Description (Specifications)[edit]

Battle Rider: A battle rider is a nonjump-capable vessel which is otherwise armed and armored like a battleship. By eliminating the jump drives and their associated controls and power plant support, the internal space they would occupy may be allocated to additional armor, weaponry, or agility. of any two vessels of equal tonnage, a battle rider (...which is not burdened with jump drives and required jump drive support) would logically be superior to a jump-capable battleship.

Strategy & Tactics (Doctrine)[edit]

Battle Riders: Non-jump-capable capital ship intended to stand in the line-of-battle in space combat, and carried interstellar by a battle tender.

Two opposite views in naval architecture have dominated the design of the major battleships of space navies.

  1. The battle rider concept involves a large jump-capable tender carrying a complete Battle Squadron (BatRon) of two to ten heavily armed and armoured battle riders.
  2. The opposite concept is the battleship, a large jump-capable ship which carries the jump drives and fuel tanks internally.

The battle tender, so integral to the concept of the battle rider, is little more than a large dispersed structure (up to a million tons) with jump drives, fuel tanks and basic controls. By dispensing with the need for jump drives and jump fuel tanks on each of the riders, each becomes ton for ton more heavily armed and armoured. The concept does not allow for the possibility of a superior force; no matter how good a rider is, if it meets a superior adversary, it is placed in a position of winning or dying. Retreat is nearly impossible without losses.

It is generally held that, in any meeting between a battleship and a battle rider of equal tonnage, the battle rider will triumph.

Supraclass Archetypal Roles[edit]

These vessels typically serve the following archetypal roles:

BR-class Battle Rider Supraclass Archetypes
Archetype Type Code Exemplar Remarks
Battle Rider BR Nolikian class Battle Rider Battle Rider are large subcraft designed to be carried by tenders. They are rarely built larger than a typical cruiser and many weigh in at the average destroyer and escort displacement levels. Since they carry no jump drives, this space can be used for weapons and armor giving them combat advantages over FTL starships.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

In set piece warfare, a force of Riders can be difficult to defeat. But in the fluid warfare that has typified operations against the Zhodani and Virus, Riders have been a serious washout. Under current naval doctrine, Riders are always used in the strategic defensive role, fortifying refueling sources within the Regency Frontier and interface worlds in a band 3 parsecs into the safe. Some Rider squadrons are deployed into regions Wildside adjacent to the Regency, along with a handful of Scapegoats, laying in ambush of Vampireships. Pound per pound versus jump drive-equipped ships, a rider will ordinarily triumph.
