CC-9800 Carrier

Post by Luciana Endivain » 2011-12-18 16:36

Designation:
CC-9800 class Carrier

Purpose:
The Corellian Engineering Corporation has many capital ships ranging in size from corvettes to frigates however all CEC vessels have a glaring deficiency: lack of fighter capacity. Granted, all of CECs starfighters possess hyperdrives but these can be impractical for especially long voyages if they ever come up. This project aims to address this by creating a dedicated carrier vessel for the Correlian Engineering Corporation.

Application:
By taking the CC-9600 class frigate and removing nearly all the vehicle, troop and weapon transport capacity and converting the space into hanger capacity for starfighters, the CEC can save credits by not having to design a wholly new vessel. By reducing the number of turbolasers, and ion cannons, the CC-9800 now fits quad-lasers for anti-starfighter defence and 2 extra tractor beams to help pull in disabled snubs to it's hanger.

Because the vessel uses the CC-9600 chassis and retains all the flight features, this frigate is able to enter planetary atmospheres, useful for providing support to army shuttles or even CC-9600 frigates that suffer from both a lack of anti-starfighter weapons and starfighter support.

The crew reduction stems from the reduction of support personnel needed to maintain the facilities carrying 3,200 troops would require (chefs, weapon techs, vehicle mechanics). Plus, with the light transport vessels gone, space is saved that way especially after keeping 4 smaller shuttles for any necessary troop or crew deployments.

Schedule:
4 Weeks design
1 Month construction of first prototype
3 weeks testing.

Visual Description:

Technical Specifications:

Name/Type: CC-9800 class Carrier
Designer/Manufacturer: Corellian Engineering Corporation
Combat Role: Light Carrier
Crew: 410 + 140 Gunners
Length: 250 Meters
Speed: 70 MGLT, 800 Kph
Hyperdrive: x1 (x16 Backup)
Shield Rating: 2,880 SBD
Hull Rating: 1,520 RU
Weapons: 8 turbolaser batteries, 6 ion cannons, 12 Corellian-Quad Laser Cannons, 4 tractor beam projectors
Fighter Capacity: 6 Squadrons
Troop Capacity: 80 troops
Support Craft: 4 shuttles

Weaknesses:
  • Fewer anti-capital ship weapons mean this ship will not fare very well against even other frigates.
Proposed Upgrades:
  • Introduce automation to the vessel to further reduce crew requirements and possibly gain an extra squadron of starfighters.

OOC Commentary: Not much to say about this project really aside from it fills a role in the CEC that they don't yet have while also re-purposing a vessel design they already do have. So instead of a military transport ship, now they have a carrier with some halfway decent anti-starfighter power without totally sacrificing its anti-capship guns.

Nice re-purposing...

There is nothing technically wrong with the adjusted numbers. Well done!

APPROVED!

I don't think there's too much point RPing the design and development of this vessel since it's literally converting an existing one to be used as a carrier. Furthermore, the NIF doesn't really use a whole lot of CEC vessels aside from Heavy Gunships in First Fleet, CC-9600s in Second, DP20s in Third, Assassin-class and DP20s in Fourth and CC-7700s in Fifth Zeon. Okay, so we do use CEC ships, just nowhere near the numbers I'm sure the New Republic would rely upon. As an aside, now that Corellia (and it's wealth of shipyards) are in NIF hands, would it be unreasonable to think the New Republic would simply do what we're doing when it comes to producing CEC ships over at, say, Dac? Ie, we're able to build Star Destroyers and all the variants yet those are Kuat Drive Yard vessels and, last I checked, we don't have Kuat in our possession yet we've got Star Destroyers. So would the NR have their shipyards pumping out CEC ships despite Corellia (and the CEC) now under the NIF banner?

That aside, unless there are other issues with the stats and the design, I suggest updating the DB to reflect the new vessel, move this to the archives and call it a day! :D

Project Status: Approved and Completed.

About time the Corellian Engineering Corporation had a dedicated carrier vessel. Now all they need are vessels beyond the "frigate" size. Corellian Battleship anyone? :D
