Title: Military Transport Jumpship extinction?
Post by: Sigma on 01 April 2011, 06:55:01
In JHS: 3072 pg. 105, there is a reference to a class of ships known as Military Transport Jumpships. It is also said that none of these ships survived the fall of the Star League.

The way it describes them seems like a standard JS but with a true interplanetary drive akin to ancient JS types like the Aquilla.


My question is are these similar beasts to the Potemkin with a compact core and lots of armor or like the Aquilla but with a standard KF core and a couple of docking collars. "None survived the Fall of the Star League" seems to indicate the clans do not have access to them. 

Any other places where these guys are mentioned? Or what are they exactly?
