Eaaseakh System Defense Boat

design by Pete Grey

Most Aslan clans are not usually able to afford large fleets of jump-capable warships, nor many combatants over 2000 tons. Those financial limitations, coupled with the scattered nature of most clan holdings, creates a couple of constraints in Aslan ship design. First, most military ships will be SDBs. Secondly, the lack of more powerful cavalry coming to the rescue requires those SDBs be constructed in sizes larger than what is normal for equivalent human designs. The Eaaseakh class is but one example of this design philosophy. Heavily armed and armored even for a SDB, its tenacity and ubiquity, coupled with its disk shape, has earned it the moniker "cowpie" from human ship crews. The ship's hull is constructed from TL 14 materials by a handful of clans, but is then shipped to its lower tech customers, who equip it at TL 10-13 . The TL-13 version is displayed below.
