Huscarle Cruiser

Instellarms Gallóglaigh-class Huscarle Cruiser

The heaviest commonly-seen warship deployed by large companies and nobility with more money than modesty, the Gallóglaigh is 2000 tons of trouser-wetting power in a TL12 frame. Built around a pair of massive particle beam bays, ships of this class stand a decent chance of damaging even heavily-armored warships — if they survive long enough. The secondary battery of long-ranged plasma barbettes and advanced plasma guns threatens to open small vessels such as SDBs or pirate raiders like sardine cans, while the remaining triple turrets provide for more than sufficient defense (and a useful tertiary battery when needed). The cruiser’s 3-parsec jump engines provide good strategic mobility for escorting convoys, but neither their jump nor their maneuver drives are quite up to the standards of Imperial Navy vessels — though the Colonial Fleet is always glad to have ships like these on loan from corporate or aristocratic formations.

Typical crew consists of Captain, 3 pilots, navigator, 6 engineers, Chief Gunner, 24 gunners, 4 small craft crew, 1 mechanic, a medic, Marine officer and 40 Marines. Accommodations for up to 20 additional personnel are available in low berths, but these are seldom used for anyone other than prisoners.
