The Bremen class Caravel is a mercantile starship.
The Bremen class Caravel originates within the Plavian League. It is a general-purpose design intended to carry both passengers and freight, with roomy holds that are capacious enough to carry both bulk loads and high volume items. The fuel scoops and fuel purification plant allow wilderness refueling, further extending the potential profit margin. These hardworking vessels are a familiar sight working their way along the backwater routes throughout the region. They are popular with their crews.
- 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. 
|1.||Tonnage|| The Bremen class is constructed using a 600 Ton hull built in a generally Conical configuration. The hull is fully streamlined and has airfoil surfaces, giving good atmospheric performance that is further enhanced by its onboard gravitic systems.
|2.||Crew|| x10 personnel (2 officers, 8 enlisted).
|3.||Performance|| The vessel mounts a Jump-1 drive, a Maneuver-1 drive, and a Power Plant-1, giving performance of Jump-1 and 1-G acceleration. The ship has an agility rating of 0 and an emergency agility of 1. The internal fuel tankage is sufficient for two consecutive Jump-1s and gives the power plant 4 weeks duration.
|4.||Electronics|| Adjacent to the bridge is a Model/1 computer: no backup computer is installed.
|5.||Hardpoints|| x6 hardpoints.
|6.||Armament||The normal weapons fit-out for a Bremen class is:|
|7.||Defenses||The hull is unarmored.|
|9.||Fuel Treatment||The vessel has internal fuel tankage of 126 Tons.|

History & Background (Dossier)
Although ships of the Bremen class can't compete with more specialized vessels, they are well suited to their intended niche. The streamlined hull allows landings directly at dirtside starports. Their large fuel tankage and onboard fuel purification allows the crews a profitable sideline supplying refined fuel to poorly serviced or backwater facilities.
