Republique Class Barque

design by Micheal Bailey


Until the first Aquitaine Class Frigate enters service, the Republique Class Barque is the largest military starship yet to be constructed in the Commonwealth. The Republique, or Type 14 Barque is an evolutionary design based on the 600t Eyre Class TL-11 Barques already in service. Advances in technology led to the design of a larger and more capable Eyre, with an upgraded sensor and weapons package. The first example of this class (the Medoc Republique) entered service with the Medoci Navy in 1197.

Like almost all Commonwealth starships, the Type 14 is capable of surface landings. It also carries a 95 ton shuttle for landings on unknown or potentially hostile worlds. Designed for armed exploration and reconnaisance, the Barque carries a complement of 12 troops (Commonwealth or local marines). Fuel scoops and an on-board purification plant give the ship the capacity to mount long missions without support.

Five "Republique" Class Barques are currently in service.

The Republique is intended for use by the Near Bootes Confederation, a pocket empire set up in the Solomani Rim, but can easily be used in another setting.
