The ships of Rambo Nation are various, numerous and mighty. They fight and fly to keep society humming in a world filled with peril and destruction. Their skippers are courageous, and their crew devoted, flying day and night to keep the borders safe. Here, is an unabridged encyclopedia of all vessels in the fleet.
Many of these ships take part in Battlefleets, Border Patrols, or Galactic Exploration. However, some of these ships have been removed from active duty. After the Second Galactic War, Empress Ramashe put in the V2 Act, retiring many ships from active service. Under the V2 act, vessel models would either be granted or denied V2 status, and those which were denied V2 status were retired.
The first ships were launched at 450 BQF, the date Rambo Nation went into space for the first time. From that time, more classes came into service and were withdraw, and some even returned in the new V2 fleet around 01 AQF. The Rambo Nation space ships fought in a lot of battles, and part of the fleet joined the famous and elite Fleet of Retribution. As of 04 AQF, some V2 ships recieved an upgrade, known as the Mk. II update.
Current Star Ships
The Current Star Ships of Rambo Nation were constructed after the Second Galactic War and during the Intergalactic War. Empress Ramashe ordered the massive Rambo Fleet to be re-evaluated, and many ships were decomissioned. However, some other classes recieved massive updates, so that the Rambo Fleet became more organisated and now battle fleets could be monitored better. The V2 fleet is also the strongest fleet Rambo Nation ever had in their history.
Light Cruisers are small, fast moving vessels capable of hitting hard, and then falling back to regroup and try again. They enable more precise, calculated maneuvers, as opposed to the lumbering movement of flagships and fighter carriers.
Battle Cruisers provide more firepower than light cruisers, and are more nimble than heavy cruisers or flagships, and serve as the go-between vessel for achieving a decent amount of firepower relatively quickly. They are cheaper, and thus more numerous than heavy cruisers, allowing them to concentrate their firepower, sometimes to greater effect than one large laser.
Heavy Battle Cruisers
Heavy Battle Cruisers are the 'big brothers' of battle cruisers, and pack a much greater punch. They have thick armor, impressive shields, and powerful weapons. This enables them to stay in the fight longer, and protect their smaller bretheren.
Flagships are the centerpieces of the fleet, sporting massive firepower, and superior armor to any other ship. They inflict massive destruction upon their targets, with a direct hit vaporizing all but the toughest enemies. One-on-one nothing can stand up to a flagship.
The Various Ships section is made up of various kind of ship classes, from medical ships to cvilian transport.
Fighters and shuttles
The Figther and shuttles are vital in the Rambo Nation fleet. They back up the larger ships, escort shuttles, and are occaisionally used for planetary exploration. Fighter pilots sometimes land in shuttle bays of new species, as a way to greet them quickly.
Ship weapons and defenses
Rambo Nation her ships weapon and defense systems are listed and descriped following the description on the SporeWiki technology page.
The Space ships of Rambo Nation primary weapon systems are phasers, often being fired from phaser banks or cannons. The phasers are designed to disable enemy ships and shields. Rambo captain often use the phasers for pin point and precise attacks, disabeling the enemies ship her engines, shield generators and weapon systems.
Sometimes, when facing cloacked ships or fighters Rambo Nation ships fire a so called "spread" phaser, firing multiply phaser beams in differant directions.
Torpedoes are a Rambo Nation ship her secondary weapon, but most of the time also her most powerful and devastating weapons. Captains often fire torpedoes to weaken enemy shields, or to destroy or heavily damage the enemy ship. Rambo Nation uses differant kind of torpedoes:
- Photon torpedoes: are warp-capable tactical matter/antimatter weapons, equipped with photon warhead for detonation. They are the most basic kind of torpedo of Rambo Nation.
- Quantem torpedoes: are tactical quantum weapons, that utilized a plasma warhead to cause severe damage to an enemy ships. Though quite common, not every class is able to fire and use quantem torpedoes.
- Phasic torpedoes: are special kind of torpedoes, only used by certain kind of ship classes. They can be devided in two differant kind of torpedoes:
- Transphasic Torpedoes(which deliver a subspace compression pulse which penetrates shields)
- Phased Plasma Torpedos (which partially phase through a ship's shields before detonating)
- Vortex torpedoes: the strongest and most dangeorus torpedoes of Rambo Nation. When detonated they create a small black hole, which consumes the target, though it needs a second vortex torpedo to close the black hole. It this not happens, no one knows the result, but Command fears an unstable black hole could create herself. Only certain type of ship classes are allowed to carry a maximum of 12 vortex torpedoes.
Rambo Nation also has other ways to defend themselves or to attack enemy ships or targets, besides only phasers and various torpedo types.
- Deflector Shields: Deflector shields or screens, generally referred to simply as shields, were a type of force field that surrounds a Rambo Nation space ship (or space station or planet) to protect the ship against enemy attacks or natural hazards. Deflector shields operate by creating a layer, or layers, of energetic distortion containing a high concentration of gravitons around the ship for protection. On the space ships the shield contains six sections, forward, starboard, port, aft, dorsal, and ventral.
- Deflector Dish: The deflector dish, also called the navigational deflector or deflector array is a component on (most) Rambo Nation space ships. The deflector dish can have two functions:
- Her primary function is to deflect space debris, small asteroids, microscopic particles and others objects that might collide with the space ship, whether travelling at impulse or at warp. The dish is always activated and can have differant kind of colours to represent that she is online and active.
- Her secondary function comes around when modifications are made to the dish. The dish can then fire a powerful beam (deflector pulse) to destroy objects, push away objects or generate a sub space explosion. The modifications allow such a pulse to be generated, but also prevents the pulse from rupturing EPS conduits, the warp core and prevents an overload to the ship, which might result in her destruction.
- Temporal weapon: The Typhon class her main weapon is a beam of temporal energy that pushed objects out of the spacetime continuum, effectively erasing them from history. Careful and meticulous calculations were required to create the exact changes in the timeline that were desired, it could be used at object, planets and even on solar objects like a star.
Ship Propulsion Systems
The means of propulsion is one of the most crucial components for the Rambo starships. Without it, they would be unable to traverse the vast interstellar distances between planets and star systems, making trade and commerce impossible as well as defending colonies against threats.
The Rambo use numerous kinds of propulsion systems, with the most common warpdrive and impulse speed.
- Impulse: Impulse is the most basic and slowest mean of propulsion. Impulse is often used to enter orbit or enter drydocks and is only used to cross relative short distances of space.
- Warp: warp drive is mean of propulsion which allows a vessel to travel at faster-than-light speeds. It works by generating warp fields to form a subspace bubble that envelopes the starship, distorting the local spacetime continuum and moving the starship at velocities that could greatly exceed the speed of light. The Rambo are known to be able to travel between Warp 1 till Warp 9.2. It is as well the most common means of travel in the Quadrants.
- Transwarp: transwarp-drive is a mean of propulsion that limitations of conventional warp drives by far extends. It allows a vessel to cross distances which with warp 9 would normally takes years. Limited only to the Wells-class, Typhon-class and Excelsior Class (Refit).
- Hyperspace: hyperdrive is a means of propulsion that allows starships to enter hyperspace and to traverse the vast distances of space at faster-than-lightspeed. Though it is faster than warp it is far slower than transwarp. A counter effect for the Nation means that only their dagger based ships (Acclemator/Caradhras class) can use this kind of travel.
Old Ship Database
This section contains all the ships ever constructed by Rambo Nation, both V1 and V2 ships are mentioned here at chronical order.
With it comes a detailed description like crew complement, size and which kind of ships are actually deployed and which name they bare. Also is mentioned which one are destroyed or withdrawn from active service. It is however badly outdated due to more modern ships getting their own pages.
|Original yet outdated ships database|
Akira Class (retired)
The Akira class was build in response to the threat of the Lizardians and the Grox around 16 BQF. As a heavy cruiser her firepower could match that of a Galaxy or Nebula Class of the V1 line. Near the end of her days is was frequently used in Battle Fleets and Task Forces, considered a new success. It is very manouverble and fast. The class is with the most modern weapons and technologies of that time. Admirals of the Fleet are eagerly asking for this class to join their fleets. The ship was capable of Warp 9.8.
After the Second Galactic War these ships have been retired from active service in the year 01 AQF. Akira Class V2
At an unspecified date in the future, Rambo Nation upgrade the Akira class was now improved and upgraded and ideal for the upcoming troubles the Nation faces.
Equipped with strong shields, phaser batteries, photon/quantem and transphasic torpedoes the vessels is quite the danger. Further more the Akira class is equipped with transwarp, the fasters way of travelling besides the use of a wormhole! The Akira class became the most common ships of Rambo Nation in the future and became a trusted sign for hope in their dark times. Notable Ships:
- USS Akira.
- USS Devastor.
- USS Essex.
- USS Geronimo.
- USS Red Cloud.
- USS Templar.
Ambassador Class (Retired)
A Science/heavy battle ship of the Rambo Nation. The predescessor of the Galaxy Class. Due to the need of stronger ships around the Heer Stekeveel War (278 BQF- 263 BQF), Rambo Nation launched the Ambassador Class, a heavy cruiser and capable of inflincting a lot of damage. In her time, she turned the war into favor of Rambo Nation. Because of the production cost, there were only three in service. Many years later the Enterprise C was made, after the loss of the Enteprise-B and more ships came into service. Around 0 BQF (second galactic war) the ships were still used in and served as heavy cruisers. The ships were equipped with phasers, photon torpedos, phaser emmiters and good shields. It was capable of Warp 9.8.
After the Second Galactic War the class was retired from active service and demolished in 01 AQF. In the year 04 AQF, the ships design were re-evaluated and the shipyards of Rowar prepare to re-launch the class and give her a V2 status.
Later on in 04 AQF, during the last week of the 12th month Rambo Nation official launched the Ambassador Class V2 into active service, a top of the line and modern ship only rivaled by the Galaxy Class and the Wells Class. As the Ambassador class recieved a multifuncional designation their were various variants of the Ambassador Class into service. As such the Ambassador Class V2 can be used for three differant roles:
The Ambassador Class V2 is capable of Warp 9.8, is equipped with photon and quamtem torpedoes. She is also able to fire both red and blue phasers and has the most up to date shieldgenerators.
Somewhere between 05 AQF/06 AQF the ship was slowly retired in favor for the Excelsior Classes V3.
- USS Adelphi. (destroyed)
- USS Adelphi II
- USS Ambassador.
- USS Aurora.
- USS Ayers.
- USS Cybele. (medical variant)
- USS Delphin (scientific variant).
- USS Enterprise-C.
- USS Excalibur.
- USS Gandhi.
- USS Thelian. (scientific variant)
- USS Yamaguchi.
- USS Zhukov.
The Antares Class are the cargo ships of Rambo Nation, already in service in the early years of Rambo Nation, they withstands the changes of Rambo Nation and became a prominent sight again after the Second Galactic War. The Antares Class are the only ships that are not neccesarily commanded by a Captain, First Officers are also allowed to command these ships. The ships are small in size, but can carry a lot of cargo (only cargo and not civillians). Over the course of years, the ship constantly recieved updates to match with shields, and phasers to the modern ships. She also recieved massive updates during the V2 update, but was not given the V2 status.
Altough the ship is known for her stability, the ship is also known as smuggler ship and is often the target of Rambo inspections.
- USS Antares.
- USS Hermes.
- USS Nowlan.
- USS Senzig.
- USS Woden
Armstrong Class (retired)
The Armstrong Class was created during the Early History era, using the old designs of the Bonaventura Class, the Armstrong Class became a modified version, used for defense in the Outer Regions, defending colonies like Javan. However, upon there launch they were already seen as old buckets and were mostly used for patrol duties in the Outer Regions. Near the end of the Golden Age era, the ships were not used in battles anymore (not like the Kelvin Class). But the Armstrong Class remained in acive service, functioning as transport ships in the Outer Regions, they still did this until their retirement in the year 04 AQF. They were equipped with photon torpedo's and phasers and decent shields. They could achieve Warp 6.5.
- USS Apollo.
- USS Armstrong.
- USS Endavour Pride.
- USS Hauler.
- USS Transporter.
A ship class even older than the Constitution and miranda Classes. This type is the first ship in Rambo Nation to recieve and make use of Warp Speed. The ship saw action just before the launch of the 1st Rambo Fleet and immideatly after the withdrawl of the Contitution Class.
There weren't many ships of this class constructed, so it wasn't a common sight. Most of the ships went on mission of exploration or were destroyed in the earlier conflicts. As of now none of these ships are in the Fleet of Rambo Nation, but they are still used as personal ships or as training ships for cadets. The ship was capable of Warp Speed 2, had shields and 1 transporter Room.
The Bonaventura is the oldest class of vessel in the entire fleet of Rambo Nation, and rarely active even after receiving V2 status. This is due to extremely wealthy Rambo Nation citizens buying them. Although Rambo authorities do not want to confirm the rumor, it is believed the wealthy aided Rambo Nation in funding the massive V2 Update program. Also, it is believed that, in gratitude, Rambo Nation allowed the rare Bonaventura Class to also be updated. In the update, it recieved improved shields, weapons and communications. For that reason the Bonaventura Class is rarely in battle fleets, and more frequently as a yacht for the wealthy.
During the sixth month of the year 04 AQF the Bonaventura Class was relaunched into active combat service. With the ongoing Great Cyrannus War and other conflicts, the Bonaventura class was retaken from the wealthy and upgraded to the V2 Mk. II version. Though some would say it is a complete other and new ship. With a sleaker design and more powerful shields and phasers, the class now sees action on the battlefield again. With the new update the ship can now also fire photon torpedoes.
Around 06 AQF/03 NE the class was often used as training ships for new cadets or young officers.
- USS Bonaventura.
-USS Coultrip. (destroyed during the Trogg Wars).
- USS Tiangle.
Cardiff Class (destroyed)
A heavy cruiser, with a ring shaped warp drive, like the Insector Ships. This ship is much stronger and faster, most of the time used as a cruiser or exploration vessel since being launched. The ship was designed by Rambo Nation and the Insector Eldarions, becoming one of the first joint design ships within the Alliance. Unfortunately, it took Rambo Nation and the Insectors more then a decade to agree on the design. They predict that this ship will be launched over 3 years, and that production is starting.
During the Second Galactic War the class was destroyed by the Imperial Alliance when it was docked at Rowar in the year 0 BQF.
- USS Cardiff (destroyed during 2nd Galactic War)
Centaur Class (retired)
A medium cruiser in the Rambo Space Fleet. The ships were designed for exploration and for battle, by using older desings the ships were easy to produce and replace when lost. That is the reason for most of them saw action during the Diva Bettie War. The ships were capable of Warp 9.2 and have all the modern weapons, transporters etc. of that time. Most of these ships were sent on patrol duties for the Mid Colonial Sector.
After the Second Galactic War these ships were retired from active service in 01 AQF.
- USS Carolina.
- USS Centaur.
- USS Cheiron.
- USS Madrid.
Cheyenne Class (retired)
The Cheyenne Class is medium cruiser, fast and used for short range exploration missions and rapid response. Although there have only been 2 of this ships sighted, it seems that they are only used for covert missions and perhaps have cloaking devices. Rambo Command denies this. It is known, however, that they are capable of Warp 9.9. Rambo Command later admitted the ship class did indeed excist, but the project was a failiure as the cloacking devices disturbed the internal systems. When Empress Ramashe recalled the entire fleet to give the V2 act in notice, the two ships of this class were destroyed and withdrawn from active service in 01 AQF.
- USS Ahwahnee
- USS Corinth
This ship is mainly used as a battle cruiser. The Constellation Refit class is capable of inflicting damage within short notice, and is seen in many one on one combat situations. The ship is used for long range exploration and patrol duties. Some of these ships are also seen in the fleets, but not often since most are assigned to border patrol.
The Constellation class has also recieved updates to keep up with the range of more modern ships. The ship has shields and all the weapons of current days, also the ship is capable of Warp 8.7.
The V2 Constellation Class are the battle cruisers of the Rambo Fleets in the years after the Second Galactic War. Active in every fleet, these ships can be counted on to win a battle. Their structure has been designed to be capable of achieving warp at a short period of time to confuse or trap enemy ships.
The structures of the ship also aided in the durability of the vessel, as it can contain massive damage and can still function. However, as the ships has 4 Warp coils, it can be severly crippled if they are destroyed.
In the seventh month of the year 04 AQF the Constellation Class recieved an upgrade, the so called V2 Mk. II upgrate. With a sleaker design and advanced weaponry, the newest addition of the Constellation Class can fire the red phasers. The class was updated due to the fact the Rambo needed newer and advanced ships to combat the Grox and the Confederacy, whom were treathening the peace in the Quadrant Galaxies.
The ship has stronger shields and can still achieve warp 8.7.
- USS Antietam. (destroyed during the Great Cyrannus War in 04 AQF)
- USS Canopus.
- USS Cochise.
- USS Constellation.
- USS Diadem.
- USS Fading Sun. (destroyed during the Battle of Fornaeria)
- USS Hathaway. (destroyed during the Tigris War)
- USS Stargazer.
- USS Vespucci.
- USS Victory.
Constitution Class (Retired)
One of the older classes in the space fleet. The Constitution was launched into action around the time of the devasting Trogg Wars (442 BQF). Although not upgraded like the Excelsior class this ship remained in use for quite some while. Mostly this ship was used for border patrol, and to warn and support the reinforcements. These ships are also called the 'cheap buckets'.
The Constitution Class V2 is the most famous ship class in Rambo Nation, the predecessor was famous in the Trogg Wars and with the V2 update she will surely play another crucial role in the coming conflicts of Rambo Nation. Although classified as heavy cruisers, they can also be used for long range exploration and the Constitution Class V2 became a preffered ship class for Rambo Captains. The Constitution Class V2 can be found in every fleet of Rambo Nation, whether it is in Battle Fleets or in Outer Colonial Fleets, the Constitution Class is a ship to be cautios with.
The ships were frequently found in the defense fleet of Captain Ramborwski, though during the Intergalactic War they were also seen in other fleets as Rambo Nation was in short of ships to use in combat.
The Constitution Class V2 Mk. II is an upgraded version of the original V2 version. Though at first not planned, the recent attacks by the Confederacy in 04 AQF showed the Rambo still needed better ships, and the Constitution Class was best suited for it. With the upgraded function of firing red and blue phasers by choice the Constitution Class V2 Mk. II is now better able to combat the enemy threat. Though the Class was relaunched during the ninth month of the year 04 AQF the ships were still a bit exclusive and not that seen a lot simply due to the fact not many were in service due to the Refit Class in service.
The ship was also given a sleaker and more modern design.
The Constitution Exeter sub-class, often just called the Exeter class is the upgrade of the Constitution V2 Mk. II and was launched in the second month of 02 NE. With a sleaker design, updated shields and warp cores the Exeter class has became once again the most common battle cruiser.
Het design became sleaker and more futuristic, as well giving the class a cloacking device the class will become the first line of defense for the Rambo Navy. However she still needs a large amount of crew to operate and still isn't able to fire quantem torpedoes. Due to her role as first line of defense her role as long range exploration cruiser has fallen, as all accomodation and labs have been replaced by either cargo/storage chambers or other dedications for militairy use.
Still with her cloacking device she is a deadly surprise for the enemies of the Rambo. All Constitution class V2 Mk II were upgraded to the Exeter-class by the second month of 02 NE.
A year later is was to be retired again due to her instable warp core and cloacking device.

