The Sacred class Utility Boat is a Military Ship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Sacred class Utility Boat class is used by the Tenjada Moralitate's warships. They carry a very advanced computer to provide the best ECM suite. They are fast but lack agility and several naval vessels like the Holdemar class Destroyers deploy these utility boats. They are streamlined to take advantage of planetary atmospheres. They can deliver troops, cargo and crew. The weapons are used to buy just enough time to allow escape. The vessel has a fully streamlined, needle/wedge structure hull. It is fitted with fuel scoops allowing it to perform wilderness ocean refueling.

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]

  • There is an emergency locker.
3. Performance The vessel mounts a Maneuver-6 drive, and an upgraded fusion Power Plant-6, giving performance of 6-G acceleration. The ship has an agility rating of 0 and an emergency agility of 6. The internal fuel tankage gives the power plant 4 weeks duration.
  • The engineering section has a main control room.
4. Electronics Adjacent to the bridge is a Model/3 computer.
  • There are multiple workstations and control points throughout the vessel.
