Seeking information concerning the starships used in the game Imperium.

Is there a list of the starships in a Traveller game format? Class Name; Tonnage; etc. For example what is the famous Terran Confederation Missile boat class named?

Does the game FFW have this type info?

The only canon answers I know of to the Imperium ships question hasn't been published yet

GURPS Traveller Interstellar Wars will probably have the answers...

And no, FFW doesn't identify the ship types either

The Fighting Ships Supplement mentions how many of some Battleships are stationed in the Spinward Marches but not when.

The "101 Starships" for GURPS Traveller book by bits is in the format I was hoping to find.

GURPS Traveller Interstellar Wars does have a number of ship designs.

The version of the missile boat given differs a bit from the way I would have designed it and the Terran CL and Imperial capital ships are missing.

Note that each counter in Imperium represents a group of ships (you didn't think a division of infantry would fit in one freighter, did you?), so that a high counter factor could represent a few big ships or many small ones.

When I think of missile boats, I think of something like this...

MB-1776 RI MB-A1566H2-E86600-45009-0 MCr1511 1900tons
Bearing 1 11 1 Crew=27
batteries 1 11 1 TL=14
Passengers=0. Low=14. Cargo=121 Fuel=1010 EP=114 Agility=0
Note: Book-2 Drives (Z/Z/Z) and declare emergency agility every turn.

The tech level of the time was 10 to 11. The ships had Jump 1 or 2 only.

There probably also isn't a single class of ships represented in each type. For example, during the IW timeframe, the Terrans probably don't field just one light cruiser design. Instead, they have several related designs (successive improvements) along with a few that are completely different in style.

That situation would be analagous to the state of naval units in World War 2 where the US fielded a number of different classes for each ship type.

Yeah, the TL-11 version I wouldn't use (it's too well defended and too Munchkin) is this.

MB-1066 Billy the Bully MB-A1266E2-B80000-32008-0 MCr1885 1900tons
Bearing 1 1 11 1 Crew=28
batteries 2 1 11 1 TL=11
Passengers=0. Low=14. Cargo=349 Fuel=440 EP=114 Agility=5
Note: Book-2 M-Drive and PP (Z/Z) and declare emergency agility every turn.
