Notes

Fuel scoops (2363m3 per hour = 50% of full load), fuel purification machinery (4.726MW) requires 36 hours for a full load of 4726m3

This ship is strictly a military space vessel. While it is streamlined for planetary landings, it does not have contragravity to allow it to hover. It spends as little time in the atmosphere as possible.

G-Rating is 6G. TL-12 g-compensators are only good to 3G; however, the thrust axis is aligned with the "up" direction of the ship. Thus, the crew can handle 4G's, and simply feel their own weight. At 5G's, crew in workstations are unaffected, and others (damage control), suffer +1 DiffMod. At 6Gs, workstation crew are at +1 and others are at +2.

The only deviations from the "standard" design sequence are: * I adopted the TL*50 limit on laser energy from the TML * I didn't understand the logic behind forcing bays to specific dimensions, so I ignored that when I designed the lasers * I ignored the requirement to recalculate G-Rating based on mass if the mass was greater than 15t/m3

Design dated May 6, 1995 using original version of FF&S (haven't yet applied all of the errata)
