The Regal class Battlecruiser is a warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

This design is built around the most powerful spinal mounted meson gun available at TL–14. It also featured ten batteries of every other weapon system available except for repulsors and particle accelerators. They suffer from low agility, despite 6-G acceleration, and carry nearly no armor on their streamlined needle/wedge hull. This is a stereotypical battle cruiser flaw, the guns of the dreadnought with the armor of a tin can destroyer. Their Jump-4 ability allows them to keep pace with standard Imperial fleet maneuvers.

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. [1]

Basic Ship Characteristics [2]
No. Category Remarks
1. Tonnage The Regal class is constructed using a 75,000 Ton hull built in a Wedge configuration. The hull is fully streamlined, giving fair atmospheric performance that is further enhanced by its onboard gravitic systems.
  • There are multiple airlocks located around the vessel. The cargo hold is accessed by large doors and has a loading ramp.
  • The vessel has hardened and contoured ventral surfaces, allowing surface landings.
2. Crew x807 personnel, including x200 Marines.
  • x61 Officers, plus x25 Marine Officers.
  • x546 Enlisted.

Accommodations

  • There are 403.5 Staterooms. Officially, all quarters are double occupancy.
    • In practice, many junior crewmembers are assigned bunk spaces (typically x3 bunks per room), while senior officers enjoy the benefits of individual cabins and flag officers may be granted a suite of rooms.

Accessible areas of the hull are fitted with grav plates and inertial compensators and have full life support and environmental systems.

3. Performance Propulsion:

The vessel mounts a Jump-4 drive, a Maneuver-5 drive, and a Power Plant-6, giving performance of Jump-4 and 5-G acceleration. The ship has an agility rating of 1 and an emergency agility of 5. The internal fuel tankage is sufficient for one Jump-4 and gives the power plant 4 weeks duration.

  • The engineering section has a main control room.
    • Ladders, gantries and platforms give access to the machinery.
  • The jump drive utilizes a hull grid.
  • The jump drive is fitted with a jump governor.
4. Electronics Adjacent to the bridge is a Model/8fib computer: no backup computer is installed.
  • There are multiple workstations and control points throughout the vessel.
  • The vessel is fitted with communications equipment, an advanced sensor array, and has an Avionics suite.
    • It is fitted with backup commo and sensor systems.
  • It has a transponder unit that can be deactivated on command.
  • It is equipped with a sophisticated ECM package.
5. Hardpoints x750 hardpoints.
  • The listed battery groupings are standard configurations for the class. Alternative battery groupings may be designated for specific missions.
6. Armament The normal weapons fit-out for it is:
7. Defenses The hull is plated, structurally reinforced, and built with secure bulkheads and compartments that give it a High Guard armor rating of 1.
8. Craft The vessel carries no subcraft.
9. Fuel Treatment The vessel has internal fuel tankage of 34,500 Tons.
10. Cost The basic cost of the vessel is MCr61,971
  • Architects Fee: MCr619.710
11. Construction Time 200 weeks (46 months) as standard.
  • Build times can be reduced by mass production and the efficiencies such processes generate, by increased financing, and by allotting additional yard resources and facilities to the construction contract.
12. Comments Other Equipment:
  • Cargo Bay: Standard cargo capacity amounts to 18.0 Tons.
  • The cargo hold can be sealed and has independent life support and environmental systems.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

They have been used to lead CruRons of Imperial cruisers for decades, and these ships are mostly relegated to colonial squadrons, sold to client states or mothballed.
