The Fenris class Dreadnought is a warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Fenris class Dreadnought is a TL–12 heavily armored, partially streamlined sphere configuration hull. This dreadnought class is equipped for jump 2 range and 5 G acceleration and 2 agility. It carries enough fuel internally for a single jump 2. The WSS Fenris is fitted with a pair of model 6 fib computers adjacent to the bridge.

For defense, there are twenty batteries of triple sand caster batteries, and twenty repulsor bays. There is factor 12 hull armor cladding to defend against critical hits. It is equipped with fuel scoops and fuel purification for gas giant wilderness refueling. It can carry twenty 60 ton Cutters for ship to surface operations. For offense, there are forty batteries of triple beam laser turrets, twenty-two batteries of fusion guns, seventy missile bays and twenty particle accelerator bays. Two fighter squadrons provide combat space patrols, to screen versus enemy fighters and missile strikes. The marine battalion can deploy from meteoric orbital assault and is recovered by the cutters. It has an armored cavalry troop with nine massive 10T Grav APCs.

The 2,800,000 cubic meter hull requires 224 weeks singly and will only take 180 weeks in quantity for construction of future follow on unit orders. This class was commissioned as part of a massive expansion of fleet operational capacity. The new arms race demands worlds procure ships of the line as soon as possible to safeguard their sovereignty. The computer technology limits the vessel's size and the meson spinal mount is considered the most powerful available on the Distant Fringe.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

This is the flagship of the Wolf (world) Navy under the auspices of the Wolf Joint Military Command. The Fenris leads the first battle squadron of the fleet. Hard to hurt, but not particularly hard to hit. It can bulldoze through most enemy lines of battle. The defensive mindset means it carries less fuel and has less range than the more numerous Pador class Dreadnoughts, but a larger marine compliment and more defensive systems. It serves to anchor the defense and deterrence mission of the Wolf System Navy and patrols in the Paradise Subsector. The WSS Fenris carries a massive number of heavy missile bays, and as a result some internal fuel supply was lost, curtailing operational range, without tanker support.
