Starships are designed with the Classic Traveller format, using High Guard Shipyard v1.13 written by Andrea Vallance.

The Bunker class Close Escort is a warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

It is fully streamlined with a surprising well armored needle/wedge hull. Equipped with fuel scoops and on board fuel purification it can conduct wilderness ocean refueling. Its maneuver drives develop 3 G acceleration for safe close orbits of massive gas giants, while retaining a 3 agility rating. It carries enough internal fuel for jump 2 with a jump 1 reserve. It is fitted with jump 2 drop tanks for extended range stand off/penetration raids. It carries a massive model 6 computer adjacent to the bridge. The fiber optic backups required too much space in the cramped avionics bay and were omitted.

It is designed to fire missile salvos with a pair of triple missile turrets while closing with the enemy to bring its two powerful fusion guns to bear. Radiological hazards are a concern, because the hull is too cramped for nuclear dampers and meson screens.
