The Duchy of Inar based out of Inar (world) has a vibrant TL-14 or TL-E ship building industry, known for innovative designs and clever Naval Architecture. They are best known for their unstreamlined cylinder hull tail-sitter ship designs and sphere hulled smallcraft specialized for star system defense. They also build some of the finest fusion guns and ECM systems in Imperial Space.
Class Naming Practice/s & Peculiarities
Vessel Peculiarities: The Bullfrog is normally used as a mobile fighter base within a home system. It is more a "fighter tender" than a true carrier. As it normally is part of a system's defense fleet, it only uses its nominal jump ability as a last ditch escape, or for in-system jumps. The shape of the hull and the placement of the fighters allows this ship to operate as a tender while grounded (...on an airless moon, for instance), and systems which operate Bullfrogs often construct supply bunkers with this in mind.
