The Plankwell class dreadnaught is a more specialized ship than the multi-task oriented Tigress class. Lacking the extensive troop compliment and the large fighter screen, the Plankwell fills a more traditional battleship role as the centre of a fleet of supporting ships. For decades, the Imperial Fleet in the Spinward Marches has included at least one BatRon of Plankwell class ships, but in 1102 the last such squadron was rotated to the strategic reserves in Corridor sector. Sentiment in Naval and Sector circles runs high in favour of the return of at leas one BatRon to the Marches. Plankwell class dreadnaughts are named for notable admirals in the Imperial Navy. Plankwell class ships were built using a modular design and construction technique which has proven cost-effective in commercial ship-building. A central strut or keel serves as a foundation, bracing the drives and aligning the spinal mount, while all other parts of the ship are mounted to brackets or strengthened points along it. The technique allows seperate construction of the various modules (such as qaurters, weapon mounts, fuel tanks and control areas), with a final mating of all the various components being performed only after the drives and keel have been tested and accepted. There was some initial concern that the connecting points would be focuses for weakness in battle, but the loss of two seperate Plankwells in combat has been attributed to strategic misdirection.
