Tigress Class Dreadnought

design by Alvin Plummer


The Tigress is the largest of the TL-15, line-of-battle ship's in the Imperial Navy. Unlike many of the IN's capital ships are focused on a single mission, the 500,000 disp. Tigress is a multimission dreadnaught, combining the functions of a fighter carrier with a big-time meson gun. Standard Imperial Practice is to keep one squadron of Tigress' in each sector. Further information can be found in the Classic Traveller book Fighting Ship's', which gives out Classic Trav stat's for it.

NOTE: The Classic Tigress is built to support 50-ton fighters: however, I chose to use lighter 15-ton fighters simply because I didn't catch this fact until AFTER I had built the Tigress, and had no intention to do the numerous fixes (and design a 50-ton fighter!) that a better translation would require.
