It has been known for some time that the Penitent Brotherhood's Order Militant has been developing their own ship designs independent of League legacy models or license-built Core Systems or Spartan ships; the growing prevalence of the Swordcane Q-ship and the new Humility-class frigate is proof enough of that. However, the Office of Naval Intelligence had long believed that the Brotherhood had no capacity to construct superheavy merchant vessels or capital ships - a belief shattered by the sudden appearance of a new Order Militant cruiser in early 2499. The VGHS Confessor was imaged in orbit of Sotherlane with an escort of Humility- and Swordcane-class vessels by independent traders, apparently in support of an inquisitorial mission. With support from intelligence source CENSER, ONI now believes that the Confessor is a composite of illegally acquired technologies from across human space - incorporating refined Spartan fusion cannon technology, advanced particle weapons from the Core Systems Vinetti Corporation (in violation of the Agarwal Treaty), overcharged Kanbei engine components and the Brotherhood's own penchant for orbital bombardment using mass drivers. It's possible that the purpose-built Sling bombardment arrays the Brotherhood's Order Militant was once so fond of have been superseded by a decidedly more agile and deadly platform.
