The Asia class Scout is a warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Asia class Scouts serve with the navy of the Daprolix Juncture of Suns, a polity lying to rimward of the Solomani Confederation. They are charged with border patrols and scouting and undertake search and rescue missions. The class are also used as light escorts.

Basic Ship Characteristics[edit]

Following the Imperial Navy and IISS Universal Ship Profile and data, additional information is presented in the format shown here. The small craft factor indicates the number of squadrons (of ten craft) carried on the ship. Tonnage on the universal ship profile is shown in kilotons (thousands of tons) where necessary. [1]

Basic Ship Characteristics [2]
No. Category Remarks
1. Tonnage The Asia class is constructed using a 300 Ton hull built in a Needle configuration. The hull is fully streamlined and has airfoil surfaces, giving good atmospheric performance that is further enhanced by its onboard gravitic systems.
  • The vessel has 2 airlocks. The cargo hold is accessed by a large door.
  • The vessel has a sturdy retractable undercarriage, allowing surface landings.
2. Crew 7 personnel.
  • 2 command, 2 engineering, 2 gunnery, and 1 service.

Accommodations

  • There are 3.5 staterooms. All quarters are double occupancy.

Accessible areas of the hull are fitted with grav plates and inertial compensators and have full life support and environmental systems.

  • There are internal monitoring and security systems throughout the vessel. Individual sections of the hull can be sealed off.
  • There are multiple emergency lockers.
3. Performance The vessel mounts a Jump-2 drive, a Maneuver-4 drive, and a Power Plant-7, giving performance of Jump-2 and 4-G acceleration. The ship has an agility rating of 3 and an emergency agility of 4. The internal fuel tankage is sufficient for two consecutive Jump-2s and gives the power plant 4 weeks duration.
  • The engineering section has a main control room.
  • The jump drive utilizes a lanthanum hull grid.
  • The jump drive is fitted with a jump governor.
4. Electronics Adjacent to the bridge is a Model/5 computer: no backup computer is installed.
  • There are multiple workstations and control points throughout the vessel.
  • The vessel is fitted with communications equipment, a standard sensor array, and has an avionics suite.
    • It is fitted with backup commo and sensor systems.
  • It has a transponder unit that can be deactivated on command.
  • It is equipped with a sophisticated ECM package.
5. Hardpoints x3 hardpoints.
  • The listed battery groupings are standard configurations for the class. Alternative battery groupings may be designated for specific missions.

8. Craft The vessel carries no subcraft.
9. Fuel Treatment The vessel has internal fuel tankage of 141 Tons.
  • The hull is fitted with fuel scoops.
  • The vessel is equipped with a fuel purification plant that can refine all onboard fuel in a few hours: the plant is operated and maintained by the engineering crew.
10. Cost The basic cost of the vessel is MCr335.084
  • Architects Fee: MCr3.351
11. Construction Time 56 weeks (13 months) as standard.
  • Build times can be reduced by mass production and the efficiencies such processes generate, by increased financing, and by allotting additional yard resources and facilities to the construction contract.
12. Comments Standard cargo capacity amounts to 5.0 Tons. The cargo hold can be sealed and has independent life support and environmental systems.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]
