While working on the deckplans, I made the middle deck wider and upper deck longer. These changes are not shown in the above picture. when I get time I'll redo the picture.
The Auroro Aglo class Support Cruiser was first built for the RaTanie Defense Forces (RDF) by Starkin Shipyards. The RDF needed a ship capable of transporting and supporting a full company of troops. Despite the Auroro Aglo’s cost, it was selected by the RDF because of its depth of systems and facilitates. At first the Auroro Aglo class were all built with a Meson Gun, but with time the RDF requested a second version built, with the Meson Gun omitted. Eventually a total 209 Auroro Aglos were built for the RDF, 143 Meson Gun ship and 66 others. After the production of ships for the RDF ceased, Starkin Shipyards still continued building the Auroro Aglo class for other planetary governments and private parties. In this fashion Starkin Shipyards produced 42 more ships, with about half of them being the fully stripped-down version. Today only two Auroro Aglos are in service with the RDF, however, many other Auroro Aglo Cruisers can be found around in use by independent mercenary companies and lower tech planetary navies.

Notes: The most common variant of the Auroro Aglo has the Meson Gun left out and the addition space used for cargo. The accommodations for the crew consist of 3 Large Staterooms, 27 Small staterooms and 20 Bunks. The accommodations for the Troops consist of 1 Large Stateroom, 23 Small Staterooms and 26 Bunks. Standard facilities included are a double size Sick Bay, a Machine Shop and an Electronics Shop. The ship has two non-standard facilities; a Brig and an Armory. There are only three months worth of Power Plant fuel. Addition electronics include a second full electronics suite to facilitate Command and Control for the troops and two backup MFDs. Despite having MFDs to control the lasers and missiles, there are 7 addition gunners for the laser turrets and the missile barbette. 7 additional troops can be carried in place of the redundant gunners. Finally, despite the ship having a Jump 3 drive, it only carriers two parsecs of fuel. Disassembled dismountable fuel tank could be install to allow the ship to use its full jump. a disassembled dismountable tank would cost .63MCr and take up 90dt of cargo space assembled and 2.25dt disassembled Chris' Custom Facilities Mass Volume Power Cost (Metric Tons) (m3) (MW) (MCr.)

This version has the following systems removed: The Meson Gun, the Meson Screen, the second Electronics Suite, the backup MFDs and the EMM. With these systems remove the ship can transport 60 troops.

Note: The accommodations for the crew consist of 3 Large Staterooms, 27 Small staterooms and 10 Bunks. The accommodations for the Troops consist of 1 Large Stateroom, 23 Small Staterooms and 36 Bunks.

This ship was built using SSDS. To get the TNE style data the ship was roughly redesinged
using FF&S and a spreadsheet found at the Vyborg campaign home page. When designing the ship
I really liked the idea of having the ship tricked out with all the goodies. This of course
resulted in a design that may be too expensive for some, so, I included a version of the ship
with many of the goodies removed. It seems that SSDS requires sandcasters to have a MFD.
This is inconsistent with QSDS and results in sandcasters not being the inexpensive defense
that they should be, so I ignored this requirement. While doing the deckplans I keep adding systems
that I over looked when I did the initial layout. The result is that there probably isn't
enough space shown for fuel on the plans, although its hard to tell for sure.
