Ok, let's have a look at the new ones:

1)KillerBee light fighter. it comes armed with two gattling mass drivers.it won't take a lot of punishment, but is fast and manouverable enough to get where it wants to go

2)Raptor MkVII medium fighter.
unlike most of its predecessors, the mkvii is a medium fighter known for phantastic turn rates. it is armed with two plasma lance cannons and two lasers

Cool, what do you have planned for the heavy fighter? A revamp of the Rapier maybe? I always loved the Rapier beyond all other fighters.

next :

3) Pretorian Heavy Destroyer
the pretorian is a compact shipwith decent speed and a thick hide.
the standard version is armed with a plasma lance turret, 4 mass driver turrets, four laser turrets and two torpedo lanchers.
the Pretorian is 360 meters long

4) the Bengal Mk2
the mk2 is the epitomy of space forces' money saving hybrid program. it follows the idea that if you combine a carrier and a classic warship, you only have to build one ship, instead of two. since the most brutal conflicts space force had to go through in almost a thousand years was hunting rouge durak clans, there was no need for large fleets, but single ships sent to hot spots, which had to be able to cope with any given task.
the bengal mk2 spans 780 meter bow to stern, can carry up to 120 fighters, and is armed with two plasma lance turrets, 9 lasers turrets and 4 torpedo launchers.
the first bengal mark 2, named after the legendary tiger's claw, is currently in testing phase

5) Elephant Cargo and Troop Transport
200 meters in length, the elephant can transport about 1600 personel with power armor and heavy weapons stowed in it two massive cargo bays. the more or less aerodynamic form enables it to perform planetary landing manouvers, delivering soldiers and weapons directly to the front lines. the elephant class has been in service of the space force and the marine division before the reformation for almost 400 years. drayman enterprises does not have the abilities to build any other ships any more, but though the "elly" lacks any offensive weapons, it is easily the best transport the amred forces have ever had

6,7)unknown.
vague pictures restored from memory devices of destroyed civilian ships.
various sources have indicated strong resemblance of these ships with kilrathi vessels, but official from both the confederation space force and the confederation intelligence service have srictly denied that possiblity.

"come on, people, this pictures were taken in the andromedar galaxy! the chances of those ships being of kilrathi origin are about as large as elvis jackson and michael presley flying them. the kilrathi exiles are gone. i know that doesn't make for a good story, but the truth usually doesn't"

8) Deliverance Class Battleship
the deliverance is the most powerfull ship available to the confederation space force. just below 900 meters in length, it boasts 5 plasma lance turrets, 4 mass driver turrets,4 torpedo launchers and 12 laser turrets as well as multiple point defense installations. it can carry up to 70 strike craft, comprised of fighters, bombers and marine assault craft.
forces hostile to the confederation, such as pirates, rouge durak clans or corporation who try to enforce illegal business in border systems have come to call these mammoth ships floating fortresses because they have single handedly taken out large space installation and garrison fleets. the only downturn of the deliverance is its lack of speed. unlike the missouri or pretorian, fast, small ship can easy outrun this lumbering behemoth. you should make sure, though, that you can also outrun the fighters and bombers...

btw, the watchful of you may know this ship as a model of the concordia carrier which was later discarded

thank you. here's another one:

9) the sagitarius heavy fighter.
also called "stubby" for its compact appearance, the sagitarius isn't exactly very powerful in terms of firepower, but it is well armored and shielded, and the four large engines will give it unusual speed for its class
