Bengal class Carriers were designed for service with the Bain Defense Squadron, the space force of Bain, a world lying in Spica Sector and a member of both the Boötean Federation and the Solomani Confederation. Though the carriers are tiny by the standards of most Solomani Confederation vessels they are occasionally called upon for Federation and Confederation service. Bengals carry a single bay-mounted Heavy Missile Launcher, which is used primarily to bombard enemy targets. They serve as flagships for Fighter groups, typically carrying two small composite squadrons. The vessel is a TL-10 design.

Basic Ship Characteristics
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 subcraft) carried on the ship. Tonnage on the universal ship profile is shown in kilotons (...thousands of tons) where necessary. 
|1.||Tonnage||The Bengal class is constructed using a 1,000 Ton hull built in a Close Structure configuration. The hull is partially streamlined, giving a relatively limited atmospheric performance that is reliant on its onboard gravitic systems.|
|3.||Performance||The vessel mounts a Jump-1 drive, a Maneuver-2 drive, and a Power Plant-2, giving performance of Jump-1, 2-G acceleration and producing 20 energy points. The ship has an agility rating of 1 and an emergency agility of 2. The internal fuel tankage is sufficient for two consecutive Jump-1s and gives the power plant 4 weeks duration.
|4.||Electronics||Adjacent to the bridge is a Model/3 computer: no backup computer is installed.
|6.||Armament||The normal weapons fit-out for|
|7.||Defenses||The hull is unarmored.
|9.||Fuel Treatment||The vessel has internal fuel tankage of 220 Tons.|
|10.||Cost||The basic cost of the vessel is MCr415.655
|11.||Construction Time||120 weeks (28 months) as standard.
|12.||Comments||Standard cargo capacity amounts to 37.0 Tons.
Bengal class Carriers were designed for service with the Bain Defense Squadron, the space force of Bain, an advancing Solomani world lying in Spica Sector. They carry a variety of locally manufactured Fighters that are typically organised into two composite squadrons. The ship is fitted with a Model/3 fib ship computer and has a communications center. More than half of the listed crew are fighter pilots. Bengals are partially streamlined to allow wilderness refueling.