Constitution Class (Refit)
Another old class in the fleet of Rambo Nation. These ships are upgraded and more powerful than the normal Constitution class. Found in smaller and older fleets at the borders of Rambo Nation's Space. They were mostly part of Captain Ramborwski's Defense Fleet in the Outer Colonies around 22 BQF till 0 BQF.
The Constitution classes recieved this upgrade during the Golden Age. The ships proved instrumental in the Mozel Crisis and the battles afterwards. These ships recieved better shields and weapons and are still capable of Warp 8.
The Constitution Refit Class V2 is a familair class similair to the Constitution Class V2. Though the Refit Class is slightly larger and is more build for combat instead of exploration. With extra phasers and torpedo launch bays the Refit Class integrates nicely into the Rambo Nation Space Fleet and has already proven her might.
the Constitution Refit Class V2 can be found in every fleet of Rambo Nation, whether it is in Battle Fleets or in Outer Colonial Fleets. The Class is often seen as the smaller sister of the Galaxy Class V2 but none the less, is a ship class to be catious with. Equipped with phasers and photon torpedoes.
In the year 04 AQF, the Constitution Refit Class recieved another upgrade, and was designated as the Constitution-Reftit Class V2 Mk. II. However, some believe it is an entirely new design and ship, only sharing similarities with the original versions. The Mk. II is larger, and is equipped with heavier weaponry and shields. The Mk. II is able to fire both blue and red colored phasers, with the red colored phasers being more powerful, but it drains the shields. The Mk. II can also fire quantem torpedoes, something the original Constitution variants aren't able to do.
Though the class is expensive to produce and contruct, for that reason the ship class isn't all that common and will more be used for space exploration and will only be called into battle as reinforcements, to surprise and overwhelm the enemy forces. All Constitution Refit Class V2 were overhauled to the Mk. II version.
In the second month of the year 05 AQF another variant was launched into service, the so called V2 Mk. III. This new variant was modified for long range exploration missions and recieved sleaker warp naccelles, a more powerful deflector dish and various accomodations for long range explorations (like a holographic room, movie room, astromatic center etc.). It is often called the Enterprise type. However shortly before the signing of the Concordat all Constitution Refit classes were upgraded to the re-modelled V2 Mk. III model.
In 02 NE the class was refitted once again to a more sleaker and futuristic look. The so called V2. Mk. IV version became a decent and trustable vessel, and in comporison with the Exeter sub -class the new IV version kept her exploration function as well as a heavy battle cruiser. Now able to fire quantem torpedoes and having new shields, the vessel was upgrade to combat newer threat and implement new technologies for space exploration, scientific purposes and defense and attack capabilities.
The Mk. IV versions were also equipped with a holo-deck, an update to accomodations and entertainment for the crew onboard ships.

