The pride of the Taurian Fleet, the Winchester class represented everything right and good about the Concordat. Independence, determination, and willingness to chart ones own destiny. Below are listed the Block II and Block III upgrades to the venerable design.

==Overview:==
First produced in 2364, the Winchester class Cruiser was for nearly two
centuries the pride of the Fleet.  However, in 2480, the Concordat observed
that their heaviest ship had become hopelessly obsolete.  Learning from the
mistakes they made with the Winchester, they launched an extensive refit
program that basically rebuilt the twelve ships in service.

The result of that refit was the Winchester II.  Introduced in 2486, TCS
Winchester once again appeared as a state of the art design, despite the two
century old chassis.  Simply by updating the systems and components to more
modern version, a vast amount of mass was saved--all of which was devoted to
additional weapons and armor.

These twelve updated ships remained the mightiest ships of the Taurian Fleet
until the launch of the Samantha Calderon class Battleships and the Broadsword
class Cruisers during the Reunfication War.

==Capabilities:==
Massing 740,000 tons, the Winchester II still remained capable of safely
thrusting at 1.5-g's of acceleration, with an emergency rating of 2.5-g's. 
The armor protection was nearly doubled over the original design, with 1,109
tons of standard armor.  Due to changes in aerospace units during the
intervening years, the fighter and small craft bays were completely
reconfigured--giving the Winchester II two Air Divisions (16 aerospace
fighters) and four small craft.  In addition, 150 Marines were provided for
ship security and to conduct boarding actions.

Designed from the first as Flagships, each of the Winchester II class included
a Flag Bridge with a complement of twenty-nine officers and crew.  An
additional 30 passengers or additional crew could also be carried aboard ship,
to supplement the three hundred and one officers and crewmen.

Fuel tankage, food, water, and life support allowed the Winchester II a
deployment of up to one year in length.  Each ship carried 18,500 tons of
dedicated spare parts storage, with an additional 24,000 tons of free cargo
volume.

Armament was given a high priority with the Winchester II.  Sixteen Jankowski
Mark II Class 30 Naval Autocannon mounted two per arc with a 100-round
magazine provided the main punch of the ship.  Another sixteen High Energy
Systems Nova class Heavy Naval PPCs increased the NAC's firepower by 50% and
extended the Winchester IIs reach to 900 kilometers.

Twenty-four Norman/Raytheon capital missile launchers (8 each of Barracuda
class, White Shark class, and Killer Whale class) mounted three per arc
provided anti-fighter defensive firepower.  Each missile launcher included a
dedicated 30-missile magazine, with a seperate 5-missile magazine for the
Killer Whale launcher holding nuclear tipped missiles.

==Variants:==
The original Winchester I is detailed in other TROs so space will not be
wasted repeating the details here.  The Winchester III was introduced in 2569.
 This variant involved upgrading the armor to Improved Ferro-Aluminum--a
change that increased armor protection by nearly 45%.  Seven ships had been so
refitted by the time of the Battle of Robsart.

==Notable Vessels & Crews:==
Below are listed all known vessels of the Winchester class.

Winchester (SCA-001)
Remington (SCA-002)
Mauser (SCA-003)
Enfield (SCA-004)
Springfield (SCA-005)
Sharps (SCA-006)
Spencer (SCA-007)
Henry (SCA-008)
Kalisnikov (SCA-009)
Barrett (SCA-010)
Steyr (SCA-011)
Thompson (SCA-012)

==Deployment==
Until the advent of the Calderon and Broadsword class, the Winchester I and
Winchester II were the heaviest ships in the Fleet.  They served as Flagships
for remote naval stations, Task Forces, and showed the Flag on all Taurian
borders.

Four Winchester IIs remained stationed at Gateway Point with Home Fleet, while
the remaining eight were divided among the other Fleet stations and bases. 
When the Reunification War burst upon the scene, the Winchester IIs took the
brunt of the first few years.  With the loss of TCS Mauser at the Tentavia
ambush, many thought the design was too outdated to serve.  Case Amber proved
the critics wrong, as eight Winchester IIs led the Fleet to victory against
the Davion forces.

These ships formed the backbone of the Fleet until the Battle of Robsart.  At
Robsart all 11 remaining Winchester IIs were involved.  By the time this
battle ended, the Winchester class no longer existed.  Robsart was a fight
that no one won.

Despite its career ending at Robsart, the Winchester class went down in
history as the vessel that made the Concordat.  To this day, it is a valued
and respected part of the Taurian heritage.
