The TC11 Falbin class Destroyer is a warship.
The TC11 Falbin class Destroyer is a destroyer class deployed by the Trooles Confederation. Examples of the class can be encountered throughout the coreward parts of Theta Borealis Sector. The vessel has a fully streamlined conical structure hull. It is fitted with fuel scoops and fuel purification plant allowing it to perform wilderness ocean refueling.
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 craft) carried on the ship. Tonnage on the universal ship profile is shown in kilotons (thousands of tons) where necessary. 
|1.||Tonnage|| The TC11 Falbin class Destroyer is constructed using a 1,100 Ton hull built in a fully streamlined conical structure configuration. The hull is capable of wilderness ocean refueling.
|2.||Crew|| x48 personnel.
|3.||Performance|| The vessel mounts a Jump-2 drive, a Maneuver-5 drive, and an upgraded fusion Power Plant-6, giving performance of Jump-2 and 5-G acceleration. The ship has an agility rating of 5 and an emergency agility of 5. The internal fuel tankage is sufficient for a Jump-2 and gives the power plant 4 weeks duration. It is fitted with drop tanks, should extended range operations be required.
|4.||Electronics|| Adjacent to the bridge are a pair of Model/5 fib computers.
|5.||Hardpoints|| x11 hardpoints.
|6.||Armament|| TC12 Ivorholm class Destroyer are fitted with weapon systems for naval service.
|7.||Defenses||Factor-3 hull armor|
|8.||Craft||x4 4T Grav APCs|
|9.||Fuel Treatment||The vessel has internal fuel tankage of 286 Tons. They are delivered with a new set of optional jump 2 drop tanks, which can be fitted as needed.|
|10.||Cost|| The basic cost of the vessel is MCr1,183.643 (base)|
|11.||Construction Time|| 132 weeks as standard, 106 weeks in bulk.
|12.||Comments|| Standard cargo capacity amounts to 5.0 Tons.
History & Background (Dossier)
The TC11 Falbin class Destroyer class is used by the Trooles Confederation. These fully streamlined conical structures can land on planetary surfaces. This class is characterized by less acceleration and more armor. They have two computers which expands their ECM abilities. The marines lost their dropships and must rely on a platoon of four Grav APCs. Originally a security specialist was part of the crew, the admiralty realized this was redundant with the 24 marines embarked and removed that billet, for a savings in cost and a slight expansion in cargo capacity. Common to all the destroyers in this series, they lack some jump range with only enough internal fuel for a single Jump-2. The additional armor pushed the price per unit above the larger TC12 Ivorholm class Destroyers. The rationale for the smaller maneuver drives was that the power plant couldn't provide enough power for the evasive abilities, therefore the extra acceleration was wasted. Several captains feel this was foolish, to lower the acceleration of a pursuit vessel.
