Description:
The Azhanti High Lightning is an obsolete multi-purpose cruiser capable of a variety of different
functions. Most notable is the ships J5 engine which allows it mobility. And despite inferior agility
and weaponry this has kept it active. 
The AZH has facilities for 376 medium passengers (26 double staterooms), 155 low berths. For
subcraft there are 80 light fighters, 4 fuel shuttles, 2 gigs and 4 air/raft. The AZH class carries 617.3t
of subcraft fuel.  In the scout service they often reserves cargo area to support scout class vessels. This
 allows for 3x100t scout ships or 390t of cargo.  Extensive stores support 16 weeks for officers, crew and
passengers. See T20 Fighting Ships for a 200 year early version of the mighty AHL.  It is not unusual to
see cargo space dedicated to either a meson or JCA communications module, marine weapons or
extra stores.
    Batteries: 19 beam laser,  4 fusion, and 13 sandcaster.
