Heidelsheimat-class Battlecruiser (BC)

Original Date of Design: 	18 Apr 2282
First Example Laid Down: 	01 Apr 2283
First Example Completed: 	26 Aug 2385
Fleets of Service: 		Bavaria

The Heidelsheimat-class battlecruiser was built by the German splinter state of Bavaria with French technical assistance. Originally expected to be named the Bavaria, the class was renamed in mid 2285, following the start of construction of a more powerful battleship class that would bear that name. The battlecruiser was a powerful ship in its day, though it has been supplanted in that role by more modern designs, such as the German Bismarck.

  1. Turret arc values are (counter clockwise from left center): 1 bow, 2 starboard bow quarter, 3 starboard broadside, 4 starboard aft quarter, 5 aft, 6 port aft quarter, 7 port broadside, 8 port bow quarter.
  2. Fighters require three turns to launch or recover hanger deck is considered adequate.
  3. Landers require three turns to launch or recover per deck hanger decks are considered adequate.
  4. Hull Hit Capacity has been determined using the formulas presented by KevinC on the 2300AD Mailing List on 10 Oct 1997, where the standard calculation has been modified by the use of the cube root of the armor level instead of armor level to the first power. Therefore: Hull Hits = Material Volume * (Armor level)^(1/3). This makes more realistic hull hit capacities.
