design by Eamon Watters
It has the Imperial standard J-4 and G-6 manouvre, good armour backed up with a sandcaster. It's weaponry consists of two standard missile turrets, and two Instellarms LXR45 X-ray barbettes. These are rapid-fire weapons, capable of firing off a burst almost fourteen times a minute. Against ships of it's own tonnage, it can often stop the target dead with one hit. This fearsome potential has led the vessels to be nicknamed 'Fusion Gunners'.
The ship has a reasonably ranged sensor suite, with a backup passive array. A full EMM system, EMS jammers, and decoys make the Lucifer a hard ship to touch.
Accomodation is tight. Staterooms are provided for the 3 officers, but the rest of the crew must share 8 rooms between them. Often one of the command quarters is freed up to cope with the overspill.
In addition to escort duties, the Lucifer is employed on garrison and patrol duties. It is often employed on detached duties as well, as it's large cargo capacity allows it to function away from support for a considerable time.
Since the collapse this vessel has become the backbone of the Regency Navy, providing a dependable vessel that can 'bring back the goods' in the most dangerous situations.
In the wilds, this ship is encountered less frequently, as a military vessel only worlds which had naval facilities on them pre-collapse usually posess them.
The Lucifer was originally presented for Classic Traveller
in Fighting Ships.
