This is my alternate version of the Targeter-Class Stand-Off Attack Cruiser, based on the hull of a Strike Cruiser instead of the Interdictor. While the Targeter would be a good representation of a proof-of-concept design, the Marksman is more along the lines of an actual production model, as its better-rounded armament gives it the ability to defend itself against a broad spectrum of threats, as opposed to the Targeter's primarily anti-starfighter armament.

Based on a heavily modified Strike Cruiser hull, the Marksman-Class Stand-Off Attack Cruiser is essentially a sniper in space. Equipped with an axial mounted tachyon lance, the ship far outranges any other known type of energy weapon system. Combined with long range scanners and targeting arrays, the Marksman is designed to inflict devastating attacks from outside of a target's sensor range. In addition, the Marksman is equipped with dual-mode shields which can be used to protect the ship from enemy sensors. Due to the power constraints of the lance, the Marksman only has enough energy for a few shots. As such, it will make a quick attack with a handful of shots, then use its stealth to shift position to evade counter attack. Once in its new position, the Marksman will sit quietly and recharge the tachyon lance, then repeat the fire-and-evade sequence as needed. In order to accommodate the lance projector and its associated power equipment, the Marksman loses almost all of its troop transport and starfighter capacity, as well as a large portion of its cargo capacity. The modular interior of the Strike is deleted as well, and some Hull protection has been sacrificed as a compromise to fit in the lance and its systems, but the ship's shields have been upgraded in compensation.

This thing is a beast! The stealth shields are similar to a system I came up with for a special missions fighter. It's almost overpowered but the sacrificed interior makes sense. Too bad the Imps didn't have a few of these at Endor.

Yeah, it's pretty formidable, but its relative lack of anti-starfighter defenses might allow a group of PCs to take it on as part of an adventure...
