The Jaradin class Missile Corvette is a light warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Designed and built at Jaradin for the Unity of Sed. These ships operate within the Far Home Sector. The TL–12 partially streamlined spherical structure hulls carry enough fuel, internally for a single jump 2, with a jump 2 reserve for strategic withdrawal. They can carry drop tanks with 28 days of power plant fuel and an additional jump 2 as needed. There are in service with the Unity of Sed Navy. They are equipped with fuel scoops and on board fuel purification for wilderness gas giant refueling. The weapons include one dual fusion gun turret for point defense, two triple beam laser turrets, and two triple missile turrets for offense. The defenses include extremely thick armor. They have a model 6 fib computer mounted adjacent to the bridge and are capable of 3 G acceleration and have no agility rating. They have a 6 ton G Carrier. These ships are expensive for their size and are used for patrol duties. These ships are popular with their crews because of the massive armor. The spherical shape reduced the surface area, relative to the volume to make that armor possible, and the spherical hull was seen as a cost savings.

Tonnage: 500 tons (standard), 7,000 cubic meters.
Crew: Pilot, Navigator, 3 Engineers, Medic, 4 Gunners
Performance: Jump 2, 3G acceleration. Power plant-3. 15 EP. Agility 0.

Fuel Treatment: Fuel Scoops and On Board Fuel Purification
Cost: MCr 496.162 standard. MCr 396.93 in quantity.
Construction Time: 80 weeks standard. 64 weeks in quantity.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

No information yet available. 12 in service.

Distant Fringe Vessels[edit]

The Distant Fringe is said to be a far spinward-rimward area inhabited by colonists and refugees originating on Terra. The region is extremely isolated, separated from the rest of Charted Space by vast, almost uncrossable rifts that were once broached by a system of calibration Points and the use of tankers. Those few academics within Charted Space who have found references to the Distant Fringe regard it as little more than a tall tale. Likewise, many of the inhabitants of the Distant Fringe believe the existence of Charted Space to be mythical.[3]

Vessels originating within the Distant Fringe are very rarely encountered outside of the region. However, misjumps do occur and anomalies with bizarre spacetime and Jumpspace effects exist: as such, craft of this type are not entirely unknown within Charted Space.[4]

Class Naming Practice/s & Peculiarities[edit]

Each vessel within the class is named by the government of the state that produces it. They generally draw on traditional naming protocols and it is not uncommon for a historical class name to be reused.

  • Individual vessels within the class are issued specific serial numbers and transponder codes.
  • Naming a ship is considered a serious affair and is generally accompanied by a traditional ceremony, usually pouring a local beverage over the bows of the craft. Starfarers tend to be superstitious folk and a ship with a frivolous name is considered "unlucky".
