The TC11 Falbin class Destroyer is a warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The TC11 Falbin class Destroyer is a destroyer class deployed by the Trooles Confederation. Examples of the class can be encountered throughout the coreward parts of Theta Borealis Sector. The vessel has a fully streamlined conical structure hull. It is fitted with fuel scoops and fuel purification plant 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]

Basic Ship Characteristics [2]
No. Category Remarks
1. Tonnage The TC11 Falbin class Destroyer is constructed using a 1,100 Ton hull built in a fully streamlined conical structure configuration. The hull is capable of wilderness ocean refueling.
  • The vessel has two airlocks. The cargo hold is accessed by a large bay doors that also serves to anchor docking clamps for service vehicles.
2. Crew x48 personnel.
  • x11 command, x4 engineering, x4 gunnery, x2 service, x3 flight and x24 marines in 27 double occupancy staterooms.

Accommodations

  • There are 27 Staterooms.
    • All Staterooms are given over to the crew. All crew quarters are double occupancy.
  • There are no Low Berths.

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

  • There are internal monitoring and security systems throughout the vessel. Individual sections of the hull can be sealed off.
  • There are multiple emergency lockers.
3. Performance The vessel mounts a Jump-2 drive, a Maneuver-5 drive, and an upgraded fusion Power Plant-6, giving performance of Jump-2 and 5-G acceleration. The ship has an agility rating of 5 and an emergency agility of 5. The internal fuel tankage is sufficient for a Jump-2 and gives the power plant 4 weeks duration. It is fitted with drop tanks, should extended range operations be required.
  • The engineering section has a main control room.
  • The jump drive utilizes a lanthanum hull grid.
  • The jump drive is fitted with a jump governor.
4. Electronics Adjacent to the bridge are a pair of Model/5 fib computers.
  • There are multiple workstations and control points throughout the vessel.
  • The vessel is fitted with communications equipment, a basic sensor array, and has an avionics suite. They have system range laser, microwave and radio communication arrays.
5. Hardpoints x11 hardpoints.
  • The listed weapons systems are typical for the class.
6. Armament TC12 Ivorholm class Destroyer are fitted with weapon systems for naval service.
  • x1 triple beam laser turrets firing as a single,factor 3 battery.
  • x1 100 ton factor 8 missile bay
7. Defenses Factor-3 hull armor
8. Craft x4 4T Grav APCs
9. Fuel Treatment The vessel has internal fuel tankage of 286 Tons. They are delivered with a new set of optional jump 2 drop tanks, which can be fitted as needed.
  • The hull is fitted with fuel scoops.
  • The vessel is equipped with a fuel purification plant that can refine all onboard fuel in 8 hours: the plant is operated and maintained by the engineering crew.
10. Cost The basic cost of the vessel is MCr1,183.643 (base)
MCr946.915 (qty)
  • Architects Fee: MCr11.836
11. Construction Time 132 weeks as standard, 106 weeks in bulk.
  • 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 Standard cargo capacity amounts to 5.0 Tons.
  • The cargo hold can be sealed and has independent life support and environmental systems.
  • Sections of the hold may be isolated if desired and can be provided with specialized environmental conditions, typically refrigeration.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The TC11 Falbin class Destroyer class is used by the Trooles Confederation. These fully streamlined conical structures can land on planetary surfaces. This class is characterized by less acceleration and more armor. They have two computers which expands their ECM abilities. The marines lost their dropships and must rely on a platoon of four Grav APCs. Originally a security specialist was part of the crew, the admiralty realized this was redundant with the 24 marines embarked and removed that billet, for a savings in cost and a slight expansion in cargo capacity. Common to all the destroyers in this series, they lack some jump range with only enough internal fuel for a single Jump-2. The additional armor pushed the price per unit above the larger TC12 Ivorholm class Destroyers. The rationale for the smaller maneuver drives was that the power plant couldn't provide enough power for the evasive abilities, therefore the extra acceleration was wasted. Several captains feel this was foolish, to lower the acceleration of a pursuit vessel.
