By Y175, the Kzintis faced the same problem as all of the other fleets – a lack of true heavy cruisers. The pre-war battlecruisers had suffered steady losses and the production rate of these heavier ships could not keep pace. Ultimately, the Kzintis turned to adding a large section to the back (or top) of their medium cruiser, adding a fourth engine and thousands of tons of additional weapons and equipment. Produced more quickly than the battlecruiser class (which remained in production), the new heavy cruiser kept the fleet up to strength as the General War dragged on.
