A space-to-surface shuttle carrying assault forces descends from the FDF Cerberus to the surface of a planet
Flagship of the Federation Defense Force Fleet during the later First Federation period.
One of the first conversion drive carriers possessed by the Federation, the Cerberus was deployed on several occasions to deter piracy or to quell unruly colonies. It had the capability of launching a number of Starfighter exoatmospheric fighters against spaceborne targets and space-to-surface shuttles for landing assault forces against ground-based adversaries.
Although the original was broken up for scrap during the early Solsys Organization period, an exact nano-replica of the Cerberus can presently be seen in the Ceres Historical Spacetime Museum.
