Pod-laying battlecruisers

The Royal Manticoran Navy developed the Agamemnon-class of battlecruiser designed to deploy missile pods, greatly increasing the size of their missile volleys. These ships are often referred to as a "pod-laying battlecruiser," or "battlecruiser (pods)" BC(P) in order to distinguish them from earlier conventional broadside missile armament battlecruisers.
