Okay, for MTU, I'm trying to make the Aslan High Guard philosophically different from the humano-centric Republic StarCorps. For one, their troop landers are nearly 200Td spacecraft that piggyback on a 120kTd-or-so Assault Tender.

Another is the Scimitar-class Meson Frigate. Essentially, I took a 1,000-ton meson gun and built a jump-capable support platform around it. I was able to keep the design under 10,000Td, even allowing for some defensive weapons (including a 100-ton particle accelerator bay) and a hanger for the standard 98-ton Aslan shuttle.

"Designed with the philosophy that a smaller vessel with a larger gun could be produced in larger quantities, several Scimitar frigates operate within the battlegroup structure, laying down a withering fire with their 1,000-ton meson spinal mounts in support of their command ships. The Scimitar is most effective against smaller vessels that do not mount the expensive, power-hungry meson screens."
