The class was built with an ornamental wake-cutting hull as well as energy emitters shaped like sails on sea-going ships. In addition to conventional weaponry, the Royal Fortune-class had a Fotia's Fire launcher located amidships.
The entire crew doubled as ground troops whenever a ship participated in a planetary invasion.
The class was a typical vessel in the Tof armada, often used for raids on other ships and planetary troop landings. Its main weakness lay in the energy emitters, as shots targeting the rigging could lead to power surges that often disabled the onboard networks.
