DeepSpace-class Sensor Ship

DeepSpace-class Sensor Ship

This ship was developed together with the Broadcast-class communications ship and came into service shortly after the famous Imperator-class. They were meant to take care of all needs of dedicated recon and communications for the Imperial Navy. Although not a lot of documentation covers the exploits of these ships, it is but another testimony to their success. While the Broadcast-class is meant to operate as part of fleets, the DeepSapce-class is meant to be independant. It requires only a small crew, perfect for long-duty missions deep in unknown territories or enemy space. A large part of the ship is dedicated to an immense sensor wing containing extremely sensitive equipment, enabling the crew to get a very exact and detailed view of the surrounding space. Its sensor range is one of the largest in the Empire. The DeepSpace is only lightly armed, but has enough firepower to deal with pirates in the depths of space. For additional protection of the ship, there is half a squadron of fighters onboard. The ship also houses another 6 TIE/rc reconnaissance fighters to help completing the sensor view on difficult space terrain, such as asteroid belts, rifts, etc. It also carries 20 self-guided sensor buoys which can be deployed up to 100 ly away from the mothership.
