The War Hound class Destroyer is a warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

War Hound class Destroyers serve with the navy of Sudi Verisia, an important world lying within the Distant Fringe region.

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 War Hound class is constructed using a 3,000 Ton hull built in a Wedge configuration. The hull is fully streamlined, giving good atmospheric performance that is further enhanced by its onboard gravitic systems.
  • There are 8 airlocks located around the vessel. The cargo hold is accessed by an armored hatch and has a service crane.
  • The vessel has sturdy retractable legs, allowing surface landings.
2. Crew 48 personnel, including 8 Marines.
  • 4 Officers, plus 1 Marine NCO.
  • 36 Enlisted.

Accommodations

  • There are 27 staterooms. All quarters are double occupancy.

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 a Power Plant-6, giving performance of Jump-2 and 6-G acceleration. The ship has an agility rating of 4 and an emergency agility of 6. The internal fuel tankage is sufficient for one Jump-2 and one additional consecutive Jump-1 (an "emergency retreat") and gives the power plant 4 weeks duration.
  • The engineering section has a main control room.
    • Ladders, gantries and platforms give access to the machinery.
  • The jump drive utilizes a lanthanum hull grid.
  • The jump drive is fitted with a jump governor.
4. Electronics Adjacent to the bridge is a Model/6fib computer: no backup computer is installed.
  • There are multiple workstations and control points throughout the vessel.
  • The vessel is fitted with communications equipment, an advanced sensor array, and has an avionics suite.
    • It is fitted with backup commo and sensor systems.
  • It has a transponder unit that can be deactivated on command.
  • It is equipped with a sophisticated ECM package.
5. Hardpoints 30 hardpoints.
  • The listed battery groupings are standard configurations for the class. Alternative battery groupings may be designated for specific missions.
6. Armament The normal weapons fit-out for a War Hound class is:

There are 5 unused hardpoints.

7. Defenses The hull is plated, structurally reinforced, and built with secure bulkheads and compartments that give it a High Guard armor rating of 5.
  • 8 triple sandcaster turrets, typically grouped into one battery of 8 linked turrets.
  • The vessel is not fitted with screens or other passive defensive systems.
8. Craft Flight Section

The Ship's Boats are housed in a dedicated hanger: the hanger is a sealable compartment with a volume of 78.0 Tons.

9. Fuel Treatment The vessel has internal fuel tankage of 1,080 Tons.
  • The hull is fitted with fuel scoops.
  • The vessel is equipped with a fuel purification plant that can refine all onboard fuel in a few hours: the plant is operated and maintained by the engineering crew.
10. Cost The basic cost of the vessel is MCr3,067.442
  • Architects Fee: MCr30.674
11. Construction Time 134 weeks (31 months) as standard.
  • Build times can be reduced by mass production and the efficiencies such processes generate, by increased financing, and by allotting additional yard resources and facilities to the construction contract.
12. Comments Standard cargo capacity amounts to 1 Ton: it serves as a magazine for the Heavy Missile Launcher.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

War Hound class Destroyers serve with the Sudi Verisian Navy, a part of the military forces of the world of Sudi Verisia. It carries enough fuel internally for a jump 2, with a jump 1 reserve for tactical retrograde operations. The armor is considered sufficient to resist internal critical hits from surface strikes. They are move vulnerable against radiation and meson weapons.
