    Strategy & Tactics (Doctrine)[edit]

    Industrial Vessels and their militarized cousins, the Combat Support Ships, do the heavy lifting in Charted Space: factory ships, mobile refineries, mining vessels, nano-manufacturies, and all sorts of industrial applications. Such ships come with escorts where needed, and rarely have enough speed or armament to escape marauders if they did show up. They are often enormously expensive and no smart corporation or megacorporation would leave an asset such as these unprotected.

    Supraclass Roles[edit]

    Industrial Vessels typically serve the following roles:

    Size-Class Roles for Transport Vessels[edit]

    1. Industrial Smallcraft (UG) (1 to 99 tons)
    2. Prospector Vessel (J) (100 to 2,499 tons)
    3. Light Industrial Vessel (GL) (2,500 to 99,999 tons)
    4. Medium Industrial Vessel (GM) (100,000 to 249,999 tons)
    5. Heavy Industrial Vessel (GH) (250,000 to 499,999 tons)
    6. Superheavy Industrial Vessel (GS) (500,000 to 999,999 tons)
    7. Ultraheavy Industrial Vessel (GU) (1,000,000 or more tons)

    Civilian Subcraft[edit]

    Civilian subcraft (...both smallcraft and bigcraft) are carried by some of these vessels:

    1. Barge (WB)
    2. Utility Craft (U)

    Supraclass Archetypal Roles[edit]

    These vessels typically serve the following archetypal roles:

    G-class Industrial Vessel Supraclass Archetypes
    Archetype Type Code Exemplar Remarks
    Industrial Vessel G Heyan Rose class Freight Tractor None
    • G = Great Industrial
    Agricultural Vessel GA No exemplar yet available. Primarily focused on production of agricultural goods. Notionally similar to Construction or Factory type except for the type of output (which affects means of production and typical market).
    • A = Agricultural
    Construction Vessel GC Legionary class Corvette Typically for construction of one thing (such as another ship or a building) at a time. Usually smaller than most GFs.
    • C = Construction
    Factory Ship GF Library class Archive Ship Typically for construction of many things at once, using economies of scale (thus, usually larger than GCs).
    • F = Factory
    Refinery Vessel GG Prelude class Mobile Refinery Refinery vessels that can obtain their own unprocessed fuel (which is most refinery vessels) are classified by type: GGI can mine ice, GGW can scoop water and/or skim gas giants, and GGM (for Multi) can do both. Just having a fuel processor on board does not qualify a ship as GG by itself; fuel refining must be the primary mission of the ship.
    Mining Vessel GJ SI-049 Company Store class Mining Tender Mining ships that can also build things are GCM or GFM depending on construction focus.
    Heavy Industrial Vessel GH No exemplar yet available. None
    • H = Heavy
    Heavy Industrial Vessel GL No exemplar yet available. None
    • L = Light
    Medium Industrial Vessel GM No exemplar yet available. None
    • H = Medium
    Utility Vessel, Tug GQ Powhatan class Heavy Tug None
    • Q = Quartermaster, Combat Support, Logistics, Utility, etc.
    Superheavy Industrial Vessel GS No exemplar yet available. None
    • S = Supraheavy
    Ultraheavy Industrial Vessel GU Prelude class Mobile Refinery None
    • U = Ultraheavy
    Ship Tender / Ship Repair Vessel GV Ocklosh class Salvage Ship A Ship Tender is a vessel intended to maintain and repair stricken ships. Essentially, a floating maintenance and repair yard with all labs, workshops, tools, and a limited quantity of supplies to perform such duty, with more sourced from supply ships attending the fleet. The ship tender and fleet tender terms are often, though mistakenly, used interchangeably.
    • V = Ship Repair, Ship Salvage, etc.
    Prospector Vessel J Type J class Seeker Prospector Vessels or Very Light Industrial Vessels are typically smaller mining and prospecting vessels that participate and perform important roles in the resource extraction and processing industries.
    Industrial Smallcraft UG Tomar class Industrial Mining Launch None
    • U = Utility
    NOTES: There is semantic overlap between many of the classes and codes. Some codes organize by mission or capability, others by size and tonnage, and yet others by other characteristics.
