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]
#. Category Remarks
1. Tonnage 1,500 tons. It has a partially streamlined cylindrical structure.
2. Crew Extensive berthing for troops are not provided, only a token pair of security specialists are provided in case boarding and searching vessels is required.
3. Performance TBD
4. Electronics TBD
5. Hardpoints TBD
6. Armament The main offensive punch is delivered by the missile bay and the beam lasers and fusion guns provide point defense versus fighters and missiles. These functions are particularly important during convoy and escort duty.
7. Defenses The hull is armored to resist critical hits and there is a single battery of sand casters to provide defense.
8. Craft The lack of dedicated surface interface vehicles is a limitation.
9. Fuel Treatment It is capable of wilderness refueling operations from gas giants.
10. Cost TBD
11. Construction Time TBD
12. Comments The tiny cargo hold means that lengthy cruises are impractical and fleet logistical support is expected.