Curry Class (retired)
These ships were launched under the Noble Alliance and are medium Cruisers. The Curry Clas are mostly found near the Central Systems, and on patrol. Another duty is the transport of Councillors and Ambassadors. During the Noble Alliance these ships saw their first action during the Mozel Crisis and were active later in the Algernon War. Even now, the ships see ongoing service in the Fleet, but with few ever produced. The class was equipped with standard weapons, shields and capable is of Warp 8.
After the Second Galactic War these ships were retired from active service in 01 AQF. Notable Ships:
- USS Curry.
- USS Drexler.
- USS Harryhausen.
- USS Simms.
- USS Sternbach.
Daedalus Class (retired)
A small space ship, most used for exploration and science, or as a personal ship for the rich. An old design from the same age as the Kelvin class. Although rarely used these days in the Rambo Fleet, since the ship's fire power is fairly weak. However, after the Second Galactic War these ships were retired from active service in 01 AQF.
- USS Deadalus.
- USS Essex.
- USS Horizon. (destroyed during the 2nd Galactic War)
- USS Kon-Tiki.
- USS Nightingale.
DCP/Rambo Hybrid (retired)
Created by Wormulon The DCP is one of the Rambo's strongest allies. During the DCP civil war, and other conflicts, the Rambo have always given their aid. However, in the War of Ages, the Rambo are taking heavy losses (and were about to be invaded by the Cognatus), and they were still recovering from the Second Galactic War. So, the DCP decided to give a life changing gift to the Rambo, some of their starship technology. The DCP believed the Rambo were advanced enough to use the technology wisely, and would destroy themselves with it. So, the gift was a starship, a hybrid of Rambo and DCP technology. Old systems have been kept, but are upgraded, and various new technologies were outfitted. It will hopefully aid the Rambo in future conflicts. The technical capabilities are only known to the highest ranking captains and offcials, but its capabilities are shown here to show the new changes.
After the March of the Apocalypse, which during the USS Basilisk was destroyed the Hybrid Class was withdrawn from active service and were not being used as a last resort, also the various technology was extensively studies by the Rambo Nation scientist, in search for a way to duplicate it or improve there own technology with it. The Transphasic class torpedo's are an example of this.
-USS Basilisk (destroyed during the March of the Apocalypse)
Defiant Class (retired)
The first ship class in Rambo History to be designed as a pure war-ship. Small, fast and powerful, the ship is a menace for many enemies. Equipped with the best weapons and technology of her time, the class was only built for combat and battle. It was launched in response to the recent attacks of the Lizardians, Grox, Algernon and Diva Bettie Empires. They were rushed into active service and have already proven their combat skills. The ship was capable of Warp 9.9.
After the Second Galactic War these ships were retired from active service in 01 AQF.
- USS Defiant.
- USS Gallant.
- USS Incessant. (destroyed during 2nd Galactic War)
- USS Saladin. (destroyed during 2nd Galactic War)
- USS Sao Paulo.
- USS Stalwart. (destroyed during 2nd Galactic War)
- USS Valiant.
Discovery Class (retired)
The Discovery class is a national ship, which doesn't fall directly under Rambo Command. The Discovery Class, designed together with the Diva Bettie Factories and Rambo Command, the ship became constructed at the Shipyards of Rowar. The class is used as cargo freighter, and is actually more effective then the two Serindia freighter counterparts, and these class can be commandeerd by any species, while the Serindia freighters cannot. Many of these class can be seen around Nertharia, transporting the weapons from and to planets and Nertharia. The class is designed to transport cargo, merchandise and trade througout the colonies in Rambo Nation territory.
The class became a common sight for independant traders or person whom could afford buying one. Though relative small, she is equipped with decent shields and 3 phaser banks. Eventually before 05 AQF/01 NE the class was retired by Rambo Command and sold to the private sector, as such the ships are still seen but have all lost the USS registration as they are not part of the navy anymore and as such are seen as retired.
- USS Adventure.
- USS Conestoga.
- USS Discovery.
- USS Explorer.
The Dreadnought Class is a ship class build by Rambo Nation in secret after the capture of the Burning Heretic, a Mortalitas Dreadnought. Studying the design, the Rambo modified the ship and began creating more of the class above the secret location of Lesrekta. The reasons for Rambo Nation introducing a Dreadnought like this, without war nacelles and the standard Rambo design of ships, is actually very simple. Recent enemies of the Nation have powerful ships, and the Rambo missed ships with the heavy fire power and as such they began creating the Dreadnought class.
When in fleets, she is often aided by other Rambo Nation Navy fleets, and back her up. Providing the perfect fleet, with fast and agile ships where the Rambo are known for, backed up by slower yet powerful pounding ships.
The class is equipped with a hyperdrive, thermal and rotating shields, phasers cannons, photon and quantem torpedoes.
- USS Burning Heretic
- USS Invincible
- USS Prosperous
- USS Rebel One
Trivia: The Dreadnought Class, like many of Dino's larger ships are excisting out of multiply parts.
Although an older design, it is a preffered ship by many due to it's effectiveness. These ships are produced a lot and are frequently updated with better weapons and shields. They are used for transport of Ambassoders or used in Battle Fleets. The ships were launched in the golden age and Rambo Command had high hopes for this class. The ships proved this and were produced in great numbers, becoming one of the most succefull classes in all of Rambo History. Even in the present day the ships are produced and upgraded. The ships are used for exploration, transport in battle fleets and patrol duties, or even investigation missions. Eventually the Excelsior also recieved a refit, it's prototype was the Enterprise-B. But after her loss there weren't any Excelsior refit class ships built until the Noble Alliance. Due to that, the class is identified as a Noble Alliance Era class.
The ship has shields, weapons of the present day, and the ships are capable of Warp 9.4.
The Excelsior Class V2, a famous class of Rambo Nation, and also one of the most powerful. They are typically commanded by Fleet Captains. The Excelsior Class is designed for battle and exploration, and is highly multifunctional. Some Captain believe that commanding an Excelsior Class V2 is a privilige, resulting in their great arrognace. The Excelsior is also a very fast class and one of the larger ones in Rambo Nation.
The V2 version was later on in her history upgraded once again.
In the year 04 AQF the Excelsior Class V2 recieved an upgrade, better known as the Excelsior Clas V2 MK. II. The Mk. II version has a sleaker design and has differant coloring than the original V2 version. Also due to this new design and updates the class is more agile that the original and has stronger weapons (like the red colored phasers).
All Excelsior Class V2 recieved this upgrade, and upon the start of the seventh month of the year 04 AQF all Excelsior Class V2 recieved the Mk. II statues. Though, like all other classes and versions the class will be named by captain and citizens as the Excelsior Class, and not mentioned with the V2 Mk. II line behind it. In 06 AQF/03 NE the class was upgraded to the first V3 version.
The V3 version of the Excelsior class is one of the more powerful cruisers seen that dateframe. The class became stronger and far faster than the Galaxy class- which was retired for that reason.
The new Excelsior class V3 is equipped with all modern weapons and shields, like photon and quantem torpedoes, but as well as transphasic torpedoes and a warpdrive wich can reach Warp 9.8.
Many ships are launched into active service of the new V3 version, as together with the Constitution Class (Refit) they will form the basic battle cruisers in the fleet, backed up by the backbone of the fleet- the Miranda Class.

