History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The Quesha FR-6 class Buffered Asteroid Monitors, are incapable of wilderness refueling without assistance. They have no subcraft or capacity to skim fuel. They are used as part of a well articulated, multi-faceted defense in depth strategy. This is the smallest hull that could carry and power the most powerful meson gun available at TL–11. The thick hull and dense armor renders it immune to most surface hits.
