Ronin Class Scout/Escort

design by Franklin W. Cain

In the Reformation Coalition, relic TL-15 Scout/Couriers are relatively plentiful (compared to other starships). As such, the RC came up with the Multi-Mission Scout (a modified Scout with a 20-ton module in its belly). However, the RC started phasing these out in favor of the Victrix-class Multi-Mission Sloops. One might wonder what is to be done with these surplus Scouts. One use is to modify them for other uses.

All of these Scouts have a Tech Level of "12/15." This is because the TL-15 (bonded superdense) hull was emptied of its TL-15 components, and refilled with TL-12 components. The salvagable TL-15 components were then used in more important RC Navy vessels.

It is intended that these ships can be used in the character generation procedure, where a modified scout ship is called for in the warship column.

Hull shell is TL-15 bonded superdense. All other components are TL-12.

Fuel scoops capable of ingesting 280 kiloliters (20 dt) per hour.

Fuel purification machinery capable of refining 200 kiloliters every six hours (15.3 hours for 510 kiloliters, 1.2 MW).

Power shortfall is usually made up by powering down either the CG Lifters [+10 MW] or the Active EMS [+27.5 MW] or by using only 1 G of acceleration [+50 MW].

MFDs were not installed due to extreme price (MCr 20+ each for 300,000 km [10 hx] range).
