The Marathon-class heavy cruiser is a cruiser classification used by the Allied Navy.[2] The class was meant to be a replacement for the aging Halcyon-class light cruisers. Their numbers are limited and they are usually commanded by the highest-ranking officers. At 1192 meters long, Marathon-class heavy cruisers are approximately three times the length of a frigate. They are equipped with thick layers of Titanium-A armor, and are able to sustain far greater damage than any frigate or destroyer
