Basic Ship Characteristics[edit]

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 subcraft) carried on the ship. Tonnage on the universal ship profile is shown in kilotons (...thousands of tons) where necessary.

Basic Ship Characteristics [2]
No. Category Remarks
1. Tonnage / Hull The Elbing class is constructed using a 200 Ton hull built in a generally Conical configuration. The hull is fully streamlined, giving good atmospheric performance that is further enhanced by its onboard gravitic systems.
  • There are 2 airlocks. The cargo hold is accessed by a door and has a loading ramp.
  • The vessel has a sturdy retractable undercarriage, allowing surface landings.
2. Crew 6 personnel.
  • x1 command/pilot, x3 engineers, x1 medic/science officer, x1 gunner/sensor operator.

Accommodations

  • There are 3 Staterooms. All quarters are double occupancy.

Accessible areas of the hull are fitted with grav plates and inertial compensators and have full life support and environmental systems.

  • There are internal monitoring and security systems throughout the vessel. Individual sections of the hull can be sealed off.
