USS Rakshasa - Demon in Hindu mythology.
USS Ravana - Primary antagonist in the Hindu epic, Ramayana, also called the king of the Rakshasas.
The original idea came from Freespace 2 in which the SC Rakshasa and the SD Ravana(my avatar) are classes of ships used by the Shivans.

USS Surya - Chief solar deity in Hinduism.
USS Asura - Original idea came from the apparent mistranslation of the name of the ship in Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha. It's however also a group of power-seeking deities in Hinduism. So it fits with the rest of the names.
