The Miocene Arrow was an Alps-class Super-Heavy Assault Carrier in service in the Cosmonautic Armada of Vostok. One of the largest, most advanced and most expensive ships in the CAV Arsenal, it was capable of taking down entire enemy fleets with the help of hundreds of fighters stationed in its hangars. The "Orban" siege cannons mounted on its deck and under its hull were very energy-intensive, though when they fired they were capable of wiping out entire cities, and then some.

Despite fierce resistance by its crew and its complement of fighters, the Miocene Arrow was destroyed during a Clone Guild ambush en route to planet Earth in 2011.[1]

Trivia

The ship is named after a sci-fi novel by Sean McMullen.
