                Ok I designed a race called the draconian confederacy and created some of their ships and tactics.

                The Draconian Confederacy
                Spoiler:

                The Draconian Confederacy is a relatively new power to the galaxy. They are an alliance of pirates, thieves, mercenaries, and other groups and consist of a variety of races from human to Jaffa. But unlike the Lucian Alliance, they are a formal government. They have a high council and have firm trade agreements with both the free Jaffa and the Tau’ri. They were created during the reign of the Gou’ald. At that time they were known as the outer rim alliance and contained primarily refugees fleeing Gou’ald oppression. Their fleet contained only a hand full of ships, many of which were noting more than armed cargo ships. Their ability to expand was hampered by the Gou’ald and their superior firepower. Most of the Draconian fleet was on defensive action through out the reign of the Gou’ald.

                When the Gou’ald Empire collapsed, they were part of a very short list of galactic powers that had the potential to take charge, but they were again stifled by another power. This time it was the Lucian Alliance that crushed their expansionistic dreams. With the Alliance’s larger fleet, they managed to prevent the expansion of the Outer Rim Alliance for several years. However, the Confederacy as it would later be know as was on the road to becoming a force to be reckoned with.

                In 2022 a war broke out between he Confederacy and the Lucian Alliance. The Alliance seeking to crush a rival and conquer fresh territory thought they would be up against an easy opponent. They were sadly mistaken. Their opening campaign was met with light resistance, but soon after taking 4 systems, they were ambushed by the bulk of the Outer Rim Fleet. Consisting of a hodgepodge of armed cargo ships, modified Al’kesh and a few Ha’taks, the Outer Rim Alliance crushed the Lucian Alliance fleet without mercy. What started out as a lightning campaign, turned into a humiliating defeat for the Alliance. As a result the Alliance was forced to concede several dozen systems and pay huge reparations to the Confederacy. What was later called the One Month War, caused several major events in Confederacy history. Two months after the war ended, the seven main factions of the Outer Rim Alliance gathered together in a system called Dracona. There they signed the Confederation Alliance Treaty. This was the formal founding of the Draconian Confederacy on August 22, 2022 earth calendar.

                It was not long before the Lucian Alliance was back for revenge. One year after their defeat in the One Month War, they returned with an even larger force and a thirst for revenge. The Draconians, who were clearly outmatched, began to develop several new tactics that would later prove to be their standard attack plans. The first was the hit and run raid. Because of the size of their fleet, the Draconians were unable to fight the Alliance on even terms. By using this tactic, they managed to destroy hundreds of Alliance ships and lose almost none of their own. Attacks on alliance shipping and alliance production centers took their toll on the Alliance fleet. Their superior cloaking technology also aided this tactic. Because Confederate ships were small in both size and number, the ability to run and hide was a must. Using captured Gou’ald technology, Confederate scientists managed to perfect the technology to a point in which Draconian Cloaking technology was superior to any other race. The cloaking field could be raised and lowered so quickly that it gave the appearance of firing while cloaked. This was due to the fact that the integration between the cloak and shield generators was so close that now even fighter can activate a cloaking field. The second and more sinister tactic was that of the boarding and the capture of enemy ships. Because the Confederate fleet was so small, the capture of ships was preferred to their destruction. While the original tactic consisted of using transporter rings and attacks on the hanger bays, it was a pirate named Argus Noble who pioneered the modern day tactic.

                All Confederate medium and capital ships are armed with a weapon known as the boarding tube. This weapon is a projectile with a shield-penetrating tip that burrows through the hull of a ship. Inside the main body of this weapon is a four-man boarding commando team. This team working in consort with several others captures the bridge, engine room, and computer core. Once these centers have been captured, the shields are dropped and Confederate Marines are sent in via the hanger bay. These Marines then proceed to mop up any resistance and then bring the ship back to a Confederate shipyard where it undergoes repairs and modifications.

                The greatest success of this tactic was at the Battle of the Taurus Belt. A large Lucian Alliance battle group consisting of half a dozen Ha’taks and almost twice as many Al’kesh were successfully ambushed by a Draconian battle Group. Five Ha’taks and seven Al’kesh were captured. This was considered by scholars to be the most successful uses of the boarding tactic and is taught in all Draconian Military academies today.

