The Cataphract class escort cruiser is a Bug escort cruiser that has 50 percent more point defense than a Dunedin class CLE and three times more than a Belleisle-B class Battleship. The ship is much more austere compared to TFN ships. This explained the heavy point defense. Another thing that explains it is the lack of any offensive weaponry. This ship came as a surprise during the First battle of Justin. Admiral Murakuma had not seen the Cataphract before, so she sent her fighters straight into them. Her fighter strength was decisively blunted, so she couldn't hold the system.
