The Three Sisters class Heavy Jump Transport is a huge transport starship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

It is a vessel with 1-G and J-1 performance with a Unstreamlined Open Structure Hull used as a Project Cargo Ship. It is a class of heavy cargo haulers, an immense Unstreamlined Open Structure Hull "spine" with "arms" (containing the jump drive hyperfield projecters) that can be moved to "wrap around" the cargoes. It has a special, custom jump drive capable of projecting a hyperfield around irregular shaped objects. Tonnage is with fuel for two Jump-1s. The Sisters never travel alone; they are usually accompanied by tender holding the support crews needed to "attach" and "detach" the cargoes, as well as tankers for fuel for longer jumps and, in less stable and secure areas, armed mercenary vessels for security.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The Three Sisters are a three-ship class of heavy cargo haulers built in starting in 1128 by Midlothian Shipyards, the first two, the Elizabeth and the Anne, were commissioned by McTaggart & Singh Cartage, the Caledonian transportation firm, for hauling huge cargoes through jump space. Over the years, they have hauled mining rigs, hulked and incomplete warships, entire prefabricated up-port sections, and even asteroids up to 250,000 tons, on jobs both within the Principality and all of Reaver's Deep.

In 1190, Midlothian built a third "Sister", the Hana, for a heavy transport firm in the former Third Imperium.
