Yet another unrendered/textured starship.
The Tempest-Class is typical of UEF battleship design: big, slow, and brutish. Bearing massive cannons and a slew of torpedo tubes, a Tempest can reduce pretty much anything to slag in a matter of minutes and its armor can take a tremendous beating before cracking. However, like most UEF ships, it is designed exclusively for operation with a fleet or taskforce, and as such has very few anti-fighter weapon emplacements, relying almost exclusively on support ships for light defense.
