Aheilr Escort

design by Pete Grey


The Aheilr class Escort is an Aslan ship in heavy use with most mid to large sized clans, either as a primary combatant for the former, or as a support ship for the latter. The ships distinctive "bottlenosed" shape inspires human crews to call it "Flipper." A common sight along the Hierates borders in antebellum times, in the border surveillance and security roles. While the ship lacks a spinal mount, its ample laser and missle armament actually makes it slightly overgunned. Its 5-G performance makes it a bane to many Human and Aslan smugglers operating along the main Hierate frontier. Troops are added on a provisional basis, usually hot-bunking with the rest of the crew. As with most current Aslan designs, its armament is remotely operated, usually being portioned between several gunners.