Excelsior Refit Class
The Excelsior Refit Class is the upgraded version of the Excelsior Class. The upgraded version has an extra saucer section and is equipped with the most modern weapons and phasers with at top speed of Warp 9.8. Even though it is an old design the Excelsior Refit Class is still a preffered ship among the Fleet and their Admirals. One of these ships was already active in the time of the Golden Age, namely the Enterprise-B. But after that ship was lost it took a considerable period of time before and Refit Classes were made. Due to this the Excelsior Refit Class is seen as a Noble Alliance Era Ship.
The Excelsior Refit Class V2 is the most powerful ship of Rambo Nation (besides the Wells Class and the Rambo/DCP Hybrid Class) and most recent of the V2 fleet. The Excelsior Refit Class recieved additional decks and more powerful weapons than the normal Excelsior Class V2.
However, the Excelsior Refit Class V2 is also an expensive to construct, and thus only two have been finished, namely the USS Dallas of Captain Ramcard and the USS Enterprise-B of Captain Ramuchi.
As of 04 AQF all of the original V2 versions were called back to the Shipyards of Rowar. There they recieved a massive upgrade, even changed in appearance and coloring. The variant was named the Excelsior Class V2 Mk. II and is stronger and more efficient than the original V2 version. Equipped with phasers (blue and red), photon and quantem torpedoes. Even more, the Mk. II is equipped with the experimental Transphasic Torpedoes(which deliver a subspace compression pulse which penetrates shields) and the powerful Phased Plasma Torpedos (which partially phase through a ship's shields before detonating).
As of the start of the seventh month of the year 04 AQF ten ships were in active service, as the Mk. II version. In 02 NE the ship recieved a Mk. IV update, with a sturdier belly, improved warp engines (and transwarp) and updates shields and weapons the Excelsior refit class once again prove themselves to be the top of the line of the Rambo fleet and are worthy as flagships of the navy. Since 02 NE the class also recieved a standard of 4 Vortex torpedoes to use as a last measure.
Though callled the Mk. IV version, there actually was never a Mk. III in production, yet there were designs made for it the Mk. IV version proved to be better and as such the Mk. III idea was dropped. Yet the class turned out to be only short in production as it was soon withdrawn for another upgrade.
The V3 version of the Excelsior Class (Refit) became the flagships of the Nation. Only 6 of this is to come in service due to her high costs, but valuable assest to the Rambo Fleet.
The upgraded ship have better and effictive shields, phasers and are equipped with both transphasic, photon and quantem torpedoes. Build for battle and as well for exploration and recieving delegates of other nations, the ship has a multi-functional role and is only given to the best of the Rambo fleet has to offer.
The USS Dallas became one of the flagships of Rambo Nation in 06 AQF/03 NE.

