Basic Ship Characteristics[edit]

Following the Imperial Navy and IISS Universal Ship Profile and data, additional information is presented in the format shown in the sidebar. 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.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

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.

It is a System Defense Carrier that was designed on Inar (Deneb 1213) in 1094.

Class Naming Practice/s & Peculiarities[edit]

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.

Class Naming Practice/s: No information yet available.