                Now after the Tau’ri-Aschen War, the Confederacy is one of the Galaxies rising powers. With nearly two-dozen systems under their control and a moderately sized fleet, their empire is poised to become a galactic power.


                draconian boarding tactics
                Spoiler:
                The Draconian confederacy utilizes a unique style of boarding in order to take over a ship. As stated before, all ships are equipped with boarding tubes. These are long tubes with a shield penetrating drill bit head and a single ion engine in the back. They are launched a ships from a special rail system mounted on their home ship. This tube then punches a hole in the hull and opens. Inside there is a four man boarding commando squad. This is a volunteer based system in which these commandos attack and capture key areas in the ship. This is however a hazardous job. The average life expectancy on a commando team is three missions. For some members it’s as low as one. The tube itself serves not only as a means of entry, but as a means of escape. If the team cannot escape the ship, they can climb back into the tube, and use a ring transporter inside to escape back to a friendly ship. This transporter can also be used to ring in reinforcements if necessary. If the tube is abandoned, it can be set to detonate and can due considerable damage to a ship.

                The commando squad is made up of four specialists. The first man down is the drop man. He has the most dangerous job out of all of the team. Because the tubes are exposed at the base, the first man down is often the first killed. As such it is usually the smallest and the fastest. They are usually armed with two custom made submachine guns one in each hand. They however are given the freedom to customize all of their weapons and gear. When they drop, it is their job to lay suppressive fire on both sides of the hallway. They wear specially configured goggles that show the images of cameras located at the barrels of their weapons. This allows them to see in two directions and aim as well. This is a unique skill that each drop man is required to learn.

                The second man down is the demolitions expert. When he drops, he faces to the right of the drop man and the drop man swings both his guns to his left. The demolitions expert is usually armed with a shotgun or a rifle, but again they are allowed to customize. His job is to begin to pacify all resistance on one side.

                The third man down is the heavy weapons specialist. Armed with a heavy weapon, usually a machine gun, his job is to eliminate all of the enemies on one side of the hall. He usually focuses his attention on the largest group of enemies.

                The last man down is the team leader. His job is to support the side opposite that of the heavy weapons specialist. Usually armed with a carbine, he leads his team in this suicide mission.

                The teams themselves are required to learn a variety of skills. Each team member has their base skills and is required to also have a proficiency in one of the following, hacking, demolitions, sniping, heavy weapons, medical care, ship to ship combat, atmospheric reentry, and engineering. All commandos are required to have a basic knowledge of all of these skills.

                Once the teams have pacified their immediate area, they move on to their objective. They usually work with two to three teams to capture the major areas of the ship. These include the bridge, the engine room, and the computer core. At each of these areas, they are to take control of it and use it to disable the ship. Once the ship is disabled, it will either be towed to a shipyard to be repaired, or reactivated and its guns used on the enemy.

                Through the use of this tactic, the Draconian Confederacy has managed to add many ships to their fleet.

                  Rings
                  Subspace communication
                  cloaking device

                  History:
                  Possibly one of the firsts ships to be designed by Draconian ship designers. The original gunships were nothing more than modified cargo haulers or tel'tac cargo ships fitted with guns and cloaks. It was after the success of the one month war and the second Lucian alliance war that the Draconian high council decided to create a standard gunship for the Draconian Navy.

                  The high council set a list of standards. This ship must be capable of mass production in the naval yards. Must have cloaking capacity. Must be able to withstand both atmospheric and space flight and combat. Hyperspace capability is not required, but a limited range drive would be preferable. Must have a small crew and crew must be easily trained.

                  Designed by Navel R&D in 2026, the shadow class was actually on the bottom of the trials list. In basic performance tests, it finished last out of 40 test ships. After the initial trials, all ships were allowed one month for redesign. Naval R&D then gave up the project to United Development. United was a new ship designing firm that had started only recently. This was its first military trial. After redesigning the ship from the ground up, the new test ship was flown to the Naval proving ground on Tarox 3. There it finished in the top 10. From this it began to under go other trials and managed to be one of the last two competitors. Its Rival was the Triton-Terra-Solaris an old company who had designed most of the equipment used in the Draconian navy. They had created a high-speed attack ship designed for commerce raiding. United however had a slower more rugged gun platform designed to hold its own in a dogfight. United ship was also more of a universal platform. It could be modified to carry a large contingent of troops for boarding actions or for transport. After a long evaluation period the Shadow was chosen as the Navy's new gunship replacing the armed cargo haulers of its day.

                  While the modified fleet still exists, known as the misfits, the Shadow class has now been deployed to front line service for both escort and raiding duties. Its unique design allows it to be hung on external racks of capital ships or docked to a gunship hauler for hyperspace capability. This versatility allows this vessel to serve anytime anywhere and to do anything.
