Starship – 2000ton Type-TI Frontier Transport

General Information

Using a 2000-ton, TL15 hull, the Type-TI_v0-5 Class Transport mounts jump drive-V, maneuver drive-V, and power plant-V, giving a performance of jump-2 and 2G acceleration. Fuel tankage supports a 2 parsec jump, at 200t per parsec, and 2 months of operations. Attached to the bridge are two Computer Model/5 std. There are 12 staterooms and 5 low berths. Installed weaponry include 3 T3 Missiles, 3 T3 Fusion Guns, and 4 T3 Sandcasters. The ship does not have cargo space. The ship has a streamlined hull, with scoops and intakes for frontier refueling.

Carried craft include 1 Cargo Shuttle, 1 Air/Raft Enclosed, and 1 Grapple Set Triple. The ship has 20 crew (3 bridge crew, 2 engineers, 12 gunners, 2 auxiliary flight crew, and 1 medic) but can be technically operated by 6 crew, and can carry 5 low passengers.

Notes

This craft is an adaption for the TI that I think is feasible IMTU, given the fact tha this is a company owned transport. The original ship had 12 Staterooms with double occupancy for all but command crew and a total crew of 20 (1 Bridge, 2 Engineer, 10 Gunnery, 2 Flight, 2 Troops, 2 Command, 1 Medic). It aso featured a nuclear damper and EM hardening. I will likely put some more work into the craft.

The MT version had triple Model/9 computers which woud add about MCr 250 to the standard design. Way too much. I believe I can live with two Model/5 bis computers but it wouldn’t be the same design. The MT Type-TI in TRaveller 5 would cost nearly as much as the Type-TJ.

Frontier Transport (Cost OTU: MCr587.9)

Frontier Transport serve mainly Class-C starport near the fringe of the Imperium. They do not normally carry passengers and are known for their relatively cramped crew living quarters, but out on the frontier crews cannot select from an abundance of ships, so theat is an accepted fact.

Crew comfort:     +2
Passenger demand: -5
