The Iris Class is the newest addition to Legacy files, brought to you by TipTop. Now when i first saw this ship, it reminded me of the Achilles Class, well, the front of it did anyway due to the shape. I myself like this ship and will be using it.
The ship was introduced after the Dominion Wars. The Federation needed a fast light cruiser that could perform diplomatic missions, so the Iris class was then designed. It's main use is for First Contact missions and transportation of VIPs. The Iris is also the fastest ship in the fleet, due to it's sleek design and shape. It can outrun and outmanoeuvre almost every cruiser in the Alpha and Beta Quadrant.
It is equipped with Type XII and Type X phaser arrays. The textures and model are both well done, however, the nacelles are a rather strange shape in my opinion. All in all, this ship is well worth a download. Instructions for installation can be found in the readme and all bugs can be reported on the forum.
Federation Iris class light cruiser Made by Tip Top Textures - Tip Top After the Dominion wars Federation needed a fast modern light cruiser that could perform diplomatic missions. Iris is too small to be an explorer but big enough to perform Firs Contact missions and transport VIPs. Currently Iris is the fastest ship in the fleet. She can outrun and outmanoeuvre almost every cruiser in the Alpha and Beta Quadrant. She is equiped with Type XII and Type X phaser arrays but she has only four standard launchers with 60 torpedos. To install it just unpack it to Your Legacy folder. If You'd like to use some parts from it , or to make a retexture of it just contact me. My E-mail adress - tiptopATpocztaDOTonetDOTeu
