Technical and Historical Notes

 

The Squid class battleship is designed by the Zanscare Empire to serve as the control and defense unit for the Keilas Guilie attack satellite. Like several other classes of Zanscare ship, the Squid features dual bridges and launch catapults on the top and bottom of its body. With a length of 656 meters, the Squid class is one of the longest battleships ever fielded. Its armaments include eight main guns and eight multi-launchers. In UC 0153, the League Militaire captures a Squid, which is disassembled and combined with the old Earth Federation Forces cruiser Reinforce to form the battleship Reinforce Junior. Several other Squid class ships are fielded by Zanscare throughout the war.
