Starships are designed with the Classic Traveller format, using High Guard Shipyard v1.13 written by Andrea Vallance.

The Kirchner class Patrol Fighter is a combatant smallcraft.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

A fleet admiral decided that they needed a mixed triple turret and that a pulse laser was essential, as a result the power plant grew and soon there was barely room for a pair of couches, let alone a small stateroom. Acceleration is poor for a fighter at 3-G's and evasion agility, a needed defense for craft this size, is non-existent. A single sand caster is hardly adequate defense, so dog fighting is avoided at all costs.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

As a result of contradictory design demands the Kirchner class Patrol Fighters are not well liked. They were supposed to have a small craft stateroom to facilitate longer patrol durations with better life support capabilities.
