Union (of) Garth Space Navy Design Plan

This vessel is constructed from a standard design plan which uses a time-tested design features. Assembled from largely pre-fabricated kits, commercial shipyards can quickly build these ships. A naval architectural firm produces these plans in four weeks for 1% of the final ship cost. Because these hulls are so standardized and have been in use for so long, a 10% discount is available.

These hulls are familiar and easy to build. With a small down payment these vessels are made available with government backed financing.


This standard hull costs 80 MCr. and 8 MCr. to streamline it.

Engineering Section[edit]

Drives are installed in the 165 ton engineering section.

It mounts stock L class jump drives, and W class maneuver drive and power plant. In this size hull that produces jump 2, 5G acceleration and 5 power rating. These cost 362 MCr. installed.

Main Compartment[edit]

The brig has an 635 ton main compartment.

  • Bridge: 20 ton standard controls and sensors for 4 MCr.

The pinnace, equipped this way, costs 86.03 MCr. and is included in this design's purchase price. The pinnaces each have two crew: a pilot and a gunner. They can each carry 1.4 tons of cargo. Pinnace A and Pinnace B work together to deliver two 10 ton tracked ATVs (0.06 MCr.), two 6 ton advanced bases (0.1 MCr.) which provides shelter for up to twelve people, six 2 ton 4x4 Wheeled Solar-Electric Scout Cars for 0.024 MCr. Each car requires a scout/driver and can carry up to 5 passengers. They also deploy two 10 ton tracked AFVs.
