The Halaheike class Pocket Warship is a heavy warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The so-called ‘pocket warship’ is a small 1,200-ton spacecraft used by smaller clans for military operations. The Halaheike is heavily armed for its size, with a range of missile launchers, lasers, and particle beams and carries a complement of ten fighters and two launches for boarding actions and customs inspections. The crew consists of a captain, 3 pilots, a navigator, executive officer, 6 engineers, 12 gunners, 2 small craft pilots, 10 fighter crew, and 2 warriors. The 126-ton cargo bay can be easily converted to hold more troops or some 200 low berths, allowing the Halaheike to serve as a troop transport. The design is known for maintenance issues and jump drive failures but the vessel’s main problem is that it tries to do too much in one package and to fit everything in it must use the most advanced Aslan technology, adding to maintenance problems. The Halaheike might be a carrier, assault cruiser, system defence boat, and troop carrier but it is sub-par at all those things. Larger clans that can afford specialist vessels rarely field Halaheikes.
