The KATANA-class is a long-range patrol variant of the MONTU. While maintaining the same overall dimensions, 
the class is distinguishable by altered weapon mounts and differences in the lower primary hull. These 
alterations increase the volume of the saucer so as to allow for the inclusion of larger shuttle bays. These 
bays are designed to hold combat shuttles and support craft which greatly increase the ability of a single 
KATANA to thoroughly scout a star system. This is invaluable in independent patrols, particularly in the 
anti-piracy role for which the ship was designed. While combat shuttles are of very limited use against 
proper warships, most pirate vessels are equipped with older systems and lack the redundancy and 
compartmentalization which make true military starships difficult to kill. Because piracy primarily exists 
in relatively sparsely populated sectors and border areas where an increased military presense is either not 
economically or politically feasible, increasing the effectiveness of a single small units was of paramount 
importance in the design.

Instead of a single shuttle bay on the dorsal aft of the saucer, as a standard MONTU or AKIRA, the KATANA 
features three bays. The class keeps the original bay, but adds two bays to the expanded ventral saucer. The 
fighter bay is in the aft of the lower portion of the primary hull. The third bay carries two E-12 tactical 
warning and control runabouts for use with the combat shuttles and a single warp-capable scout ship to 
extend the long range scouting abilities of the mother ship.

The KATANA-class also features improved remote systems which allow for the ship to be manned by a smaller 
crew than a conventional cruiser. This frees necessary space for combat shuttle pilots and maintenance 
personnel and actually results in a slightly reduced overall crew as compared to a conventional MONTU.

The original MONTU-class cruiser is a descendent of the successful AKIRA-class warships that entered service 
early in the 2330's. The revolutionary catamaran configuration of the AKIRA's had proven itself as an 
efficient and robust design through diverse tactical engagements. 

The KATANA incorporates the same SCIMITAR tactical sensor suite as a standard MONTU.

Application of ablative armor to critical areas of the structure, as deemed necessary from the AKIRA's, has 
also provided a much needed defensive boost to the refit design. Likewise the incorporation of a point 
defense system adds to defense by providing an additional defence against missile and projectile attacks.
The mark II model of the KATANA has been modified to handle the latest advanced combat shuttles which 
possess gravitic rather than conventional impulse drives. These craft were first deployed on the 
KRONSHTADT-class advanced escort carriers.

Because of the new drive system, the shuttles must be pushed clear of the hull before bringing their own 
drives to full power. This creates a vulnearability when they are deployed from a conventional carrier. As
such, the mark II KATANA has been outfitted with laterally-mounted linear accelerators which serve as launch 
tubes. These literally fire the shuttles out of the side of the ship. Since the shuttle's own drive is on
standby, they have limited intertial compensation during this phase so accelerations are limited, but it 
does push them well clear of the hull more efficiently than using tractor beams. Should the tubes be 
damaged, it is possible to deploy the shuttles through the aft recovery doors by using tractor beams. 
However, this operation is much slower.

F-39 Shikra Combat Shuttle:  The production version of the limited production prototype Spectre is the 
replacement for the Phantom fighter. The Shikra has a higher cruise and maximum flight speed and is better 
armed. The new sublight drive system gives the fighter 250% of the acceleration
of older F-4.
