Pterodactyl1

Fig. 1.1: The A version of the Pterodactyl Heavy Carrier.

The Pterodactyl Heavy Carrier is one of the newest ships in the V.R.A., but has served well since its creation in 13447 HSY. Its two large hangars allow it to simultaneously deploy dozens of fighters into battle, making it a formidable support ship in any V.R.A. fleet. The ship was designed solely by Admiral Luroy Willow just prior to the Horovine-Jevoron Conflict.

History

Pre-Sigma

The class was first rolled out in 13447 HSY, just one year prior to the beginning of the Horovine-Jevoron Conflict. There was a huge storm of controversy regarding the design, as it was a radical departure from conventional V.R.A. ship designs. However, the ship proved itself to everyone during the aftermath of the First Battle of Bayrco, when it was used to great effect against Zevestivan forces fleeing the region.

First Zevestivan War

These ships were always found in larger V.R.A. formations throughout the war, and a number of them participated in the Second Battle of Bayrco in order to check a Zevestivan advance towards Horovine. The Zevestivan fleet was distracted by waves of fighters too small for their ships to target effectively, allowing larger ships to close in for the kill. Again, these ships proved their durability, as one had large chunks of its hull blown away, but was still able to limp home safely.
