Description (Specifications)[edit]

It is a vessel with 4-G and J-3 performance with a streamlined needle hull. In its role as a mercenary transport, however, delivering troops and supporting them in action, the ship performs quite well. While often employed singly, but can be encountered in the many of other ships where more force is deemed necessary. The Intruder Transport can carry 63 troops in cabins and bunkrooms, plus 190 individuals in low berth, for a total of 253. Mercenary troops carried on board vary from one unit to another.

  • The Intruder Transport can carry 63 troops in cabins and bunk rooms, plus 190 individuals in low berth, for a total of 253. Mercenary troops carried on board vary from one unit to another.

All officers in the unit —- from the company commander down to the leaders of each platoon —- remain awake at all times, as does the company NCO. Four medical people and ten mechanics are also kept on standby. All other troops, including additional non-combatant personnel, are kept in low berths until the ship arrives at a new destination.

The presence of an owner's agent on board will displace one of the ship's senior officers, causing a doubling up somewhere in the accommodations. Such an agent will be present any time the ship is operating away from the main unit.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

In its role as a mercenary transport, however, delivering troops and supporting them in action, the ship performs quite well. It is often employed singly, but can be encountered in the company of other ships where more force is deemed necessary.

"The Aslan at War", an Intruder Transport normally carries the following personnel: One platoon (41 individuals) out of low berth far shipboard security duties, ready for combat and the three other combat platoons are kept in low berth. An additional unit - attached for support or additional firepower as needed - may also be present. All officers in the unit - from the company commander down to the leaders of each platoon - remain awake at all times, as does the company NCOIC. Four medical people and ten mechanics are also kept on standby., All other troops, including additional noncombatant personnel, are kept in low berths until the ship arrives at a new destination. The presence of an owner's agent on board will displace one of the ship's senior officers, causing a doubling up somewhere in the accommodations. Such an agent will be present any time the ship is operating away from the main clan bases.

Class Naming Practice/s & Peculiarities[edit]

Vessel Peculiarities: The vessel is built not just to transport troops to the field of battle, but also to give them support once they arrive. Intended for a broad range of mercenary duties, the ship is completely self-sufficient. It is not, however, well-suited for deep space combat situations. Against well-coordinated orbital or planetary defenses, or a fighting ship of the same size, the Intruder Transport fares very poorly indeed.

Class Naming Practice/s: Designed to transport and support a full company of mercenary troops and their equipment, the Eiaikeiar (usually translated as "Hero"; also "Honored Warrior", "Valorous Conqueror", etc.) class Intruder Transport is an excellent example of Aslan shipbuilding at its' finest.
