Type EP

Type EP Destroyer Escort (Patrol)
Tech Level 13

A destroyer escort designed more for patrol than for convoy work (like the Type EC) the Type EP is a standard Imperial Navy design that has been in use for nearly a century. The two purchased by the Party, however, suffered from manufacturing defects and are somewhat sub-standard compared to the normal versions. Deficiencies in the materials used for the hull and armor resulted in a 10% decrease in hull and structural integrity, while the armor is only about 60% of designed effectiveness. Additionally, the hangar bay proved unable to support the intended 40t of small craft; only 30t is actually able to fit in the hangar.

Typical crew for the Type EP consists of a Captain, Executive Officer, 2 pilots, navigator, 5 engineers, 4 gunners, 2 small craft crew and 10 Marines (some of whom often serve as gunners).
