History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Shipwrights and local naval architects were trying to make the best of the local TL–7 resources. The design owes its fire power to three imported beam lasers, which were initially imported and then eventually license built under a lucrative trade contract between Kingdom of Peladon and a powerful weapons manufacturer. The Talbot/Bremen Mark 3 triple beam laser arrays are the products of a wholly owned megacorporation, subsidiary. The Able class War Rocket was designed for service with the Royal Peladon Navy, the RPN, the space arm of the military forces of the Kingdom of Peladon.
