Starships are designed with the Classic Traveller format, using High Guard Shipyard v1.13 written by Andrea Vallance.

The Caliphate class Scout is a recon starship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

It is a vessel with 3-G and J-1 performance. The partially streamlined spherical configuration is armored and is capable of gas giant refueling. The hull is a strange combination of Lead, Iron, and Cobalt and it is fitted with fuel scoops and a purification refinery. They are a spherical hulled vessel for short-range patrols in the Caliphate. These starships have enough fuel for two jumps without refueling. They are equipped with an auxiliary control with a back up Model/4 fib ship computer, in case the main bridge is destroyed. Scorned as poorly armed by some safety conscious scouts, they are nonetheless sturdy workhorses of the Caliphate fleet.

  • They are armed with four single pulse laser turrets.
  • They carry a streamlined 20 ton launch.
  • There is a crew of eight, which include: pilot, navigator, 3 engineers, gunner, medic and flight crew.
