 Originally arriving from Sol System as colonial transports, and upgraded with armor, weapons, sensors, and engines to deal with the threat of piracy on behalf of a newly-chartered Coalition, the decades-old but reliable //Shogun// is the workhorse of the Coalition fleet. ​ Her modular design allows for simplified upgrades as technology advances, and also allows her to carry a mix of weaponry and mission-specific pallets (enhanced sensors, extra fuel, or cargo, etc...) wherever she needs to go.  Swift, well-armed, and durable, the //Shogun// is capable of carrying up to three smallships, typically transatmospheric shuttles or modular cutters, as well as servicing and rearming escorts such as the newer //​Pandion-class//​ starfighter.\\ Originally arriving from Sol System as colonial transports, and upgraded with armor, weapons, sensors, and engines to deal with the threat of piracy on behalf of a newly-chartered Coalition, the decades-old but reliable //Shogun// is the workhorse of the Coalition fleet. ​ Her modular design allows for simplified upgrades as technology advances, and also allows her to carry a mix of weaponry and mission-specific pallets (enhanced sensors, extra fuel, or cargo, etc...) wherever she needs to go.  Swift, well-armed, and durable, the //Shogun// is capable of carrying up to three smallships, typically transatmospheric shuttles or modular cutters, as well as servicing and rearming escorts such as the newer //​Pandion-class//​ starfighter.\\

 The example pictured in the sketch below illustrates an earlier weapons configuration of four now-obsolete Coherent Systems Ltd medium laser turrets, as well as missile hardpoints and point-defense weapons, and a proposed (but never constructed) alternate turret setup consisting of four coilguns. ​ A more modern configuration replaces the four medium turrets with two large turrets containing heavy lasers.\\ The example pictured in the sketch below illustrates an earlier weapons configuration of four now-obsolete Coherent Systems Ltd medium laser turrets, as well as missile hardpoints and point-defense weapons, and a proposed (but never constructed) alternate turret setup consisting of four coilguns. ​ A more modern configuration replaces the four medium turrets with two large turrets containing heavy lasers.\\
