Type-L 1000 Ton Carrier


SOC-14 5K
The Type-L Random Castle 1000-ton carrier is the centerpiece for light task forces which can perform commerce raiding, anti-piracy or fast planetary assault (against specialized, low-tech or low-population targets) actions. Usually accompanied by 3-4 Superraider-class 1000-ton frigates and, (in planetary assaults) several 1000-ton troop transports or (as support in fleet actions) several 1000-ton resupply ships.

Book 2 design. Type-L Random Castle Carrier. 1,000 tons. Jump-4, 3G, 440 tons fuel. Model/4. 26 staterooms, 6 emergency low berths. 10 hardpoints. 3 triple pulse lasers, 2 triple beam lasers, 2 triple missile racks, 3 sandcasters. 12*10-ton fighters, 1*30-ton ship's boat, 2 air/rafts. 30 crew, 12 pilots. 59 tons cargo. 632.85 MCr. 29 months.
I looked down the last couple of pages of The Fleet forum, but could find no topic for the Superraider (or the assault transport, either).

That depends on the population and any other ships that are in the strike, and the purpose of the strike. I.e. in a quick raid it might be one to three Random Castles and three to ten Superraiders, while in a major planetary assaults - backed by at least a squadron of dreadnoughts - it could be several dozen Random Castles and an appropriate number of Superraiders.
