The Oromet Delight class Fleet Tender is part a very recent surge in major warship production. A huge arms race has swollen fleet sizes with massive combatants, hereto for very uncommon on the distant fringe. It was designed to transport as many of the numerous Oromet Class System Defense Boats into combat as possible and to facilitate rapid redeployment of defensive assets along expected pathways of enemy advance. Operating within Halcyon Sector: two have been completed, making a bold statement of deterence to any would be military adventures by neighboring hostile states.
The 184 marines are a reinforced company with 20 capsule launchers and 106 stored assault capsules. They have eight 6T Leset class Grav APCs. It can carry enough fuel for a single Jump-2 but is fitted to accept Jump-2 drop tanks to extend its operational range.
- The vessel is a TL-12 design.

Basic Ship Characteristics
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. 
|Basic Ship Characteristics |
|1.||Tonnage||The Oromet Delight class Fleet Tender class is constructed using a 126,000 dTon hull built in a dispersed structure configuration. The hull is not streamlined, and requires fleet support for refueling operations.|
|2.||Crew|| 1,355 personnel.
Accessible areas of the hull are fitted with grav plates and inertial compensators and have full life support and environmental systems.
|3.||Performance|| The vessel mounts a Jump-2 drive, a Maneuver-2 drive, and a Power Plant-3, giving performance of Jump-2 and 2G acceleration. The ship has an agility rating of 0 and an emergency agility of 2. It has internal fuel tankage is sufficient for a single jump-2s and gives the power plant 4 weeks duration.
|4.||Electronics|| Adjacent to the bridge are a pair of efficient Model/6 fib computers.
|5.||Hardpoints|| x1,260 hardpoints.
|6.||Armament||The normal weapons fit-out for the class is:|
|7.||Defenses||The hull structurally reinforced, and fitted with secure bulkheads and compartments.|
|9.||Fuel Treatment|| The vessel has internal fuel tankage of 28,980 dTons.
|10.||Cost|| The basic cost of the vessel, with out subcraft, is MCr64,604.906.

The Oromet Delight class Fleet Tender is a new class of warship: it was built in secret and is supplanting the older Leset class Fleet Tender as the preeminent command and control flagship of the Protectorate of Leset fleet. Designed and built in the Leset system, the Oromet Delight class Fleet Tender is designed to take full advantage of the stockpile of Oromet Class System Defense Boats available but stranded for lack of transport. Working together the fleet can more 31 SDBs at one time. The 22 fighter squadrons are carried to support surface, fleet operations as well as provide a combat space patrol to screen the launching and recovery operations of the x12 5,000 ton SDBs. Now that news of their existence has leaked into the press, the class is expected to operate on fleet maneuvers throughout the Distant Fringe region.
Distant Fringe Vessels
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.
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.
Class Naming Practice/s & Peculiarities
Class Naming Practice/s: 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".
