Firefly Mk. 7.1 Courier/Escort

Firefly Mark VII.1, by license at Irwin-deWitte Aerospace Manufacturing, Inc.
Manufactured at Olympus Mons Vista Shipyards, Mars Terra/Sol.

This design is now available for customers wanting the latest technology in Small Navy vessels. This model is also available in other configurations for such duties as troop transport, escort, general patrol, customs enforcement, & piracy suppression. This model is configured for deep penetration attacks and salvage. This vessel (with the new drop tanks) can Jump 4 parsecs, quickly make a sensor sweep and jump back out while easily fending off any fighter screens. If tactically necessary, the vessel can stay on station for 4 hours with full shields at 4 G's acceleration.

Hull: Advanced (TL15) 500dt, (code 5), Streamlined close structure, Self-sealing, Hull-14/Structure-14, {60.3Mcr.}

Engine Pod x2 (TL15): Dual Reaction Drive System Advanced Type K, Thrust +4, {14.25dt, 80Mcr.} These engines integrate a TL15 hydrogen fusion reactor and HePlaR reaction chamber thrusters using gravitational compression* which generate their own power, and when used in most atmospheres require no fuel. They use 50dt fuel per hour at 4G thrust (1hr of full additional thrust per J-number of fuel used.) Combined, all maneuver drives can deliver a whopping 8Gs thrust.
Total Engineering {93dt, 540Mcr.}
*IMTU, an engineer passing a “Difficult” level task/skill check may as an emergency move, double the thrust of these drives at the same fuel consumption rate and engine size.
