The 271st Fleet serves the Third Imperium.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Overview: This fleet is unusual because of its size and composition. There are seven HUGE squadrons of mostly light cruisers. Most of the hulls are inexpensive planetoids, packed with as many heavy nuclear-tipped missile batteries and the largest spinal mounts they can carry and power. The swarm of meson armed ships was hoped to be able to overwhelm smaller numbers of larger ships of the line. Refueling operations can present some problems for this fleet and the combat vessels are limited to jump 3 drives. This fleet is primarily seen as a defensive screening force and optimized for firepower and not strategic mobility.

Goals (Mission)[edit]

Used as a training formation for younger officers, numerous simulations and battle drills are conducted to test the tactical and strategic values of alternatives to large battleship and fleet tender centered squadrons.

Strategy & Doctrine (Operations)[edit]

They are envisioned as giant killers, swarming and dismantling large ponderous ships of the line. Loses are expected, but group efficiency and espirit de corps is intended to ensure the elan to see the job done.

Rank & Grade (Hierarchy)[edit]
