Pulling up an old save, I decided to update a Battlecruiser design with some new ideas I have.

I heard you can make a self-jump drive of any size and the ship can jump itself even if it's too small, so I decided to test it out. If that doesn't work, it's only 1 HS of wasted space.

Here's my updated BC design:

`Arcana Imperii class Battlecruiser 50,000 tons 1550 Crew 43435.6 BP TCS 1000 TH 18000 EM 36000`

18000 km/s JR 1-750 Armour 10-120 Absorption 1200-160 Sensors 1/1/0/0 Damage Control Rating 20 PPV 468.8

This design is classed as a Military Vessel for maintenance purposes

I am also thinking of replacing all the giant lasers with particle beams. Giant lasers will one shot any ship, but their reload is too slow and I need to charge into 100,000 km to be effective.
