Sketches – Krak Freighter – FT4

The Milion-class freighter has been in service for only two years before it became clear that larger hulls were needed. The Itinera-class was the result of that need. Again to to the surprise of many, it emerged from the shipyards without a collection of advisories and spaceworthiness directives. While some (the provosts and magisters primarily)… Continue reading Sketches – Krak Freighter – FT4

Sketches – Krak Freighter – FT2

The Milion-Class freighter in service with the Krak University States is an oddity. Not that it exists, but that for once it was a product that was conceived, developed, and put into production without requiring a recall, safety notice, or mandatory refit. Part of the reason is that some of the design components are freely… Continue reading Sketches – Krak Freighter – FT2

Sketches – Krak Light Cruiser

"Modern" space travel is a comparatively new development for the Krak University States. While only having reliable drive-field engines for a handful of years, the pedagogical oligarchy has shown just how quickly they can take concepts into a developed, if not quite mature technology. Their prototype light cruiser goes with a comparatively classic standard armament:… Continue reading Sketches – Krak Light Cruiser

Sketches – Krak Reverse-Engineered Heavy Cruiser

This sketch is a bit of a derivative design. The Krak recovered several combat ships from a flotilla of automated warships in a dead-end system several jumps out from the Sargasso Nebula, and it got them a plethora of technologies. One of those technologies was practical examples of larger combat hulls than they could initially… Continue reading Sketches – Krak Reverse-Engineered Heavy Cruiser

Sketches – Krak Survey Ship

Basically a flying tuning fork, the key parts of this design (aside from its simplicity) are the deliberate provision of "spare" space, and the split hull design for the engine mounts. Krak ships are designed to be especially modular, with critical systems capable of being pulled and swapped as needed. This is a result both… Continue reading Sketches – Krak Survey Ship
