Description / Specifications

The Assault Shuttle is a solid, reliable vessel designed to transport troops and supplies into dangerous areas. Similar designs have been in use from the time the Distant Fringe was first settled.

  • The vessel is a TL 11 design.

Hull

The Assault Shuttle is constructed using an 80 dTon hull built in a generally wedge-shaped configuration. The hull is fully streamlined, plated, and structurally reinforced, with an armor rating of 7.

  • Individual sections of the ship are divided by bulkhead walls.
  • The hull includes internal grav plates and inertial compensators.

Engineering

The vessel mounts a maneuver-5 drive and a power plant 8, giving performance of 5G acceleration. The ship has an agility rating of 5. There is fuel tankage of 6.4 dTons, giving the power plant 4 weeks duration.

Main Section

The vessel is equipped with a computer model/2 and has two crew acceleration couches. There are an additional 30x passenger acceleration couches and 1x small stateroom, fitted out as an assembly area / medical bay. Cargo capacity amounts to 4 dTons.

  • The vessel is fitted with communications equipment, a sensor array, and an avionics suite.

Crew

The Assault Shuttle requires 1 crew: a pilot, but also routinely carries a navigator/gunner.

Weapons

The ship has a single mixed triple turret mounting two beam lasers and one missile rack.

Subcraft

None.

Cost

The basic cost of the vessel is MCr104.550.

  • The ship is a standard design. Detailed architectural plans are widely available and no design fee is chargeable.
  • If multiple examples of the design are ordered all of the ships in the production run qualify for a 20% discount, which reduces their price to MCr83.640.

History

An ubiquitous design used throughout the Distant Fringe, the Assault Shuttle is durable and reliable. The design is representative and a large number of variants exist, particularly with regard to the allotted weapons systems and onboard electronics.

Assault Shuttles are often deployed by vessels such as the Military Ship Transporter.
