The Deacon-class Destroyer was a universal Destroyer built to fight with numerous Beast ships. It only served in the Somtaaw Navy. The design of the Deacon was based on plans of the various heavy freighters developed during the Cataclysm Era. While the Deacon was still in its early stage of development, Somtaaw designers modified it, replacing loading booms with Ion Cannons, point defense weapons with Mass Drivers turrets, and adding large missile launcher turret on the top of the hull. As a result, this new ship was capable of unleashing devastating firepower onto the battlefield. Mass Drivers with missile launchers were capable of attacking and successfully destroying multiply fighters in a very short time, while Ion Cannons could easily destroy enemy frigates.
