Basic Ship Characteristics[edit]

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]

Basic Ship Characteristics [2]
No. Category Remarks
1. Tonnage / Hull 600 tons. The Light Transport is constructed using a 600 dTon hull built in a wedge configuration. The hull is fully streamlined: the ship is equipped with fuel scoops.
  • Individual sections of the ship are divided by bulkhead walls. Sections of the ship can be isolated in the event of an emergency.
  • The hull includes internal grav plates and inertial compensators. All accessible sections of the hull have life support.
2. Crew The Light Transport requires 7 crew: 1x Pilot, 1x Navigator, 2x Engineers, 2x Gunners, and 1x Medic. Individual accommodations are provided to all crew: if the crew go double occupancy up to 3 staterooms are available to paying passengers.
3. Performance The vessel mounts a DeVoss-type Jump-1 drive, a Maneuver-1 drive, and a Power plant-1, giving performance of Jump-1 and 1-G acceleration. The ship has an Agility rating of 0 and an Emergency Agility of 1. There is fuel tankage of 246 dTons, sufficient for four jump-1s and giving the power plant four weeks duration. The vessel is fitted with a fuel purification plant.
  • The engineering section has a main control room.
  • The jump drive utilizes a lanthanum hull grid.
  • The jump drive is fitted with a jump governor.
  • In military service, the class may be fitted with collapsible or dis-mountable fuel tanks, allowing them to perform as extended range vessels.
4. Electronics Adjacent to the bridge is a computer model/4 fib.
  • The vessel is fitted with communications equipment, a sensor suite and an avionics suite.
5. Hardpoints The ship is fitted with 6 turrets.
6. Armament These are grouped into:
  • One missile battery, consisting of 4 linked triple turrets
7. Defenses These are grouped into:
  • One sandcaster battery, consisting of 2 linked triple turrets
8. Craft The ship carries a 2-ton air-raft, housed in a dedicated hanger.
9. Fuel Treatment Yes.
10. Cost The basic cost of the vessel, complete with an air-raft, is MCr257.045.
  • The design is exclusive to the armed forces of the Rimward Federation. Architectural plans for privately constructed vessels must be drawn up, at a cost of MCr2.58.
  • If multiple examples of the design are ordered all of the ships in the production run qualify for a 20% discount, which reduces the price per unit to MCr205.636.
11. Construction Time Construction Time: 96 weeks for a single unit, 77 weeks in quantity.
12. Comments There are 7 staterooms and 16 low berths, primarily used to transport wounded personnel or prisoners. Cargo capacity amounts to 230 dTons.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Nine in service. Designed and built at Dal Hallen for the Rimward Federation. They are posted in several systems to support fleet elements for coordinated defense of the Federation.

The Rimward Federation Navy uses the Dal Hallen class for limited logistical support of deployed troop units and to bring supplies to major combatants. A large number of variants exist, particularly with regard to the fuel tankage and cargo storage, allotted weapons systems, onboard electronics, and the fit out of internal spaces.

  • These vessels are much sought after by freelance traders.
  • Each crew member has their own private cabin, a rare luxury in the military. With double occupancy, up to 3 passengers can be carried.

Distant Fringe Vessels[edit]

The Distant Fringe is said to be a far spinward-rimward area inhabited by colonists and refugees originating on Terra. The region is extremely isolated, separated from the rest of Charted Space by vast, almost uncrossable rifts that were once broached by a system of calibration Points and the use of tankers. Those few academics within Charted Space who have found references to the Distant Fringe regard it as little more than a tall tale. Likewise, many of the inhabitants of the Distant Fringe believe the existence of Charted Space to be mythical.[3]

Vessels originating within the Distant Fringe are very rarely encountered outside of the region. However, misjumps do occur and anomalies with bizarre spacetime and Jumpspace effects exist: as such, craft of this type are not entirely unknown within Charted Space.[4]
