Minkin's Fighting Starships

Minkin's Fighting Starships is the definitive Core Systems resource for physical specifications, performance data and visual identification on all known (declassified) vessels in current and historical military service. Currently in its 85th Edition and delivering for the first time physical specifications and holo/flatpic images of Jensai warships, Minkin's embodies the state of Republic knowledge of shipbuilding.

Notice: Not all profiles are freely accessible to the general public. Where applicable, you will be prompted for your clearance rating; if insufficient or false, you will be returned to the Minkin's service menu and a log of your failed attempt will be made.

Ship Classifications

The Core Systems Republic Navy vessel displacement ranges are used to determine the relative type of a vessel, primarily for classification purposes. Spartan vessels are expected to devote more volume and armament to their definitions of a given vessel than a ship made by the Republic Navy, and Jensai ships - at least for the time being - should be considered more formidable than their mere size would suggest. These size ratings are an abstraction for classification purposes, and should be seen as guidelines more than hard and fast rules. Carriers are often special cases falling into the Captiol Ships range, but as their function is frequently folded into the hull of cruisers or battleships, there is no common classification for the dedicated carrier class size (as it varies quite a bit).
