The Type C class Cruiser is common heavy combatant, a warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Description: Built on an immense 2,000-ton TL-12 streamlined hull, it mounts drives for Jump-3 and 2-G acceleration with supporting fuel tankage for a jump and two months operations. Equipped with a Model/5 computer and extensive sensors, it is also bristling with weapons filling its twenty hardpoints. Internal hangars carry an array of cutters and fighters to expand its reach, and unlike many ships, the cruiser carries crew to man every weapon on a few moments notice. Equally important is the ship’s platoon: more than 20 trained marines capable of defending the ship; boarding enemy vessels, and even operating on their own on planetary operations (world surfaces). [1]

Crew Dossier: The corvette requires a number of crew including marines, fighter pilots, and other combat personnel. [2]
