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

The Reckless Errand class Close Escort is a very light warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

With its thick hull plating there is little rooms left over in this efficient craft. Therefore, no exotic weapons, no sub craft, no cargo hold, and no marines, means this ship is designed for fleet activity with plenty of support craft around and is not intended to be sent off alone for multi-role independent operations. An all-business, no frills fighter, pure and simple.

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 craft) carried on the ship. Tonnage on the universal ship profile is shown in kilotons (thousands of tons) where necessary. [1]

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

When delivered on time and on budget, the first naval squadrons who received deliveries of this quick and agile ship were soon won over. Well built and dependable, these tough little ships are fast enough to keep up with Imperial fleet maneuvers. There is an eager market for these beauties among Starmercs when surplus lots become available.
