The Kokirrak class Dreadnought is an older, yet still very potent warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Comments: The Kokirrak is a preferred ship for flagship operations due to its extensive admiral's quarters, which include command and communications equipment, as well as entertainment chambers. The ship is capable of controlling a large fleet engagement within a system, as well as holding its own in battle; the combination of fleet controller and line-of-battle ship makes it an asset in nearly any space combat situation. [1]

Troops: Normally, the Kokirraks do not carry troops. It is possible to install modular quarters for up to 2,000 troops (usually only 1,000 are carried) in the cargo hold. A squadron of eight Kokirraks can carry between 8,000 and 16,000 troops or the equivalent of a reinforced division. [2]

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. [3]

12. Comments Black Globe Generators: This class of dreadnaught, when originally designed and constructed, mounted black globe force field generators. Over the years, various ships have suffered black globe generator failures, and the devices have not been replaced. When encountered, there is approximately a 50% chance that the ship will mount a functioning black globe (Factor-4). [16]

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The Kokirrak class dreadnaught is one of the more common classes of capital ships in service in the Spinward Marches; a total of four BatRons of this type serve on permanent station, with harbor assignments at Rhylanor, Regina, Jewell, and Mora. Generally, one squadron of Kokirraks is dispersed into independent ships with ancillary escorts. On patrol, the ships combine training operations with routine patrols and reaction operations. [17]

The Kokirraks are one of the older classes of dreadnaughts in Imperial service, and are now being phased out of service. Within the last decade, several ships have been disposed of to other services such as the scouts, and to other governments, including sector navies and client-states in the Spinward border regions of the Imperium. [18]
