading drones

Turn 7 kizinti had shields only on shield 5 and shield one and two had 14 points each. Kizinti speed 0 for the turn mode of 1. Lyran speed 16. Again lyran pass came in shooting at range 5 with5 phaser ones then turns away. Kizinti did not fire do to need to keep lyran away by doing more damage. Lyran hit again in flank.

Turn 8
Kizinti no power damage yet but no shields on
1,3,4,6 only about 5 internals with loss of Both left side phaser 3 s. Shield 2 had 11 boxes left. One drone rack was empty.

Lyran had 22 internal damage but only lost one phaser 3 but down to 19 power.

Kizinti did speed zero did. Third successful het to put shield 2 facing lyran.
At range 2 fired 3 drones. Range one took 16 esg and 3 phaser ones , shuttle in hex took 6 of the esg about 18 more internal but lost 2 phaser 3 a nd a disruptors. Did not shoot because I was hoping for a flank shot again or a range zero shot which I got. Lyran had full 24 frot shield. At range zero lyran and kizinti crippled.

At end kizinti had decided to leave do to lack of shields. Kizinti had 14 power 1 phaser one ,
2 disruptors and 3 drone racks left, 2 frame left.
Lyran had 3 or 4 phasers ones a disruptors and one esg and about 15 power but an almost full front shield 6.


Moral of this story. At speed 16 or better the lyran out gunned the kizinti a lot do to 6 phaser ones .

The kizinti would have been a much better light cruiser with 2 disruptors and 4 phaser ones. I would actually like to see a kizinti light cruiser card with this configuration.

The last 2 turns were fought at extreme edge of the map.

Yep, Kzinti CL isn't very good. As built, it had only 2 disruptors but they "upgraded" it to four later in a vain attempt to keep it competitive with opposing ships. Most of them were destroyed in first few years of General War.

Yep. Remember that Kzinti ships were really designed to fight other Kzinti ships.

The game has a lot of ships, some of which aren't that great. If every ship in the game was perfect and every ship in the game was the best in its class, we'd just decide every battle with one die roll.
