The Stalingrad class of battlecruisers were built shortly before the Third Civil War, and were the last to be built without a Gravity Drive.  By leaving out the gravity drive, these ships are able to pack in a substantial amount of firepower and house six squadrons of starfighters, more than all but the largest dedicated fighter carriers, and at a lower cost than the Revenge class battlecruisers.

The Stalingrad-class is heavily armed.  In addition to the usual mix of Chemlasers and Fusion Cannons, it's also equiped with two heavy Grav Lasers, two heavy Particle Beams, and two dozen Lance Torpedo launch tubes.

Unfortunately, the lessened strategic flexibility and defensive staying power due ot the lack of a gravity drive are a handicap.  As a result of their lower top acceleration (only 30 gees), they are generally relegated to second-tier duties, such as convoy escort or acting as flagships for task forces of ships too small to mount a Gravity Drive anyways.
