The Iingar class Light Battle Rider is locally manufactured for supporting imperial fleet operations.

Description / Specifications[edit]

Carried aboard the Iinen Class Fleet Tenders and serving with colonial reserve forces embedded with the 289th Fleet, among others. This is a TL–14 class of light imperial battle rider. It carries the heaviest possible armor, defensive screens and the best available meson spinal mount, allowing this class to contend with and defeat much larger cruisers, especially when working in groups. They have eight missile bays and a hand full of turrets. It carries many redundant systems which allows for their legendary damage control capabilities coupled with their ability to absorb damage render them difficult to destroy or cripple. Retreat, however, is a surprise option not typically associated with other classes of riders. There is a marine platoon, with drop capsules and a recovery cutter. It sacrifices agility to power its weapons, but has 6 G acceleration and enough fuel for jump 1 range. This is held in reserve for strategic withdrawal, when necessary.

Hull / Engineering[edit]

The 9,500 ton (133,000 m3) hull is a streamline needle/wedge configuration and is equipped with fuel scoops and on board purification equipment.

Main Section[edit]

The vessel is capable of 6G acceleration and has jump 1 range. There are staterooms for 160 crew, which includes 46 marines. There is a ventral ten ton cargo bay adjacent to the cutter well.


They have three batteries of triple beam laser turrets, two batteries of fusion guns, a meson spinal mount and eight heavy missile bays.


They carry the best armor, a single battery of triple sand casters and the best screens available at their technology level.


They carry a single 50 ton cutter. This small craft is used to recover the marine platoon.

Background / History[edit]

This is a TL–14 colonial design carried aboard a Iinen class Fleet Tender.
