Description (Specifications)[edit]

It is a generic class of civilian vessel, the Medium Tanker is a large commercial hydrogen fuel transporter commonly encountered throughout the Distant Fringe region. It is classified as a Tanker and is constructed as a conventional design, although in all respects it qualifies as a long-range vessel. Similar designs have been in use from the time the Distant Fringe was first settled.

Basic Ship Characteristics[edit]

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 [2]
No. Category Remarks
1. Tonnage / Hull TBD tons.

The Medium Tanker is constructed using an 8000 dTon hull built in a generally cone-shaped configuration. The hull is fully streamlined: the ship is equipped with fuel scoops.

  • Individual sections of the ship are divided by bulkhead walls. Sections of the ship can be isolated in the event of an emergency.
  • The hull includes internal grav plates and inertial compensators. All accessible sections of the hull have life support.
  • The commercial liquid hydrogen tanks are served by refrigeration and pumping equipment.
2. Crew xTBD crew.

The Medium Tanker requires 61 crew: 9x command, 14x engineering, 11x gunnery, and 24x service, of which 1 serves as flight crew for the lifeboat when required. In addition the vessel has 3x purification engineers.

3. Performance / Engineering Propulsion:

The vessel mounts a DeVoss-type jump-2 drive, a maneuver-2 drive, and a power plant-2, giving performance of jump-2 and 2G acceleration. The ship has an agility rating of 0 and an emergency agility of 2. There is internal fuel tankage of 1760 dTons, sufficient for one jump-2 and giving the power plant four weeks duration. The vessel has a purification plant capable of purifying both internal and commercial fuel

  • The engineering section has a main control room. The purification facilities have a separate control center.
  • The jump drive utilises a lanthanum hull grid.
  • The jump drive is fitted with a jump governor.
4. Main Section / Electronics Model/TBD fib ship computer.

Adjacent to the bridge is a computer model/4: the vessel carries an additional backup computer model/4. There is a secure locker with a capacity of 1 dTon. There are 40 staterooms. Double occupancy accommodations are required for all except the command crew. There is sufficient accommodation for 5 passengers. Commercial fuel tankage amounts to 4200 dTons.

  • The vessel is fitted with communications equipment and a sensor suite.

9. Fuel Treatment TBD
10. Cost MCrTBD.

The basic cost of the vessel, complete with a Lifeboat, is MCr4521.430.

  • Both craft are standard designs. Detailed architectural plans are widely available and no design fee is chargeable.
  • If multiple examples of the design are ordered all of the ships in the production run qualify for a 20% discount, which reduces their price to MCr3617.144.
11. Construction Time TBD months to build, TBD months in quantity.
12. Remarks Other Equipment:
