Dwarfed only by the Sovetsky Soyuz-class battleships it fought during the Collapse, the George Washington-class battleship formed the core of the late Imperial Navy. The George Washington-class was a behemoth of a ship, with shields heavy enough to withstand a dozen direct hits from torpedoes. The EMSEL cannon on the battleship's nose was a special form of x-ray EMSEL, with each shot powered by a detonated nuclear weapon. However, the ship's coilguns are capable of dealing with most enemies the George Washington faced. Most of these titanic vessels were destroyed during the Collapse, with the few survivors fleeing to the Columbia System and becoming the heart of the fleets of both the United Empire and the new Coalition of Western Republics. The Coalition Navy eventually phased out the George Washington-class, due to its age, and exported the designs to states it supported at the time, such as the United Technocracies.
