 :COMMENTS
Using a 1000-ton hull, the Aositaoh is built for small-scale clan troop transport and combat operations. It is equipped with the Taiwiue Systems Q12-3q jump drive, the KHAO Model Q.39 maneuver drive, and the Grid 3e Uaiy/Q7 power plant, and is capable of Jump-3 and 3G acceleration. Fuel tankage supports 4 weeks of operations and one jump-3. On the bridge is a computer Model/5.

There are 55 staterooms, one gunner's barracks, two platoon barracks, and no low berths. The ship has ten triple turrets: six triple beam lasers, three triple missile racks, and one triple sandcaster. The ship carries a launch, two pinnaces, four ATVs, and four airlrafts. Cargo capacity is 88 tons. The hull is streamlined.

The cruiser requires a crew of 14: captain/pilot, astrogator, five engineers, sensor tech, four gunners, a medic, and a purser (or the female executive officer). Up to 96 people can be carried with double occupancy; usually including 80 troops (2 platoons) and berths for small craft pilots, clerks, or others as needed.
