The KSbA Model A-23 class Lifeboat is a non-combatant smallcraft.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

One of the most common lifeboats used throughout the Imperium is the KSbA Model A-23, manufactured by Kaufmann Sternschiffbau Amt.

The TL–8 craft masses 19.6 metric tons and is capable of carrying three conscious passengers (including pilot) and an additional twenty in five cold sleep berths, for a total of twenty-three passengers.

The Model A-23 incorporates an ablative heat shield and simple retro-rocket for atmospheric entry under most conditions. In addition, fuel sufficient for a soft landing under all but the most extreme gravities and a parasail landing parachute permit a reasonable last minute choice of landing sites. A combination of extremely simple controls and a small on board auto-pilot allow even the most inexperienced small craft pilots a good chance of safe planet fall.

The Model A-23 lifeboat costs Cr14,000,000.
