The Fleet Tanker is constructed using a 500,000 dTon hull built in a partially streamlined close structure. The ship is equipped with fuel scoops and on board purification.

  • Individual sections of the ship are divided by bulkhead walls. Sections of the ship can be isolated in the event of an emergency.
  • The hull includes internal grav plates and inertial compensators. All accessible sections of the hull have basic and extended life support.


The vessel mounts a jump-4 drive, a maneuver-2 drive, and a power plant 4, giving performance of jump-4 and 2G acceleration. The ship has an agility rating of 2 and an emergency agility of 2. There is fuel tankage of 402,000 dTons, sufficient for a jump 4 and a jump 2 reserve with an additional 82,000 tons for fleet distribution. The power plant has a four week duration.

  • The engineering section has a main control room.
  • The jump drive utilises a lanthanum hull grid.
  • The jump drive is fitted with a jump governor.

Main Section[edit]

Adjacent to the bridge is a computer model/9 fib: the vessel carries an additional backup computer model/9 fib. All work stations are equipped with dynamically reconfigurable, linked holographic displays. There are 1,259.5 staterooms and no low berths. Double occupancy accommodations are required for all crew. Cargo capacity amounts to 470 dTons of provisions for fleet vessels.

  • The vessel is fitted with radio, laser and maser system wide communications equipment, an advanced active and passive EMS sensor arrays, full ECM, and an avionics suite.


The Fleet Tanker requires 2,514 crew: 250x command, 700x engineering, 53x gunnery, 1,000x service, and 11x Flight. There are 500 ship board security to resist boarding attempts. The subcraft carry their own crew onboard.


The ship is fitted with 40 triple sand caster turrets. Each fires as an independent battery. There are factor 9 nuclear dampers and factor 9 meson screen and each has an emergency back up to fail over to in the event of extensive battle damage. There is a single 100 dton repulsor bay and a single 100dton missile bay.


The ship carries five 100 ton light auxiliaries and five 1,000 ton heavy auxiliaries. These are sometimes swapped out for combat craft, light riders or scout couriers. Each subcraft has its own dedicated hangar.
