The Inselm Mark Five class Fighter is a combatant smallcraft.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The TL–11 streamlined needle/wedge hulls have fuel scoops for wilderness ocean refueling. They can deploy aboard Yugo Class Patrol Ships and are fitted with a model/2 ship computer, which is hampered by the lack of a small craft bridge. The single crew member has an acceleration couch and limited life support which precludes lengthy missions. The armament is a triple missile turret. The design is very fast and agile for dog fighting.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Designed and built at Inselm boatyards for the Worlds of The Leader. These ships operate within Far Home Sector. There are currently five of these vessels in service with the Glorious Leader's Benevolent Patrol Flotilla.

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]

Class Naming Practice/s & Peculiarities[edit]

Individual vessels are generally named by their crews.

  • Individual vessels within the class are issued specific serial numbers and transponder codes.
  • Naming a ship is considered a serious affair and is generally accompanied by a traditional ceremony, usually pouring a local beverage over the bows of the craft. Spacefarers tend to be superstitious folk and a ship with a frivolous name is considered "unlucky".
