The Tleiatre class Battle Leader is a widely respected auxiliary combat support starship within Aslan Space.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

It is a vessel with 4-G and J-3 performance with a streamlined needle hull.

  • It carries medium light armament and a military defensive suite. Primarily a coordination ship, the Warlord class mounts enough weaponry for most routine encounters, but it is not intended for strictly ship-to-ship actions, and fares poorly against opponents of equal size designed for combat purposes.
  • It ordinarily carries two subcraft, ten ship's vehicles, and drones only when needed.
  • It has a 63 sophont crew and 42 marines.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The ship is designed to carry headquarters forces to battle, and from there, to coordinate the activities of ground forces and ships of a small squadron. It is equipped with extra sensor gear, communications facilities, and a second computer, which can be used for setting up complex battle simulations or to solve military problems without interfering with ship operations.

The ship has been used in other functions as well. Heavy armor has made it an excellent choice as a landing craft for troops taken from other ships, though it is only occasionally used in this fashion. The presence of extensive medical facilities and the use of a Medevac pinnace has also tended to make Battle Leaders into mobile Aid Stations. Both of these, and other jobs which have been assigned to these versatile ships, have tended to remain secondary to the prime job of coordination and command control, however.

Class Naming Practice/s & Peculiarities[edit]

Vessel Peculiarities: Space is also provided for twenty passengers. A battle group commander and executive officer, a squadron commodore and exec (if the ship is to serve as flagship for an independent force), a variety of staff officers, an owner's representative, and six medical officers serving in the battalion aid station carried on board can all be accommodated in the passenger space on board.

Class Naming Practice/s: The Tleiatre (often translated roughly as "Warlord" or "Leader of Hosts") class of Battle Leaders is often employed as a headquarters vessel for campaigns involving units of Battle Group (battalion) level or higher.
