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.

Basic Ship Characteristics [2]
No. Category Remarks
1. Tonnage The TC15 Edhoda class Light Cruiser is constructed using a 1,500 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 x86 personnel.
  • x11 command, 6 engineering, 5 gunnery, 7 flight, 3 service and 54 marines in 46 double occupancy staterooms.


  • There are 46 Staterooms.
    • All Staterooms are given over to the crew. All crew quarters are double occupancy.
  • There are 0 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 is a Model/5 fib computer.
  • There are multiple workstations and control points throughout the vessel.

MCr1,144.338 (qty)
  • Architects Fee: MCr14.304
11. Construction Time 180 weeks as standard, 144 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 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 TC15 Edhoda class Light Cruiser class is used by the Trooles Confederation. These fully streamlined conical structures can land on planetary surfaces. They carry two dropships and a platoon of TC004 Rambler class Grav APCs for the marine company. Limitations of the design include: the light hull armor and a weaker sand caster battery. The missile bay is used for orbital bombardment. The design is faster and most agile which requires a much larger fusion power plant. The 54 marines can use drop capsules to attack from orbit. The design suffers from no computer back ups. They dispense with the plasma guns in favor of a more powerful beam laser battery.