Federation Class (retired)
After the success of the Constitution class in the Trogg Wars Rambo Nation needed some stronger ships for defense and patrol duties since the Constitution class was being used for exploration. This marked the beginning of the Federation Class, which strongly resembled the Constitution class but with an extra Warp Nacelle and better weapons. These ships were considered the Battle Ships of Rambo Nation at that time and feared by the Trogg. The ship class was also sometimes considered the 'Star' Line for it's beauty. But with the coming of the Excelsior Class and Constitution Refit Class, the ship soon lost it's title of the strongest ship in the fleet and was soon retired from active service.
- USS Federation.
- USS Star Empire.
- USS Star League.
- USS Star Republic.
- USS Star System.
- USS Star Scream.
- USS Star Union.
Forrestal Class (retired)
The Forrestal Class is an old design, after joining the V2 Fleet they were redisigned as fighter carriers and became an active sight on the battle field, although only designed to be fighter carries the Forrestal Class is also capable of defending herself, although she cannot match the Constitution or Miranda Classes.
After launching the many fighers (they can carry over 55 fighters) the ship withdraw from the battlefield and only enter the battle field to re-supply the fighters. Upon the introduction of the newly Orodreth Class the Forrestal Class was retired from active service as the new class proved to be more efficient.
In the twelth month of 04 AQF the ship was retired from active service.
- USS Forrestal.
- USS Inchon.
- USS Independence.
- USS Ranger.
- USS Shark.
Galaxy Class (Retired)
The Galaxy class is the pride of the Rambo Fleet, known for is versatility, power and longest prodcution time. The costs to produce this class of ship are high, but many see it as a good thing because of the ships' power and attitude.Currently, the ships are very active, almost replacing the Excelsior and Ambassador Classes. These ships are sent on exploration and are used in battle. If they are part of a Fleet, they are then part of the 1st or 2nd Fleet of Rambo Nation. Many Captains hope to one day command a Galaxy Class. Even though the ship is capable of war, the ship also has a lot of room for relaxing and civilians. The ships are capable of Warp 9.9.
The Galaxy Class V2 is a heavy cruiser exploration ship. Rambo Nation build this class in the after Rambam returned with the USS Venture from a alternate future. Build for both exploration and battle the Galaxy Class became the top of the line of the Rambo Fleet, considered the most promisable and strongest ship of the fleet, the Galaxy Class V2 will see many action on the front line and in various conflicts.
It is equipped with many phasers, quantem torpedos and photon torpedoes. It could also seperate her saucer if neccessarily.
In the 12th month of the year 04 AQF all Galaxy class ships recieved the V2 Mk. II update, with a sleaker design, better shields and weapons the Galaxy Class returned to the frontlines to combat her enemies. She is equipped with photon and quantem torpedoes and is also able to fire transphasic torpedoes. The class can achieve Warp 9.9 and is only rivaled by the Well class as most promisble and powerful ship class in the Rambo Nation space navy.
Around 05 AQF various small modifications to the appearance of the Galaxy were made to improve her hull armory. Though not changed as much most of the Galaxy-classes underwent this refit and as such the new version will be known as the V2 Mk II. V2 version.
Around the time the Capital fell under attack by the Galactic Empire in 01 NE most of the Galaxy-classes were given the new look but were forced to be retired later on under pressure of the Empire.

Hecatoncheir Class is one of Rambo Nation her superweapons, listed as part of the Rambo Nation Navy, the ship acts as a mobile militairy base. With a lenght of 7,845 meters the ship holds everything a militairy base also has, operational chambers, hangar bays, superior sensors and more classified stuff (even labs for experiments).
Further more, not only acting as a mobile militairy base the ship also acts a (massive) support ship for invasion by Rambo Nation, or to supply planet and fleets under siege. However due to her massive size, she stays out of battle and instead hides in another sector to prevent destruction. An odd design for Rambo Nation standards, the ship was launched in 05 AQF, and came with various towers, holding massive transwarp core, together with 15 engines to prevent overload of the systems, the ship is an impressive sight to behold.
The towers on the ship also hold various sensors, massive shield generators and more. Equipped with photon cannons, photon and quantem torpedoes and even some phaser banks, the ship is well capable to defend herself when needed. The ship also has large hangar bays, filled with fighters, transport vessels for troopers and even has a small drydock inside her to provide quick repairs to ships (ships have to dock near the massive cilinder).
- USS Adrammelech. (in production)
- USS Hecatoncheir. (in production)
- USS Zalera.
Trivia: Like other massive ships made by Dino, the ship excists out of multiply parts.
Intrepid Class (Retired)
A battle cruiser type ship, capable of fast attack and maneuver. It is also the only ship within Rambo Fleet that can land on a planet and take off with ease. The ship class is used for surveying, exploration, as couriers and cruisers. Equipped with good weapons the ship class has proven itself in combat. Many of these ships were used against the Grox. The ship is capable of Warp 9.9. The Intrepid class has been retired from active service, shortly before the Intergalactic War in the year 01 AQF.
As of 04 AQF design plans for the V2 were written on the design tables at the Shipyards of Rowar, and are expected to come into service within 3 years.
In the far future, upon the time of the Legacy Era a special type of the Intrepid Class was launched, but most were destroyed during a disaster and technical date is not availible.

- USS Bellerophon. (destroyed during the 2nd Galactic War)
- USS Dessalines.
- USS Dolphin.
- USS Intrepid.
- USS Pathfinder.
- USS Scorpion.
- USS Stargazer.
- USS Voyager.
An old ship class in the Rambo Nation Space Fleet (RNSF). The Kelvin Class saw action just after the Bonaventure class was launched and was part of the 1st Fleet. Many of this ship class were rushed into action. Even now, the ship class is still active in the Outer Colonies and are mostly part of Captain Ramborwski's Defense Fleet, although the ships lack the fire power of the Galaxy Class. The original version was well in active service and even saw action in the Second Galactic War.
The Kelvin Class is another old design, but also recieved a V2 status and remained a common sight at the Outer Colonial Fleets.
After there V2 update, the ship could now equall a Newton Class and became a common sight at battles in the Outer Colonial Regions. The Kelvin Class V2 is also sometimes used as exploration ship and intercepting ship. The ship can be classified as a Light Cruiser. They are the most common sight in Rambo Nation battlefleets and can operate with a minimun personall onboard. Many Outer Colonial Captains whom just graduated the Rambo Academy, are often given command of a Kelvin Class.
As of 04 AQF the Kelvin Class V2 recieved another upgrade, better known as the Kelvin Class V2 Mk. II. The Mk. II version is equipped with better shields and weapons, and can fire both photon torpedos and blue phasers. As such, the ship is jsut an upgrade to the others, and over time Rambo Command expects all original V2 version will be replaced by the Mk. II version.
Due to the upgrade, the Mk. II needs less crew to operate, making her more efficient.

