The Cruelty class is a fast, deadly combat vessel with 6-G performance and excellent agility. Its primary armament is paired beam lasers: it is also fitted with a missile launch system that carries three missiles. It has a broadly wedge shape and is an airframe design, allowing it to operate both in planetary atmospheres and the vacuum of space.
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 Cruelty class is constructed using a 20 dTon hull built in a generally wedge-shaped configuration. The hull is fully streamlined and has airfoil surfaces, giving good atmospheric performance that is further enhanced by its onboard gravitic systems.|
|2.||Crew||Total Crew Complement: 2
|3.||Performance||The vessel mounts a Maneuver-6 drive and a Power Plant-16, giving performance of 6-G acceleration and generating 3.6 Energy Points. The ship has an agility rating of 6. The internal fuel tankage is sufficient to give the power plant approximately 4 weeks duration.
|4.||Electronics||The cockpit contains x2 acceleration couches and control equipment. The vessel is fitted with a Model/2 Computer: no backup computer is installed.|
|6.||Armament||The normal weapons fit-out for a Cruelty is:|
|7.||Defenses||The hull is unarmored.
|8.||Craft||The vessel carries no subcraft.|
|9.||Fuel Treatment||The vessel has internal fuel tankage of 3 Tons.|
|10.||Cost||The basic cost of the vessel is MCr44.700.
|11.||Construction Time||24 weeks (5.5 months) as standard.
|12.||Comments||The vessel has no internal cargo capacity.|
Cruelty class Fighters serve with the navy of the Korsumug Empire. Other Korsumug fighters rely on missiles: the Crueltys use of internally powered beam lasers gives it a particularly good combat endurance.
- Huge numbers of the craft have been built.
Class Naming Practice/s & Peculiarities
- The Cruelty class has a huge powerplant putting out a lot of energy. This large signature means that the class are relatively easy to detect using sensors.
Class Naming Practice/s:
Vessels of the Korsumug Empire are given alphanumeric designations and callsigns by other interstellar states. KF refers to 'Korsumug Fighter' (a designation applied to all Korsumug smallcraft combat units), 1 is a type indicator, and 'a' refers to the version of the vessel, relating to its construction tech level. Type codes will often repeat: 'Cruelty' is an easy to remember name to identify the specific type of vessel.
- Individual vessels are generally named by their crews.
