Overview:

Noticing the growing unrest within the Inner Sphere in the first half of the 28th Century, the Federated Suns decided to upgrade their orbital defenses of key worlds.   Toward this end, Boeing Interstellar's assets in the Federated Suns (the future Federated-Boeing) were commissioned to develop a new defensive battle satellite, and in 2760 the first Navarone-class fortress was deployed around Galax.  

Capabilities:

Intended to be used in multiples around other satellites or a planet, the Navarones sacrifice any capital-scale weaponry on their aft arc in order to house a dropship docking point.   In the other directions, single or paired NAC-20s put any approaching dropship at considerable risk of its existence; the twin NAC-20s of the primary firing arc are able to obliterate most dropships in a single hit, and cripple many a WarShip with only a handful of shots.   Relatively strong secondary batteries of LRMs, PPCs or Large Lasers and point-defense lasers and machine guns can be found in all weapons arcs.

A full dozen fighter bays are mounted on the aft arc, to allow the squadrons to be deployed or recovered out of direct enemy weapons fire.   Six small craft can also be stored there, either to add heavier firing platforms to the AeroFighter group, or to deploy Battle Taxis for boarding and capturing of enemy vessels with the reinforced battalion of jump infantry or marines the station can support.   A dropship docking port is included; this was originally intended to be an Avenger or other combat dropship, but as the Succession Wars progressed, such units were often removed and added to offensive units, leaving most Navarone's without a permamently based support dropship.

Everything still comes at a price; the Navarone has sufficient heat sinks to fire either all three forward arcs, or all four side ones; it cannot fire all weapons simultaneously.

Battle History:

No complete network of Navarones has been attacked in the Succession Wars; the one around Robinson was not complete when the Draconis Combine assaulted the world in 2787, and the network around Kestrel was compromised when DCMS special operations forces infiltrated and destroyed several nodes in that planet's Necklace.   The defenses of New Avalon were not tested due to the AFFS's revitalization following the massacre at Kentares IV in 2796.   Several other partially-complete constellations were destroyed in the initial Combine drive through the Draconis and Crucis marches, with individual Navarones giving a good accounting of themselves, but ultimately falling as DCMS units concentrated on individual fortresses, which due to the incomplete nature of the Necklaces, were unable to support each other as intended.

Deployment

The Navarone was not designed to operate alone; rather, it was thought that a network of Navarones would be deployed around important worlds or regions of space within a solar system, and that each Navarone would be able to support other Navarone with interlocking fields of fire.   Such constellations were often referred to as a "Necklace of Artemis."

Unfortunately for House Davion, the Star League collapsed and the Succession Wars began before more than a handful of Necklaces could be finished.   The one around the Galax Multiplex is the most extensive and best-maintained, in keeping with that facility's importance to the Armed Forces of the Federated Suns.   The Necklace surrounding New Avalon would eventually be cannibalized in order to maintain the machines around Galax.

Fluff note: During the Star League the Galax Complex was still considered a "Terran" company, not truly a FedSuns company until after the Fall. The entente that existed between the two nations prior to the Coup facilitated the site's construction. A potential fluff route would be to work the SDS angle. Since relations between the two nations were good, but the Hegemony was unwilling to part with the SDS just yet, this station and maybe a few other bits were a consolation prize. Not exactly high tech, but appreciated. My pence.
cheers

Good fluff, and solid design. I like them, but agree that they do not seem to fit into the AFFS style of things.

The main thing I wonder about with this is if it is really something the Federated Suns would build. Granted you got the weapons spot on, but the Fed Suns always seemed to be more about ground forces than naval, even defensively.

That said this is cheap enough and powerful enough it could get the job done and would be possible to deploy on many key systems. Certainly in the Federated Suns ability to do if they had the inkling.
