While the Space Corps have a variety of ships both interstellar and atmospheric, it has very little support when it comes to water. The Egir was constructed as heavy command and support for aerial R-craft for local missions since the other interstellar battleships, such as the UFCS-05 Jormungandr, and UFHC-007 Vanargand, were likely in space. Having a command craft that can operate easily on water allows for better coordination of underwater missions. The Egir also packs a serious punch; though it only has two types of missiles, they can cover a wide range and are very effective. The craft is heavily specialized, and relies on support for it's own survival, since it has virtually no ability to flee from close-range attackers.
The Egir can only be deployed in areas that have a waterline, and it can only be deployed on the surface.
