The TC13 Falcon class Destroyer is a warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The TC13 Falcon 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[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 craft) 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 The TC13 Falcon class Destroyer is constructed using a 1,300 Ton hull built in a fully streamlined conical structure configuration. The hull is capable of wilderness ocean refueling.
  • The vessel has two airlocks. The cargo hold is accessed by a large bay doors that also serves to anchor docking clamps for service vehicles.
2. Crew x38 personnel.
  • x11 command, x6 engineering, x6 gunnery, x3 service and x12 marines in 21.5 double occupancy staterooms.

Accommodations

  • There are 21.5 Staterooms.
    • All Staterooms are given over to the crew. All crew quarters are double occupancy.
  • There are no Low Berths.

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-6 drive, and an upgraded fusion Power Plant-7, giving performance of Jump-2 and 6-G acceleration. The ship has an agility rating of 6 and an emergency agility of 6. 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.
  • The engineering section has a main control room.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The TC13 Falcon class Destroyer class is used by the Trooles Confederation. These fully streamlined conical structures can land on planetary surfaces. They carry a token marine squad. They don't have subcraft or ship's vehicles. The armor has been upgraded. They feature the offensive punch of the heavy missile bay matched with the best speed and agility in the fleet. Designed to serve as a pursuit vessel. No enemy ship can elude them. A back up model 5 fib computer was fitted to assist them as an informal electronic warfare vessel for smaller squadrons.
