Donosev class Survey Scout

The Donosev class Survey Scout uses a 400-ton hull and is used to continually resurvey the interior regions of the Imperium, updating maps and charts and maintaining beacons and markers for navigation hazards.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The survey scout is a typical ship in service with the Imperial Interstellar Scout Service.

The ship has four standby hardpoints; no weapons are normally mounted. As is the case with most modern Scout vessels, the Donosev is not equipped for use in hostile areas. There are four ship's vehicles: one modular cutter with two modules (typically, a survey module and a fuel skimmer module) and three air/rafts. [1]

The Survey Scout is a peaceful vessel, typically unarmed and inoffensive. It does, however, mount four hardpoints and can be armed with a variety of turrets and weaponry if necessary.

Class Naming Conventions[edit]

Class Names: The Donosev class survey scout is named for famous scouts in the Imperial service. [17]

Villemina Donosev held the post of Master Chief Surveyor of the Imperial Grand Survey with the First Survey was published in 420. Her unstinting devotion was instrumental in bringing the hundred-year project to a successful close. When a new class of ship was commissioned for the Second Survey, it was decided to name the class for her. Individual ships are named for famous scouts in the Imperial service.
