The States Assault Cruisers was the first operational Troop Missile Cruiser in Starfleet. The States Class succeeded the Kolm-An Class and Continent Class as the Federation's heavy Assault ship designs. These unique vessels have gained the respect and admiration of their crews because of their handling characteristics and offensive capabilities. The overall design came from Terran MACOS Engineering design teams to create a cruiser with photon torpedoes as its main weapons. And the main military troops number to 160. And it is first ship in starfleet to have holodeck for troop. Plus it has the only two transporters that has 80 pods each. One vessel that stands out of all the States Class is the USS Arkansas (NCC-63000). It had more battle's seen in the later 24th Century during the Dominion War.
