The Grisha class Corvette is a warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Grisha Class Corvettes serve with the navy of the Kostov Confederate Republic, a member state of the Solomani Confederation. The class are streamlined, unlike their larger comrades, the Leningrad class Destroyer and Krivak class Frigate. Although the design lacks screens, it is slightly more agile and carries a useful Ship's Boat.

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 craft) carried on the ship. Tonnage on the universal ship profile is shown in kilotons (thousands of tons) where necessary. [1]

Basic Ship Characteristics [2]
No. Category Remarks
1. Tonnage The Grisha class is constructed using a 1,200 Ton hull built in a Wedge configuration. The hull is fully streamlined, giving good atmospheric performance that is further enhanced by its onboard gravitic systems.
  • There are 4 airlocks located around the vessel. The cargo hold is accessed by large doors and has a loading ramp.
  • The vessel has sturdy retractable legs, allowing surface landings.
2. Crew x29 personnel.
  • x11 command, x5 engineering, x4 gunnery, and x2 service. There are x4 Marines and x3 flight crew.

Accommodations

  • There are 17.5 staterooms. Senior staff have individual cabins: all other 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.
  • There are multiple emergency lockers.
3. Performance The vessel mounts a Jump-3 drive, a Maneuver-6 drive, and a Power Plant-6, giving performance of Jump-3 and 6-G acceleration. The ship has an agility rating of 5 and an emergency agility of 6. The internal fuel tankage is sufficient for one Jump-3 and gives the power plant 4 weeks duration.
  • The engineering section has a main control room.
    • Ladders, gantries and platforms give access to the machinery.
  • The jump drive utilizes a hull grid.
  • The jump drive is fitted with a jump governor.
4. Electronics Adjacent to the bridge is a Model/6fib computer: no backup computer is installed.
  • There are multiple workstations and control points throughout the vessel.
  • The vessel is fitted with communications equipment, a standard sensor array, and has an avionics suite.
  • It has a transponder unit that can be deactivated on command.
  • It is equipped with a sophisticated ECM package.
5. Hardpoints 12 hardpoints.
  • The listed battery groupings are standard configurations for the class. Alternative battery groupings may be designated for specific missions.
6. Armament The normal weapons fit-out for a Grisha class is:
7. Defenses The hull is plated, structurally reinforced, and built with secure bulkheads and compartments that give it a High Guard armor rating of 4.
  • The vessel is not fitted with screens or other passive defensive systems.
8. Craft Flight Section

The Ship's Boat is housed in a dedicated hanger: the hanger is a sealable compartment with a volume of 39 Tons.

9. Fuel Treatment The vessel has internal fuel tankage of 432 Tons.
  • The hull is fitted with fuel scoops.
  • The vessel is equipped with a fuel purification plant that can refine all onboard fuel in a few hours: the plant is operated and maintained by the engineering crew.
10. Cost The basic cost of the vessel is MCr1,298.597
  • Architects Fee: MCr12.986
11. Construction Time 126 weeks (29 months) as standard.
  • Build times can be reduced by mass production and the efficiencies such processes generate, by increased financing, and by allotting additional yard resources and facilities to the construction contract.
12. Comments Standard cargo capacity amounts to 7.0 Tons. The cargo hold can be sealed and has independent life support and environmental systems.
