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 subcraft) 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 / Hull The Mongol Risen class is constructed using a 72,000 Ton hull built in a Cone configuration. The hull is fully streamlined, giving good atmospheric performance that is further enhanced by its onboard gravitic systems.
  • There are 34 airlocks located around the vessel. The cargo hold is accessed by large doors and has a loading ramp.
  • The vessel has hardened ventral surfaces, allowing surface landings.
2. Crew 657 personnel, including 74 Marines.
  • 59 Officers, plus 4 Marine Officers.
  • 524 Enlisted.

Accommodations

  • There are 328.5 Staterooms. All quarters are double occupancy.
  • There are 329 Low Berths: these hold the Frozen Watch. The low berths are tended by the vessel's medical staff.

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-2 drive, a Maneuver-4 drive, and a Power Plant-5, giving performance of Jump-2 and 4-G acceleration. The ship has an agility rating of 2 and an emergency agility of 4. The internal fuel tankage is sufficient for one Jump-2 and an additional consecutive Jump-1 (an "emergency retreat") 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 lanthanum hull grid.
  • The jump drive is fitted with a jump governor.
4. Electronics Adjacent to the bridge is a Model/6fib computer: the vessel has a backup Model/6fib computer.
  • There are multiple workstations and control points throughout the vessel.
  • The vessel is fitted with communications equipment, an advanced sensor array, and has an avionics suite.
    • It is fitted with backup commo and sensor systems.
  • It has a transponder unit that can be deactivated on command.
  • It is equipped with a sophisticated ECM package.
5. Hardpoints 720 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 an Mongol Risen 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 6.
8. Craft Flight Section

The Ship's Boats are housed in a dedicated hanger: the hanger is a sealable compartment with a volume of 234 Tons.

Drop Capsules

There are 12 Drop Capsule tubes and their associated loading equipment.

  • There is dedicated holding space containing an additional 59 Drop Capsules.
9. Fuel Treatment The vessel has internal fuel tankage of 25,200 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 MCr70,894.689
  • Architects Fee: MCr708.947
11. Construction Time 166 weeks (38 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 350 Tons. The cargo hold can be sealed and has independent life support and environmental systems.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Mongol Risen class Cruisers serve with the Sudi Verisian Navy, a part of the military forces of the world of Sudi Verisia.

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".
