The Rapacious class Command Carrier is a specialized fighter-carrying warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

It is a vessel with 6-G and J-4 performance with a partially streamlined close configuration hull. This class serves with the 112th Fleet, among others. This vessel incorporates common imperial design features including the standard Jump-4 requirement, 6 Gs acceleration, a large cargo hold, and enough low berths for a frozen watch. The close configuration hull is partially streamlined for gas giant refueling with fuel scoops and on board fuel purification. There are back-ups in case of battle damage. There is a back-up bridge with a Model/9 fib ship computer. This flag bridge usually supervises flight operations.
