NOTES:
One of the newer heavy cruisers in Starfleet, the Ambassador Hardin Class is designed to provide close fire support for major task groups, especially when Federation vessels are outnumbered. Armed with heavy long-range phasers and a large complement of photon torpedoes, ships of this class are formidable foes that can engage the enemy at long range. They are also able to inflict moderate damage and lend direct fire support from virtually any tactical position within a flotilla or attack group. The Ambassador Hardin Class also supports a full complement of marines trained in zero-gravity combat and boarding maneuvers, which further enhances its worth as a combat vessel. The Ambassador Hardin Class is distinctive in appearance as well. The Ambassador Hardin has PB-72 drive nacelles to port and starboard attached to the rear of the vessel. Argelius Shipyards produced three Ambassadors per year. Ships of this class are named for individuals who have made significant contributions to the Federation in recent years.
