Basic Ship Characteristics
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. 
|Basic Ship Characteristics |
|1.||Tonnage / Hull||The KE6c Plague class Brigantine is constructed using a 600 dTon hull built in a spherical configuration. The hull is partially streamlined and has moderate atmospheric capability: its atmospheric handling characteristics are reliant on its onboard gravitic systems.|
|3.||Performance||The vessel mounts a Jump-3 drive, a Maneuver-4 drive, and a fusion Power Plant-4, giving performance of Jump-3 and 4-G acceleration. The ship has an agility rating of 4 and an emergency agility of 4. The internal fuel tankage is sufficient for one Jump-3 and gives the power plant 4 weeks duration.|
|4.||Electronics||Adjacent to the bridge is a Model/4 fib computer. A backup Model/4 fib is installed in engineering.|
|6.||Armament||The normal weapons fit-out for a Lancer class is:|
|7.||Defenses||The hull is plated, braced, and structurally reinforced. It has an armor rating of 8.
|9.||Fuel Treatment||The vessel has internal fuel tankage of 204 dTons.|
|10.||Cost||The basic cost of the vessel is MCr613.176
The price does not include the cost of the launch:
With its subcraft, a discounted Plague class costs MCr495.469
|11.||Construction Time||96 weeks as standard, 77 weeks in bulk.
|12.||Comments||Standard cargo capacity amounts to 11 dTons.|
Class Naming Practice/s & Peculiarities
The vessel is a solid, sturdy craft used in attack and bombardment roles.
- Earlier variants of the class were fitted with low berths in order to transport prisoners, a feature that has been removed as internal space issues have become more pressing.
A number of examples of the class have been captured and pressed into naval service, most notably by Charter Squadrons of the Royal Peladon Navy.
Class Naming Practice/s:
Vessels of the Korsumug Empire are given alphanumeric designations and callsigns by other interstellar states. KE refers to Korsumug Empire (a designation applied to all Korsumug combat units), 6 is a multiple of hundreds of tons of displacement and also indicates at a glance the number of weapons mounts, and 'c' refers to the version of the vessel, relating to its construction tech level and bracketing its maximum jump potential. Type codes will often repeat: 'Plague' is an easy to remember name to identify the specific type of vessel.
- Individual vessels are generally named by their crews.
