The Uraga class escort carrier was developed by U.N. Spacy as the next generation successor to the earlier Guantanamo class stealth carrier. Like the Guantanamo, the Uraga was built with stealth in mind and was also assigned to planetary defense and migrant fleets. It featured a multi-deck launching system and could accommodate up to 75 variable fighters. Its armaments included anti-ship/fighter weapons. Although the Uraga acted as a successor to the Guantanamo, the two classes frequently served side-by-side, as late as 2067.
