The Type HE class Escort is a light warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Using a 400-ton hull, the Hiver Escort is a warship used for frontier patrol and military escort duties. It mounts jump drive-H, maneuver drive-H, and power plant-H, giving a performance of jump-4 and 4 G acceleration. Fuel tankage for 200 tons supports the power plant and one jump-4. Adjacent to the bridge is a computer Model/4. There are 20 staterooms and no low berths. The ship has four hardpoints and four tons allocated for fire control. Installed on the hardpoints are four triple turrets, two with triple beam lasers, two with a mix of two missile racks and one sandcaster each. There is one ship's vehicle: a 40-ton pinnace. Cargo capacity is 7 tons. The ship is streamlined.

The Hiver Escort requires a crew of ten: pilot, navigator, three engineers, four gunners, and a medic. Twenty additional personnel (a pinnace crew and Federation soldiers) are carried in double occupancy. The ship is valued at MCr280.9 and takes 16 months to build.
