The Xenon class Heavy Fighter was designed for service with the Royal Peladon Navy (the RPN), the space arm of the military forces of the Kingdom of Peladon. It has a streamlined flattened sphere configuration and is extremely heavily armored for its size. The vessel is fitted with a sophisticated computer and advanced electronics that are tied into the bridge. The vessel is fast, but the design trades agility for armor. The Xenon class mounts a single fusion gun.

Basic Ship Characteristics
Following the Imperial Navy and IISS Universal Ship Profile and data, additional information is presented in the format shown here. The small craft factor indicates the number of squadrons (...of ten subcraft) carried on the ship. Tonnage on the universal ship profile is shown in kilotons (...thousands of tons) where necessary. 
|Basic Ship Characteristics |
|1.||Tonnage||The Xenon class is constructed using a 90 Ton hull built in a Flattened Sphere configuration. The hull is fully streamlined and has airfoil surfaces, giving excellent atmospheric performance that is further enhanced by its onboard gravitic systems.
|2.||Crew||1 crew (the Pilot).
|3.||Performance||The vessel mounts a Maneuver-6 drive and a Power Plant-8, giving performance of 6-G acceleration. The ship has an agility rating of 0 and an emergency agility of 6. The internal fuel tankage gives the power plant 4 weeks duration.
|4.||Electronics||Adjacent to the small craft bridge is a Model/6 computer: no backup computer is installed.
|6.||Armament||The normal weapons fit-out for a Xenon class is:
|7.||Defenses||The hull is very heavily plated, structurally reinforced, and built with secure bulkheads and compartments that give it a High Guard armor rating of 13.
|8.||Craft||The vessel carries no subcraft.|
|9.||Fuel Treatment||The vessel has internal fuel tankage of 7.2 Tons.
|10.||Cost||The basic cost of the vessel is MCr155.97
|11.||Construction Time||24 weeks (5.5 months) as standard.
|12.||Comments||Standard cargo capacity amounts to 0.4 Tons: it is accessed by a hatch.|
The Xenon class Heavy Fighter is a prototype design that has been designed and constructed, at considerable time and expense, on the world of Bilsham. A single example has been completed and has successfully undergone trials. A second member of the class has been laid down but the completion date is estimated in years.
