  • Miss Chitty scoffs at your clan overlords
OKi: So they agreed?
DaWi: Yeah, but it was a close run thing, and you're not going to like what they want in return. Three new Botans. They wanted solid core hulls, but we talked them down to liquid in exchange for moving up the refit of the Arcadia.
OKi: And the Governing Council agreed? 'Course they did. Gives them an excuse to order three more ships of their own. I assume three more for Anton as well.
DaWi: Actually, no.  Anton wants another four solid cores built, but they want them to go to the Combined fleet. They're actually not worried about keeping parity with us and Port Sur. They want to make sure the Alliance has a strong defense, especially with all the building the Inner Sphere is doing. That's... umm... why they had a condition of their own.
OKi: I'm not going to want to hear this, am I?
DaWi: The Alliance Council has formally requested in the strongest language possible that the Tsunozame stays behind as well.
OKi: Do they really think I'd be able to make a difference if someone attacked us here?
DaWi: Yeah, and so do you. You just don't want to admit it.
OKi: We could be doing so much more than we are.
DaWi: We could also be doing a lot less. Very easily. The common thread in the discussion among our heads of state is that this isn't really our problem. Port Sur was actually offended when we first brought it up. I didn't even mention the extra financial aid the governing council promised them, on top of the WarShips and the Arcadia refit, and that was to get our hands on a ship that's been largely stripped and in mothballs for the better part of twenty years. A ship they were never going to be able to use in any practical fashion. And oh yeah, we have to pay for the work to get it jump capable again and provide the crew to get it to the Federated Suns for the handover. We were lucky to get a Combined Fleet escort, and that's just because nobody wants the Ravens or somebody else to nab it on the way.
OKi: Is this really all we can do?
DaWi: For now, yeah.

Author: This ship is more of a template than a complete vessel. The battleship Triumphant was recovered by the periphery world of Port Sur after the Reunification War, kept in an undisclosed location for centuries, critically damaged during the Jihad, spent decades more as a barely functional bulk food transport from 3078 to around 3140, and was finally put back into mothballs on the edge of complete failure. Generations old combat damage and the need to keep other ships functioning saw many of her components stripped out, reducing her to something worse than what you see before you. These stats are the result of the months long patch job and refit necessary to get her to a state where she can travel to the Inner Sphere where, with Cannonshop's permission of course, she will be handed over to the evacuation fleet.

So, if you'd like, feel free to speculate on what further refits may be made to improve her capabilities in this role.

Good news is the lab boys say the symptoms of asbestos poisoning show an immediate latency of 44.6 years. So if you're thirty or over you're laughing. Worst case scenario you miss out on a few rounds of canasta, plus you've forwarded the cause of science by three centuries. I punch those numbers into my calculator, it makes a happy face.

She might be a good "cargo ship" I might be temped if time to strap on some light guns for defense but it not design for combat but transport
"For the Angel of Death spread his wings on the blast, And breathed in the face of the foe as he passed:And the eyes of the sleepers waxed deadly and chill, And their hearts but once heaved, and for ever grew still!"
