History & Background (Dossier)

The Militant Pilgrim class Combat Transport class is used by the Tenjada Moralitate's Tenjada Naval Forces (TNF). There ten of these converted transports in each of the three squadrons. The military versions are almost impossible to differentiate from the civilian ones. This puts civilian vessels at risk in combat zones and allows the military versions to serve as Q-ships. The basic and reliable vessel has sacrificed its spacious hold, for a larger power plant. Vast missile bays are fitted to the cargo holds. And marines are berthed in every available compartment from bulkhead to bulkhead.
