Designed by the French company Dassault, the Gloire class battlerider, which now equips several battlesquadrons of the navy, takes advantage of the space released by not carrying a jump drive or the fuel required for it. The additional space has allowed the mounting of a spinal weapon in a cruiser class hull. The downside of the arrangement is the requirement for a transport vessel.
