Basic Ship Characteristics [2]
No. Category Remarks
1. Tonnage / Hull The Asia class is constructed using a 300 Ton hull built in a Needle configuration. The hull is fully streamlined and has airfoil surfaces, giving good atmospheric performance that is further enhanced by its onboard gravitic systems.
  • The vessel has 2 airlocks. The cargo hold is accessed by a large door.
  • The vessel has a sturdy retractable undercarriage, allowing surface landings.
2. Crew 7 personnel.
  • 2 command, 2 engineering, 2 gunnery, and 1 service.

Accommodations

  • There are 3.5 staterooms. All quarters are double occupancy.

Accessible areas of the hull are fitted with grav plates and inertial compensators and have full life support and environmental systems.

  • There are internal monitoring and security systems throughout the vessel. Individual sections of the hull can be sealed off.
  • There are multiple emergency lockers.
3. Performance The vessel mounts a Jump-2 drive, a Maneuver-4 drive, and a Power Plant-7, giving performance of Jump-2 and 4-G acceleration. The ship has an agility rating of 3 and an emergency agility of 4. The internal fuel tankage is sufficient for two consecutive Jump-2s and gives the power plant 4 weeks duration.
  • The engineering section has a main control room.
  • The jump drive utilizes a lanthanum hull grid.
  • The jump drive is fitted with a jump governor.

10. Cost The basic cost of the vessel is MCr335.084
  • Architects Fee: MCr3.351
