General Description[edit]

The Jyhala class is a cruiser deployed by the Trooles Confederation. Examples of the class can be encountered throughout the coreward parts of Theta Borealis Sector and occasionally within the rimward subsectors of Astron Sector. The vessel has a fully streamlined conical configuration hull and is fitted with fuel scoops and a fuel purification plant, allowing it to perform wilderness gas giant or hydrosphere refueling. Its performance (2-G and J-2) is considered substandard.

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 TC16 Jyhala class Assault Cruiser is constructed using a 1,600 Ton hull built in a fully streamlined conical structure configuration. The hull is capable of wilderness ocean refueling.
  • The vessel has three airlocks. The cargo hold is accessed by a large bay doors that also serves to anchor docking clamps for service vehicles.
2. Crew x152 personnel.
  • x11 command, 4 engineering, 5 gunnery, 11 flight, 3 service and 118 marines in 79 double occupancy staterooms.


  • There are 79 Staterooms.
    • All Staterooms are given over to the crew. All crew quarters are single occupancy.
  • There are 4 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-2 drive, and an upgraded fusion Power Plant-5, giving performance of Jump-2 and 2-G acceleration. The ship has an agility rating of 0 and an emergency agility of 2. 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.
  • 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 x16 hardpoints.
  • The listed weapons systems are typical for the class.
6. Armament TC16 Jyhala class Assault Cruiser are fitted with weapon systems for naval service.
  • There are five triple beam laser turrets firing as a single factor 6 battery
  • There is a 100 ton factor 7 particle accelerator bay
7. Defenses
  • There is one triple sand caster turrets firing as a single factor 4 battery.
8. Craft 4 x 40T Dropships, 4 x 4T TC004 Rambler class Grav APCs
9. Fuel Treatment The vessel has internal fuel tankage of 400 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 MCr1,314.544 (base)
MCr1,051.635 (qty)
  • Architects Fee: MCr13.145
11. Construction Time 192 weeks as standard, 154 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 60 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 TC16 Jyhala class Assault Cruiser class is used by the Trooles Confederation. These fully streamlined conical structures can land on planetary surfaces. They carry four dropships and a platoon of Air Rafts for the marine company. Limitations of the design include: the loss of defensive armor and a weaker sand caster battery. The particle accelerator bay is used for protected forces operations, and it requires a much larger fusion power plant. The 118 marines can use drop capsules to attack from orbit. The 4 lowberths are for wounded or prisoners. The design suffers from less drive performance, no computer back ups, no evasive agility. They dispense with the plasma guns in favor of a more powerful beam laser battery. They carry more cargo to better provision longer duration planet-side military interventions.

Class Naming Practice/s & Peculiarities[edit]

Vessel Peculiarities:
No information yet available.

Class Naming Practice/s:
Vessels of the Trooles Confederation are given alphanumeric designations and callsigns by other interstellar states. TC refers to Trooles Confederation (a designation applied to all Confederation combat units), 16 is a multiple of hundreds of tons of displacement and also indicates at a glance the number of weapons mounts, and when it is used 'b' refers to the version of the vessel, relating to its construction tech level and bracketing its maximum jump potential. Type codes will often repeat: 'Jyhala' is an easy to remember class name to identify the specific type of vessel.

  • Individual vessels are named by a committee using an authorized list.
