The Bishamonten-class Assault Cruiser is a true heavy weight. Considered a 'pocket battleship', the Bishamonten marries several technologies and design methods to create the largest, and most lethal of the UNSC's cruiser fleet. It uses heavy duty weaponry to obliterate anything of a similar, or smaller tonnage, and uses advanced sensors to target and eliminate threats at extreme ranges. It uses new armour technologies that afford it high survivability, and automation to keep crew numbers down. It also have the facilities and superluminal communication arrays for it to be outfitted as a command ship, like the smaller Athena-class.
'Chances are, if this thing goes toe to toe with a super cruiser, its going to blow holes in that mother fucker. Only takes two Es-MAC strikes to take its shielding, then its game over.'
'Its officially supposed to take on enemy heavy capital ships, but hell, this things great for cutting up swathes of smaller warships, especially cruisers.'
'Those Stupid Brutes tried to swarm us with Cruisers to try and destroy the ship. We just out manoeuvred them then pounded them with smack slugs!'
