History & Background (Dossier)
Among the Ship Classes of the Royal Caledonian Navy, one of the most important to fleet operations is the "Duke" Class Strategic Tanker (AO-JB) - 542 of these 75,000 ton tankers have one purpose; provide battle squadrons enough fuel to make a big jump. When a large squadron needs to operate away from a base, groups of these enormous tankers relay from bases, gas giants (where AX-H refinery ships will be stationed) or forward supply bases to provide the massive amounts of fuel needed. 4-8 of these vessels contain enough fuel to allow an entire battle squadron to Jump-2 zones. In Service: 542.