- USS Tangent. (destroyed during the Lizardian Threat)
Korolev Class (Retired)
The Korolev Class is a heavy battle cruiser, launched in the seventh month of the year 04 AQF, shortly after the fall of Rametru Nui in Confederate hands. Command launched the class early on schedule to combat the Confederate threat and Grox assualts. With the breach of the Inner Colonial Defense Grid, there was a possibility that the Confederacy and Grox would launch an attack at the Rambo Capital. As such, most of these class are used exclusively in and around the capital of Rambo Nation, acting as a defense measure. The capital sector has a total of 15 Korolev Class defending the perimeter, but also act as a rapid response unit. In the future, Command also wants to put a small task force of Korolev Class at the most important colonies (Koerband, Rametru Nui, Javan, Ramaprica, Nertharia).
The class, together with the Wells and Excelsior Refit V2 Mk. II are the most advanced and expensive ships of Rambo Nation. The Korolev Class can fire both blue and red phasers, is equipped with photon and quantem torpedoes and carries a total of 12 phased plasma torpedoes. Even more important, due to the Onuris Alliance and SSA sharing technology the Rambo were able to equip the Korolev Class with a cloacking device, the first class in Rambo Nation capable of cloacking. She can achieve warp 9.
The vessel was retired from active service in 02 NE, due to the high costs of production and keeping her functional. The replacement can be seen in the Exeter sub-class of the Constitution Class, which there are many of and are cheaper to construct and easier relaced upon destruction of a vessel.

- USS Haarland.
- USS Korolev.
- USS Nimbus.
- USS Preserver.
Luna Class (retired)
These ships are named after Earth's moon in the Sol System and are often called the Moon Line. The ships are used for long range exploration and scientific missions, containing many labs, cargo bays and acommodations on board. The ship is armed as well, for protection from any specimens that prove unwilling to be surveyed.
Due to the troubled time and the threat of the Rambo Resistance and Lizardian Empire; Rambo Nation decided that the exploration program should continue, and Rambo Nation launched the Luna Class built, only for long range exploration, even beyond Quadrant 82. It was this class that entered the wormhole and made contact with the Seven Starr Alliance. But another was destroyed when it entered a nearby Qaudrant and was caught in an Ion storm and anti-graviy waves. There are risks on serving on these very long range exploration ships. The ships were capable of Warp 9.8 and equipped with phasers and quantem torpedo's.
The Luna Class was retired from active service after the Second Galactic War in the year 01 AQF.
- USS Callisto
- USS Charon (destroyed by ion storm)
- USS Europa
- USS Galatea
- USS Ganymede
- USS Lo (destroyed in anti gravital wave)
- USS Luna (destroyed during encounters in the Legacy Era)
- USS Oberon
- USS Rhea
- USS Titan
- USS Triton
Merced Class (Retired)
Based upon the Excelsior class, these ships are newer, faster and more powerful than the Excelsior class. The Merced class is a heavy cruiser but is not as massive as a Galaxy Class. Some say these are the replacements for the very successful and populair Excelsior Class, but others say they will only be used in battles. This would give them a short service length, due to the already more effective battle ships like the Galaxy, Sovereign, New Orleans or the Prometheus Classes. The Merced Class are being tested as corvettes and support vessels, being very powerfull and fast. It is said that these vessels are capable of Warp 9.9 and are using a new transport system, namely Transwarp. But this is of yet unconfirmed, since Transwarp is highly dangerous and has been made illegal by the Noble Alliance. This could mean why Rambo Nation would like to use it...
Already an experimental ship before her V2 status, the Merced Class kept her special status after the V2 update, and became one of the most powerful ships of Rambo Nation. The Merced Class is one of the only ships that can use Transwarp, or fire multiple quantum torpedoes at once. The most notable Merced Class is the USS Capricaerón, flagship of Captain Rambas II's fleet and a common sight in the Cyrannus Galaxy. The Merced Class recieved some drastic changes, both external and internal.
The Merced Class V2 is an upgraded V2 version, with better weapons and shields, better design this ship will be trustable battle cruiser.
In the sixth month of the year 04 AQF the Merced Class recieved another upgrade, the so called V2. Mk. II upgrade. The class was equipped with better weapons and shields and was given a redesign and became sleaker and more advanced. The ship is now able to fire the blue phasers, which are stronger and the standard blue ones, though they drain the shields, thus weakening them.
With a new design the class also become classified as a battle cruiser and not as a flagship anymore, much to the dismay of some captains in the nations.
In 02 NE the ship was pulled out of active service in favor of other vessels.
- USS Calypso
- USS Capricaerón (destroyed in the aftermath of the Battle of New Ramhall)
- USS Merced (destroyed during the 2nd Galactic War)
- USS Pomori
- USS Pumori
- USS Trieste
A smaller and old class in the space fleet, the Miranda comes from the age of the Constitution but is still very much in use and a preffered small ship. This ship class was launched after the introduction of the Constitution class. Although smaller, it's fire power can match that of a Constitution class. The ships were mostly used for patrol duties and as battle cruisers in Space Fleets. Even in the present fleets these ships are often used because of their agility. As of today, the shields and weapons are often upgraded and still sees many action against the Grox, Lizardians or Algerons. The ships are capable of Warp 8.
The most common battle cruiser of Rambo Nation, the Miranda Class V2 is an active ship in many prominent fleets, they have almost the same firepower as a Constitution Class, but are smaller in size. Perfect for swift attacks the Mirand Class V2 is a standard ship class in battle fields.
The ships are very agile and fast, that is why many Fleet Captains want many a Miranda Class in there fleet. But, the Miranda Class can also be problem in fleets, as some classes are not agile, sometimes a Miranda Class V2 cannot use her full agility in battles, as coalisions with allied ships would not benefit Rambo Nation at all.
None the less, the Miranda Class V2 is a very succesfull class, and many will know this class as a difficult and though enemy.
In the seventh month of the year 04 AQF the Miranda Class recieved an upgrade, the so called V2 Mk. II upgrade. With it she can fire photon torpedoes and red phasers. She also has stronger shields and a sleaker design. The class, a populair and trusted class within the Nation needed this upgrade to better combate the Grox threat and the Confederay around the time of her upgrade.
She is capable of warp 8 and will be seen a lot in fleets and patrols.

