Description (Specifications)[edit]

They are heavily armored needle/wedge hulls capable of hiding in the atmospheres of gas giants lying in ambush. They are capable of 6G acceleration with a 4-Agility rating. They are designed with several redundant systems, which allow them to absorb considerable punishment. They are fitted with fuel scoops but need not worry about fuel purification. It carries a pair of model/5 fib ship computers with an auxiliary bridge, and a low watch to replace fallen crew.

The TL–11 hulls don't have jump drives and can not leave the system in which they were build. The Ch'kaahi (world) system defense fleet lacks as yet, the ability to transport these monsters to other systems.

They are fitted with the best particle accelerator spinal mounted weapon system available for ship killing. They are armed with four repulsor bays, seventeen heavy missile bays, two hundred triple sand caster batteries, five dual plasma guns, and one hundred and forty triple pulse laser turrets.

They carry a company of 126 marines with ninety drop capsules. The marines are supported by a squadrons of ten 30 dton fighters, a company of Sath Alliance Grav APCs, and two 20dton retrieval boats.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Designed and built for the Sath Alliance Military Forces. These ships operate within the Far Home Sector.

Distant Fringe Vessels[edit]

The Distant Fringe is said to be a far spinward-rimward area inhabited by colonists and refugees originating on Terra. The region is extremely isolated, separated from the rest of Charted Space by vast, almost uncrossable rifts that were once broached by a system of calibration Points and the use of tankers. Those few academics within Charted Space who have found references to the Distant Fringe regard it as little more than a tall tale. Likewise, many of the inhabitants of the Distant Fringe believe the existence of Charted Space to be mythical.[3]

Vessels originating within the Distant Fringe are very rarely encountered outside of the region. However, misjumps do occur and anomalies with bizarre spacetime and Jumpspace effects exist: as such, craft of this type are not entirely unknown within Charted Space.[4]

Class Naming Practice/s & Peculiarities[edit]

Each vessel within the class is named by the government of the state that produces it. They generally draw on traditional naming protocols and it is not uncommon for a historical class name to be reused.

  • Individual vessels within the class are issued specific serial numbers and transponder codes.
  • Naming a ship is considered a serious affair and is generally accompanied by a traditional ceremony, usually pouring a local beverage over the bows of the craft. Starfarers tend to be superstitious folk and a ship with a frivolous name is considered "unlucky".
