Default You are a Subsector Fleet Admiral

Hi Guys,
I thought I'd spice things up a little with an exercise <evil grin>

The location: Lunion Subsector

Situation: YOU are the Lunion Subsector Fleet Admiral. Your job is to patrol the subsector with the following assets:

Usually remain in the Lunion Subsystem as the Flag Admiral's ship.
1 Heavy Cruiser
1 Fleet Escort
2 Close Escorts

DesRon 1:
3 Fleet Destroyers

DesRon 2:
3 Fleet Destroyers

Independent Commands:
6x Escort Destroyers
20x Type T patrol cruisers

Fleet Elements within the Subsystem of Lunion are all based within the four naval bases located within Lunion, which are:


Your task as the Fleet Admiral, is to determine where these ships will be assigned their area of operations.

Without getting too deeply into the whys and wherefores of which ships are expected to perform their yearly maintenance, or when ships are to recieve their liberty and so forth, the purpose of this thread is to determine where those ships should be sent on patrol operations, and why.

For instance, Adibicci, a relatively low tech world (as compared against Lunion and/or Strouden for example) has a high enough population on its world to have its own planetary naval force, and possibly its own "Colonial Fleet" structure. As such, it would not be required to be patroled. That and the fact that Imperial Fleet squadrons are based there, make it highly unlikely that the subsector fleet assets will be required to patrol the area.

Patrol Cruisers utilize a different crewing solution than do Destroyer Escort or Destroyer ships. Crews swap out of the Patrol cruiser every 5 months, giving them a 5 month cruise, with 1 month base assignment. Each crew therefore ends up serving 10 months per year on a cruise assignment, and 2 months of base assignment (which incidentally, includes R&R and training assignments for individual crew members). Thus, at any given base, there will be both monthly arrivals of a patrol cruiser, and within 1 week, that same patrol cruiser will leave base with its new crew for its next 5 month duration assignment.

The purpose of this exercise, in addition to stirring up interest in this section of the forums, is to also make operations of the subsector navy come more into focus and hopefully, feel more alive for your own Traveller Universe.
