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 and revitalized. The original AHL still serves in the Regency
although not in Navy service.
The AHL has 2 double staterooms for captain and first officer,  room for 6 medium passengers
(3 double staterooms), 155 low berths. On the subcraft there are 80 light fighters, 4 fuel shuttles,
2 gigs and 4 air/raft. The AHL class carries 263.8t of subcraft fuel.
