Bullfrog class Fighter Tender

The Bullfrog class Fighter Tender is a System Defense Carrier that was designed on Inar (Deneb 1213) in 1094.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Bullfrog is meant to carry two squadrons of the locally produced Wart class Heavy Fighters, in addition to four Bubble class Fuel Cutters. Being unstreamlined, it requires the fuel shuttles for normal operations.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The Bullfrog is normally used as a mobile fighter base within a home system. It is more a "fighter tender" than a true carrier. As it normally is part of a system's defense fleet, it only uses its nominal jump ability as a last ditch escape, or for in-system jumps. The shape of the hull and the placement of the fighters allows this ship to operate as a tender while grounded (on an airless moon, for instance), and systems which operate Bullfrogs often construct supply bunkers with this in mind. Like most Inari designs, the Bullfrog is a tail-sitter, with its fighter complement arranged around it like a huge carousel. The listed cost and weight does not include the 24 subcraft.