Miranda Class (Variant)(retired)
During the time of the Diva Bettie War and the forming of the Noble Alliance the Miranda class was upgraded and refit with better weapons and shields. Although these ships performed identical duties to the pre-refit Miranda Class, the ships were considered better than before the upgrade.
Many of these ships served in the Diva Bettie War and were lost in battle. Today they are still produced and are in active fleet service. However, near the end of the Second Galactic War the ships were retired and send to the Orbital Shipyards of Rowar, to prepare them for the V2 Fleet.
- USS Devastor.
- USS Lantree II.
- USS Saratoga.
- USS Valor-A.
Nebula Class (retired)
A smaller Cousin to the Galaxy Class, but none the less a very strong vessel, nearing the power of its larger cousin. Mostly these ships lacks the space for civilians and is really only built for battle. The ships saw much action during the Algernon War and stood their ground very well. The ships have a good defense abilities and attack abilities.
The ships are capable of Warp 9.8 and are seen in many battles. After the Second Galactic War these ships were retired and send to the Shipgraveyards in the year 01 AQF. Notable Ships:
- USS Endeavour-C.
- USS Hera.
- USS Farragut. (destroyed during the Second Galactic War)
- USS Lexington. (destroyed during the Second Galactic War)
- USS Nebula.
- USS Phoenix. (destroyed during the Imperial Galactic War)
New Orleans Class (withdrawn)
A medium cruiser, this ship is capable of fighting in Fleets and in Task Forces. Although bigger than some other ships, the New Orleans class is also capable of exploration missions and ferrying of civilians. Some see this ship as a smaller version of the Galaxy class, although its power is nowhere near that of the larger ship. Captain Ramborwski also uses one of these ships as his Flag Ship in the Outer Colonies, although most ships are found in the Inner Colonies or in the Capitol regions. The ship is capable of Warp 9.8.
The New Orleans class was retired from active service after the Second Galactic War in the year 01 AQF.
The New Orleans Class V2 is a ship class which was rushed into service due to the lost Battle of Karzhamahri-Nui. Still haunted with teethings, it is already seen as the little sister of the Galaxy Class V2. The ship was launched in 04 AQF in the 5th month of the Quadrantia Disorder.
Though way more smaller than a Galaxy Class, her fire power matches that of the Excelsior Class V2. Only the most prominent captains were given the new class as it is considered the newest and modern class, surpassing the use of the Constitution Class and Miranda Classes in the Inner and Mid Colonial Sectors. Agile, fast and equipped with phasers, photon torpedos, quantem torpedos and the newest to date multi-adaptive (deflector) shields. The new shields provide invisibility on long range sensors and transporters are able to penetrate the shields without lowering them!
The New Orleans Class V2 already is a promising ship class, with new technology and multiply tasks like combat vessel, science and exploration capabilities. Sadly due to the expensive costs and various teethings the class was suffering it was withdrawn from active service and send back to the shipyards. Command and the Shipyards to not know when the class will see active service again.
At an unspecified future time date, Rambo Nation reintroduced the New Orleans class and gave it the V2 Mk II prefix. The ship, ideal for exploration and combat can be seen as the successor for bot the Excelsior and Constitution-classes as it far more efficient. The class is faster, sleaker, equipped with more advanced equipment than other vessels but takes time to construct and is quite expensive compares to other ships of her time, i.e. the Akira-class.
The New Orleans is equipped with the same shields as the Akira class, has the same photon/quantem/transphasic torpedoes and is also capable of transwarp as well as warp. Her science lab and medical center is state of the art. Notable Ships:
- USS Dinoman82.
- USS Herbert.
- USS Jefferson. (destroyed during the Battle of Koerband in the Great Cyrannus War(04 AQF))
- USS New Orleans.
- USS Ramashe.
- USS Renegade.
- USS Rutledge.
- USS Santa Fe.
- USS Savannah.
- USS Thomas Paine.
Newton Class (retired)
The light cruisers, the Newton Class are an often sight at the Outer Colonial Fleets are an old design, which recieved many an update. The Newton class became part of the V2 fleet after the Second Galactic War and were now used as intercept and escort cruisers. There speed and agile is suprisingly good, for such an old design, but the shields of a Newton Class are not that impressive. The Newton Class is also used as civilian transport, exploration ships and sometimes as smuggler ship.
In the seventh month of 04 AQF the class was retired from active service. Notable Ships:
- USS Celsius.
- USS Diplomacy.
- USS Fahrenheit.
- USS Newton.
- USS Solo.
Normandy Class (Retired)
The Normandy Class is a new ship class build for the V2 fleet, this ship is constructed for civilian transport, and has rooms for crew and civilians. When the Empress uses this ship, she can use the luxary rooms.
The ship class has decent shields, but lacks any strong defences, although she can fire phasers, they are fairly weak as the ship is not build for combat, but for transport of civilians and luxary. Yet she is equipped with phasers, shields and can fire photon torpedoes, as such it is listed as a light cruiser. Though buying a ticket with armed transports are expensive. The Normady Classes are not travelling in every region of Rambo Nation, and are often escorted by Rambo ships or fighters.
Around 01 NE the civilian the Normandy class finally recieved her V2 update, upgrading her shields, systems and warp drive. Though still not equipped with quantem torpedoes, her designation as civilian transport gave Rambo Command the vision that the class only needed a few photon torpedoes and a few phasers. However she recieved the same shields as the Galaxy and Excelsior classes, to upgrade her defenses.
With the V2 version it seems the Sydney class will be retired soon or sold to the private sectors as the Normandy V2 version seems to be a better ship, both by systems but also by agility. Because of her luxary civilian rooms and accomodations, the ship remained to have her old ship design look, to improve nostalgic feelings to the civilians. It was retired between 05 AQF and 06 AQF due to her easily destroyed when under attack and not deemed suited anymore for transport of civilians.

- USS Mont Saint-Michel.
- USS Normandy.
- USS République.
Norway Class (retired)
The Norway Class is a response to the latest threat of the Lizardians and the Algernon. Because of the threat, Rambo Nation needed more advanced ships, which were capable of fighting battles, like the Akira, Steamrunner and Saber classes. So the Norway class was designed only for combat. Not like the Galaxy class, which was designed for exploration. The Norway Class is fitted with the most modern technology and weapons and is capable of Warp 9.7. They see much action against the bigger and more powerful ships of the Lizardian Empire and the Grox.
After the Second Galactic War these ships were retired from service in the year 01 AQF.
- USS Albany.
- USS Budapest.
- USS Canopus. (destroyed during the Imperial Galactic War)
- USS Norway.
- USS Stavanger.
- USS Tannu Tuva.
Oberth Class (retired)
A small ship, used mostly for exploration or scientific matters. The ships are also used for scouting. It is still used and remains part of the RNSF (Rambo Nation Space Fleet). The ships are also used as a testbed for things such as new Warp cores or weapons. The ships are also still constructed at the Fleet Yards. Even in the present day you see this ship is still a common sight, seeing high use. The ship's weapons and shields are frequently updated with the present maximum speed of Warp 8. These are decent ships, well capable of self-defense.
After the Second Galactic War, these ships were re-tired from active service in the year 01 AQF. They are equipped with Model 8 Warp Drive, shields, one tranporter room, phasers and photon torpedos.

- USS Yosemite.
The Olympic class looks differaent than other Rambo Ships, it also lacks weapons, but has powerful shields and act as Medical Ships. They contain many Sick Bays, Cargo Bays and surgery rooms. It is, in fact, a hospital in space. They are not used in fleets, but more used after or they are send between Colonies to pick up the wounded.
Sometimes the ships also assist in evacuations of Colonies or Planets. They also assist ships who are heavily damaged. The ships are capable of Warp 8, but when there are criticaly wounded on board the ships don't go beyond Warp 5.

After recieving the V2 status these ships recieved better systems and can now treat more patients at a time.
In the 12th month of the year 04 AQF the Olympic class was withdrawn from active service.
Around 06 AQF/03 NE the Olympic class returned into active service. After years of upgrading the class finally recieved the V2 Mk. II mark and was upgraded with better shields, photon torpedoes and a few phasers.
The class was also equipped to function as a full acedamic mobile hospital- with body scan equipments, blood labs etc. Though the class also contains various science labs as well to assist the medical crew.

Orodreth Class (retired)
The Rambo Nation Orodreth Class is a newly constructed ship by the Shipyards of Rowar, replacing the outdating Forrestal Class this new dagger form ship became a new sight at Rambo Nation Fleets. Though her battleship capabilities make her also an excellent battleship which can make her own mark at a battle. With shields, integrated technology of the various races the Orodreth Class is a promising ship for the Rambo Nation Space Fleet.
Many of these ships protect the Suiliagothrond Battlestation and are part of her first line of defense. In the seventh month the ship class was retired in favor of the Korolev Class.
- Rand Ecliptic.
Phoenix Class (Retired)
The Phoenix-class is one of the most advanced starships (second only to the Wells and Galaxy Class) of the Rambo Nation's armada. With her large size she is build for battle and is equiped with 20 phaser arrays, quantum and photon torpedos and is capable of Warp 9.975. The ship is a joint project by the URC and Rambo Nation. However, it is used solely by the Rambo Space Fleet and is most seen in active duty in service of the Fleet or Retribution, the most elite fleet of the Quadrant and Cyrannus Galaxies.
Though large, the ship is quite agile and is equipped with powerful shields to defend herself from hammering attacks. With large warp engines this ship is a dangerous encounter! The ships are constructed by the Shipyards of Rowar, but some in the Cyrandia Alliance also believe they should be constructed at the other headquaters of the Cyrandia Fleet, Cyroenia, much to the anger of the workers at Rowar.
Due to her large size and threat to Empire ships the Phoenix-class was retired from active service at orders of Garlboz.

The Prometheus class is a battle ship; launched due to the frequent attacks of the Resistance, the Lizardians and the Grox, Rambo Nation needed a new kind of ship. After much research it became this class, a strong and fast ship, capable of reaching Warp 9.9 and stronger than a Galaxy or even Sovereign Class.
At the current time there is only one Prometheus class ship in service, namely the USS Prometheus. The production has finished and she already has made her maiden voyage, but has not yet been assigend to a mission. It is said that the ship is capable of splitting apart in 3 seperate ships, but these reports are not yet confirmed by Rambo Command. The Prometheus class was retired from active service after the Second Galactic War.

