The Lintula class Survey Vessel is an armed exploratory starship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

IISS extended-duration Survey Vessel (ESDV). Lintula-class is one of several adaptations of the "Fighting Scout" — a design originally produced in response to a demand for a robust starship capable of undertaking long reconnaissance missions in potentially hostile territory. The design uses well-tested, reliable systems and carries sufficient fuel for 5 jumps, which gives it a useful safety margin when entering unexplored systems.
