|The UEC Sanctus|
Blue Planet: War in Heaven Tech Description
The Sanctus occupies a tactical space between the Karuna frigates and the old GTA Great War-era cruisers. The UEF military officially designates the Sanctus as a next-generation cruiser, though the ship's dimensions approach those of the Vasudan Sobek class corvette. The cruiser was designed with the Federation's philosophy of generalisation in mind, and as such has enough cargo space to serve as a military freighter and transport while still performing adequately as a warship. Although numerous and tactically flexible, the Sanctus is so broadly deployed that casualties are simply inevitable.
Sanctus is Latin for Holy. As an Ordinary of the Mass, it is a hymn that is sung as the final words of the Preface of the Eucharistic Prayer.