Quetzalcoatl Class (Retired)
The Quetzalcoatl Class are the precessors of the Constitution Class and are classified as Heavy Battle Cruisers, containing massive fire powers and powerfull shields, the Quetzalcoatl Class are the most powerfull ships in the Outer Colonial Fleets, although it cannot match a Excelsior Class V2 her firepower, she can severly damage such a class.
When becoming part of the V2 fleet, the Quetzalcoatl Class recieved the ability to fire quantem torpedos. However, the ship class is not very agile, nor very fast and as such, has a great disadvantage to fighters and small and fast ships. On the other side, the Quetzalcoatl Class can recieve quite a bit of damage before being crippled. The ships were once flagships of Rambo Nation and were known as the Shining Stars.
In the tenth month of the year 04 AQF the V1 version was put out of service in favor of the newer V2 version, with a sleaker design and a third warp naccelle, the ship became even more powerful than before. With the upgrade the ship is now able to fire both blue and red phashers, has newer shields and photon torpedoes.
The ship has 3 hangar bays, able to carry a small squadron of Lightning fighters, the hangar bays are located at the back of the ship and two hidden doors in the saucer. Still not very agile, the ship can take a lot of damage before being crippled and can hammer on enemy ships well on her own. Though not flagships anymore, captains are still happy to see a Quetzalcoatl Class coming to their aid.
Due to her old age and structure the ship was retired from active service in 02 NE, though some still prefer to use this kind of vessel and were allowed it.

Although not produced in this time anymore, the ships are still active in the Outer Colonies, using their long range communications devices to provide optimal contact with the Inner Planets and Rambo Command. The ships are capable of Warp 8.7 and have medium weapons.
The Soyuz Class V2 is the updated version of the normal Soyuz Class, after recieving a massive update and a drastic changes in her appearance, the Soyuz Class became a support ship, and is not often found in battle fields. The prime function of the Soyuz Class V2 is making sure that long range communication will be online constantly and can be monitored to Outer Colonies and other deep space ships. However, as the Soyuz Class is also a luxary class, it also became a diplomatic ship, often used for transport of Ambassadors and other high officials of Rambo Nation.
The Soyuz Class is also equipped with decent shields and phasers. In the 12th month of the year 04 AQF the Soyuz class was withdrawn from active service.
- USS Bozeman.

As of today, the ships are still in use and also see action in important battles. The ships Warp capability is Warp 8.9. Near the end of the Second Galactic War these ships were retired from active service in 01 AQF.

The Sydney class is a Rambo Nation space ship class, designed with the USS prefix. Yet due to being a civilian transport the class is only equipped with shields and can achieve warp 7, it has no weapons to protect herself from an attack, except the agility and shields can protect the vessel.
The class can carry up to 360 civilian passengers, each having their own rooms. The ship is also equipped with a small cinema, a casino and a swimming pool for relaxing purposes. They even have a shop and training excersise room onboard for those whom wish to sport.

The Typhon Class is a one of a kind. Constructed during the Three Silver Years it reached complement during the year 04 AQF. Not a standard Rambo design, the ship is equipped with a temporal weapon. The weapon (located under the belly of the ship) can fire a beam of energy, which pushes objects out of the time continuum. This method effectively erased the target from history. Careful and meticulous calculations were required to create the exact changes in the timeline that were desired, for example to restore a heavily damaged planet, or to erase an enemy force.
Yet the ship cannot be used without permission of the Empress, and Rambo Nation is very careful with this weapon, as there is only one ship in construction. And the ship, though equipped with 4 warp nacelles is very slow and an easy target.
The temporal core, deep within the ship enables the beam to be fired and used. The ship is also equipped with many phasers, photon and quantem torpedos. Though when the weapon is loaded, the shields have to be lowered and is then very vulnrable. This class is also classified, but Rambo Nation knows that one day her excistence will be discovered.
- USS Typhon.
- USS Krenim. (on design table)
The Wells Class is by far the most powerfullst ship of Rambo Nation, the only ship in service is the USS Relativity, and was contructed by the Rambo God Liuetenants. Responsible for discovering the location of the Ancientia Kingdom her homeworld, it later returned to Rambo Nation and when the V2 Fleet was formed, command was given to Captain Ramaxar and the USS Relativity became the flagship Rambo Nation.
Around 03 AQF the ship was upgraded with Dark Gyronic reactors, making the ship faster and powerfuller then before with aid of the Taldar.
The Wells Class technical specifications are classified.
- USS Relativity.
- USS Polarity (in production)
Figther and Shuttle Database
These small fighters of Rambo Nation were constructed after the Second Galactic War. Lightning fighters are carried by the Forrester Class. The fighters are now very active in the various conflicts of Rambo Nation and her front lines. Lightnings are rather small, and the decks of the Forestall Class carriers fit many. In addition, Lightings' high manueverability makes them a more than a match for enemy fighters; although Rambo Nation does not want publicy to admit it, these fighters were constructed with aid of the Ancientia.
THe Peregrine is the most powerful fighter of Rambo Nation, and function as the first attack wave in the V2 Fleet. They are nimble, but not as much so as the Lightning. Due to an advanced cloaking shield, they are also used as scouts. Peregine fighters fly in formation, as this concentrates their firepower. A combination of Peregrine Figther-Bombers and Lighting Fighters have been cited for turning the tide of many battles.
Rambo Nation Argo Shuttle
Argo shuttles are the new military shuttles of Rambo Nation, stationed at airfields and Forrestal Class ships, they can transport Rambo soldiers and space marines to the battlefield, and extract them, even in the heat of battle. Not only does the Argo carry troops, it is also capable of delivering small vehicles and artillery pieces, but is still in Mod 0 condition, with no changes made as of yet.
Rambo Nation Executive Shuttle
The luxury Executive class is often used by Senators for diplomatic visits. However, due to their weapons and shields systems, the shuttles are listed as part of the Rambo Nation Space Fleet. Their Warp 8 speed is only for use in emergency situations, but the shuttle is very agile nonetheless. Its crew consists of a pilot, co-polit, and a security force of Seven Starr Serindia guards.
Rambo Nation Interstellar Tug
The Rambo Nation Tug's are small space craft equipped with powerful tractor beams (thanks to technical information of the Novae) and can guide ships into docks by using there tractors beams. They can also take shuttles in there tractor beam to guide them to there docks or shuttle plattforms. The Tugs can mostly be found at Space Stations and at large space ports. A great number of them are found at the Shipyards of Rowar, to guide ships to and from the repairs docks.
Rambo Nation Shuttle
The Rambo V2 Shuttles are the most common shuttles found at Rambo Nation, and act as short-range ferries. Their uses include interplanetary, intership, and planet-to-ship travel. They are found everywhere, and can be re-equipped for various roles, such as: a moblie research station for nebula and unidentified planet observation, a light cargo vessel, or a private ship for important officials.
The original line of the shuttles have the same specifics, except for size. These were known as the shuttles V1, the V1 L version (larger than the original) and the special Cruiser type, but these kind of shuttles were all replaced in favor of the Rambo Shuttle V2, which was launched in the year 01 AQF.
Unification Fighter (Retired)
The Unification fighter is constructed by the Shipyards of Rowar, is equipped powerful batteries, phasers and photon torpedos, and has become the back bone of the Rambo Nation fleet, together with the Lightning fighters. The Unification fighters share the Lightning fighters' speed, agility and ability to warp for short distances.
Around 04 AQF the Unification Fighter was withdrawn from active service and sold to the private Chinawkya fleet.
“A mixed fleet between sleak and fast ships, aided by slower yet more pouwerful ships the Rambo fleet is one to be careful with”
“One of the mightiest forces in the Gigaquadrant. Those who underestimate the Rambo do so at their own risk.”
