The TC8 Nedric class Corvette is a warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The TC8 Nedric class Corvette is a corvette 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 partially streamlined cylindrical structure hull. It is fitted with fuel scoops and fuel purification plant allowing it to perform wilderness gas giant 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]

Accommodations
  • There are 46 Staterooms.
    • All Staterooms are given over to the crew. All crew quarters are single 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.

Basic Ship Characteristics [2]
No. Category Remarks
1. Tonnage The TC8 Nedric class Corvette is constructed using a 800 Ton hull built in a partially streamlined cylindrical structure configuration. The hull is capable of wilderness gas giant refueling.

3. Performance The vessel mounts a Jump-1 drive, a Maneuver-1 drive, and an upgraded fusion Power Plant-1, giving performance of Jump-1 and 1-G acceleration. The ship has an agility rating of 0 and an emergency agility of 1. The internal fuel tankage is sufficient for two Jump-1s and gives the power plant 4 weeks duration. It is fitted with drop tanks, should extended range operations be required.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The TC8 Nedric class Corvette class is used by the Trooles Confederation. These partially streamlined cylindrical structures are a contribution from the planetary navy of a member state. This world had an older local system defense monitor design based on an armored tube. Armor was the primary concern and all other factors were of secondary importance. Civilian merchant drives were pressed into service and the performance suffered greatly. As a result it is the slowest class of ship in the fleet. It is frequently deployed alone or in pairs because it lacks the speed, agility and range to keep up with the main fleet elements. They also arrived for duty with a pair of obsolete Model 4 fib computers. Plans were in the works for hardware and software upgrades and refits but have yet to be approved. They carry a platoon of marines with a TC02 Grave Endeavor class Dropship and a pair of 4 ton TC004 Rambler class Grav APCs.
