The Bengal class Carrier is a combatant warship.
Bengal class Carriers were designed for service with the Bain Defense Squadron, the space force of Bain, a world lying in Spica Sector and a member of both the Boötean Federation and the Solomani Confederation. Though the carriers are tiny by the standards of most Solomani Confederation vessels they are occasionally called upon for Federation and Confederation service. Bengals carry a single bay-mounted Heavy Missile Launcher, which is used primarily to bombard enemy targets. They serve as flagships for Fighter groups, typically carrying two small composite squadrons. The vessel is a TL-10 design.
Basic Ship Characteristics
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.
