Mubarak-class Corvette


Another escort ship common to the planetary navies of the former Domain of Deneb. The Mubarak (Solomani Arab for "Blessed One") is one of the smallest warships to mount the massive 168 m3 double laser barbettes as standard equipment. The Type E classification is another carry over from the ancient ROM and the Sylean Federation Navy, and refers to small escort warships with 4G acceleration and heavy laser firepower. The ship's enormous cargo capacity is usually custom fitted according to the specifications of the user, most usually add additional firepower by swapping out the smaller barbettes for larger mounts, missiles, troops or even fighters. Traditional practice is for each of the larger barbettes to be operated individually, and the remaining weaponry is MFD controlled; in many past encounters where individual Mubaraks suffered the loss of their fire control, unsuspecting enemies have been lured into a false sense of security, only to be shredded by the heavy battery.

The Mubarak is a sleek isosceles triangle lifting body with few protuberances to break her clean lines. Her internal spaces are more organic. The normal rectilinear monotony of her compartments and corridors broken up by the "spiderweb" arrangement of her crew and bridge spaces, where the centrally located bridge has the crew quarters arrayed in a circular pattern around it. The ship's armament is located aft, the lasers around the engineering section, and the missiles amidships. The cargo bay is broken into three different sections to permit easy customization.

The version described below includes two 20 ton Javelin class fighters for patrol support; other versions include smaller or larger fighters, or ship's boats mated to boarding crews and security detachments. The docking arrangement is asymmetrical, with the smaller docking ring inhabiting the port side, and the hangar dominating the right two-thirds of the hull alongside. Unlike most designs, the launch ports are located in the roof of the vessel, and the fighters are launched sideways like an ejected rifle cartridge.

The Mubarak is most commonly found with planetary navies along the Regency coreward border with the Vargr Extents, primarily because the class is a proprietary General Products design produced in their yards at Efate and Pretoria. The RQS and Regency Navy operate a few for liaison purposes, but the vast majority are seconded to the planetary reserve and roundout forces on standby duty. Various classes of vessels built to the Type E specifications were commonly found throughout the former Imperium, with the largest contingents operating in the Domains of Gateway and Ilelish.
