Emperor Gavin-Class System Defense Boat

design by TravllerTNE

From the design submittal form found in the Headquarters of the 108th Imperial Fleet,Old Expanses Sector by RCES excavation teams:

UXIUS Defense Systems has met the call of the Third Imperium with the Emperor Gavin Class System Defense Boat.

Named for the distinguished Emperor who fought the Solomani Rim War, The Emperor Gaving Class SDB displaces 900 tons of liquid hydrogen and is capable of 6Gs of continuous acceleration for 6 hours and is powered by a 4125 MW power plant for 6 months. This vessel is equipped with a powerful 6000Mj Spinal Mount Neutral-Particle Accelerator-Weapon, an unprecedented weapon for a ship of its size. With 5 deadly 450Mj anti ship Xray laser Barbettes and a 3 launcher, 33 missle Missle Bay, the Emperor Gavin is more than capable of engaging targets at extreme range with maximum efficiency. Seven, state of the art, Tech Level 15 Master Fire Directors can provide pinpoint targetting accuracy and missle control. The Emperor Gavin is capable of interdicting and engaging any unauthorized spacecraft up to the Light Cruiser Classification.

Defense is not slighted, either. To protect the spacehands and officers of the Imperial Navy, the Emperor Gavin is equipped with 5 Turret Sandcasters, an efficient 9MW Meson Screen, 600 sensor decoys, and a hull over 5.3 centimeters thick of proven Bonded Superdense Armor. In addition, there is a 450Mj Xray Laser Barbette (standard Imperial Socket) powered and designed to fire rapidly at over 3 shots per minute in either an anti missle role or offensively.

Equipped w/ EM Masking and an EMS jammer, detection by hostiles can be avoided,while the sensor suites contained ensure that trained crews have more than enough potential to avoid such deception themselves.

Two High Tech TL15 Model Fb Computers help control the vessel. 4, 1000 AU Maser Comms and a 1000AU Radio unit ensure communications w/ the command and control facilities where the Emperor Gavin is to be deployed. There are both a fully equipped Electronic Shop and Machine shop that make the ship capable of self repair for extended operations.

This is the Emperor Gavin Class System Defense Boat and is the ship for the defense of Imperial Assets against all foes, without and within.
