The TC14 Ralmu class Destroyer Leader is a warship.
The TC14 Ralmu class Destroyer Leader 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. These are used as flotilla leaders of smaller destroyers and other escort vessels.
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.

History & Background (Dossier)
The TC14 Ralmu class Destroyer Leader class is used by the Trooles Confederation. These fully streamlined conical structures can land on planetary surfaces. They carry two dropships and a platoon of TC004 Rambler class Grav APCs for the marine company. Limitations of the design include: the light hull armor and a weaker sand caster battery. The missile bay is used for orbital bombardment. The design is faster and most agile which requires a much larger fusion power plant. The 54 marines can use drop capsules to attack from orbit. The design suffers from no computer back ups. They elect to use short range plasma guns instead of beam laser batteries.
