Adeptus Mechanicus Maintenance Ship

From 1d4chan

Like the Logistic ships of the Imperial Navy, the Adeptus Mechanicus has its own form of logistical support ships. The majority of which, were design to construct, repair or maintain the vessels of the Imperium of Man.

Maintenance Ships[edit]

Goliath[edit]

The handyman's repair ship of the AdMech.

The Goliath-Class Forge Tender is Light Cruiser-sized vessels of the Adeptus Mechanicus Fleet. These ships perform maintenance repairs on capital ships, remote outposts, and Merchant Fleet vessels in deep space. In service for endless centuries, despite their size, they only have the holding capacity of a standard transport.

These ships are largely crewed by Servitors and only maintain a small skeleton crew of Techpriests which man the Tenders' machine shops and maintenance facilities. Today, Goliaths are relatively rare but their services are in great demand.

It is speculated by Imperial intelligence reports that some of these vessels, crewed by the Dark Mechanicus, survive to this day within the Eye of Terror and help maintain the fleets of Chaos.

  • Length: 4km

Factory Ships[edit]

Goliath[edit]

The Bunning's Warehouse of naval vessels.

Not to be confused by the abovementioned Goliath-Class Forge Tender.

The Goliath-Class Factory Ships are enormous, space-faring, energy-processing vessels used by the fleets of the Adeptus Mechanicus. As their name implies, these are mini-Forge Worlds with rocket engines strapped on one end.

They devour the solar plasma of stars to power their own fuel and goods production techniques, in order to sate the endless hunger of the Imperium's Hive Worlds. They are fragile ships treated with much respect, and the ships slowly plod their way through certain traditional trade routes. They are necessary for the survival of Hive Worlds, delivering vital goods and fuel to them on a regular basis.

If a Goliath factory ship takes any sort of damage, it risks detonating in a catastrophic explosion that is capable of scouring the atmosphere from an entire world.

In the direst of emergencies when pursued by enemy warships, a captain may jettison the valuable fuel which forms a dense cloud a plasma that explodes with several megatonnes of force when ignited by the Goliath's engines.
