"Most fleet command vessels require these delicate vessels to wait at the back of the Line. Not the Bishamonten. It leads from the front."
―Commodore Liam Renworth

The Bishamonten-class Command Cruiser are massive warships, dedicated to function as both command vessels, and as capital ship hunters, simultaneously having massive firepower, and advance fleet command facilities. Favoured for their speed, power, and unique capabilities, the Bisahamonten-class has become a much loved, but unfortunately rare, UNSC warship.

Bishamonten-class warships are armed with a Super MAC, one of the heaviest weapons possessed by the UNSC. In addition to this, it has dozens of guns, varying from heavy guns, to Laser batteries. It also includes a massive number of Archer missiles, and supporting Widow-class long range missiles, as well as nuclear weapons. This allows it exceptional firepower at long range, and short range.

It's command facilities are uniquely outfitted, with a massive bridge buried deep within the ship. This features a three store command deck, tier and fitted with floor to ceiling holographic systems, allowing them to produce three dimensional images of enemy fleet positions, targets, and so on. These are centre around a CIC, allowing centralised command and control, and with a variety of systems allowing them to direct warships, weapons fire, ground assets and air power.

The Bishamonten is fitted with a large PAVE CORVUS Magnetic Array. This array detects magnetic anomalies caused by ships, through long-range electric and electromagnetic field detection arrays of great sensitivity and uses this to home in on them. The Magnetic Array is incredibly accurate and has a long range of 700,000 kilometres and is highly resistant to jamming methods, detection and interference. On top of that, stealth systems, such as RADAR resistance and optical camouflage, don't effect its capabilities

The Bishamonten is rarely deployed with a battlegroup, instead often being deployed in cruiser squadrons.

Týr-class Large Cruiser

The Mímir-class Escort Destroyer was a subclass of the Bishamonten-class. The class was aesthetically the same as the Bishamonten-class, but had an W/AS M21A 'Tsunami' DIC replacing a Cyclone MAC gun. This subclass was employed extensively during the middle stages of the Necros War.

Kali-class Large Cruiser

The Kali-class Escort Destroyer was a subclass of the Bishamonten-class. The class was aesthetically the same as the Bishamonten-class, but had an W/AS M21C 'Tsunami' DIC replacing its Super MAC gun. This subclass was employed extensively during the latter stages of the Necros War.

Apollo-class Large Cruiser

The Apollo-class Escort Destroyer was a subclass of the Bishamonten-class. The class was aesthetically the same as the Bishamonten-class, but had an W/AS M13 G/GNC replacing its Super MAC gun. This subclass was employed extensively during the latter stages of the Necros War.

UNSC Comments

'Chances are, if this thing goes toe to toe with a super cruiser, its going to blow holes in that mother fucker. Only takes two Es-MAC strikes to take its shielding, then its game over.'

'Its officially supposed to take on enemy heavy capital ships, but hell, this things great for cutting up swathes of smaller warships, especially cruisers.'

'Those Stupid Brutes tried to swarm us with Cruisers to try and destroy the ship. We just out manoeuvred them then pounded them with smack slugs!'
