The Sakhai class Assault Carrier is a subcraft-carrying warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

These heavy carriers are designed for invasions and open wars. If a Sakhai appears in the skies over a world, then that world will be under the claw in a matter of days. The Sakhai’s distinctive ‘horseshoe’ profile allows its ranks of beam and missile turrets to rake targets on either side, while protecting the fusion bay mounted in the centre. The normal crew consists of a captain, executive officer, 3 pilots, navigator, 4 engineers and 20 gunners. It can carry one hundred and sixty warriors in addition to its normal crew and there are another two hundred low berths for frozen troops or captives. While the Sakhai is capable of landing on a planet, it takes a skilled hand at the controls and a dedicated team of engineers to keep the ship spaceworthy after a landing. A bad landing can warp the ship’s dorsal struts, crippling it. Many Aslan outposts have a downed Sakhai at their hearts.
