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. On the
subcraft there are 80 light fighters, 4 fuel shuttles, 2 gigs and 4 air/raft. The AZH class carries 486.05t
of subcraft fuel.  The scout service often reserves cargo area to support scout class vessels. This
allows for 5x100t scout ships and 111t of cargo.  Extensive stores support 26 weeks for crew and
passengers. See T20 Fighting Ships for an early version of the mighty AHL.  Batteries: 19 beam laser,
4 fusion, and 13 sandcaster.
