The Azhanti Rain is a Commonwealth refit for an Azhanti High Lightning class vessel.  Being an
obsolete multi-purpose cruiser it was hoped to fully utilize its J5 drive without jump tanks.  The
Azanti Rain is the only example of the AZH in the Commonwealth and is being fully utilized by the
Commowealth Rangers (aka Scout service).
The AR has been upgraded with a TL 16 power plant. This has improved jump fuel utilization,
agility and available cargo space. It also has a model 9 computer and additional armour. The
AR has 370 medium passengers (26 double staterooms) and 155 low berths. On the subcraft
there are 80 light fighters, 3 1000t fuel/cargo tenders, 4 combat shuttles, 2 gigs and 4 air/raft.
The AR class carries 500t of subcraft fuel.  The Rangers will often use the remaining cargo for
mobile bases or servicing scout ships.  It would require 12 trips for the fuel tenders to refuel the AR.

The Azhanti Rain also has an Operations Command Center (200dt, 5Mcr). and usually carries a
 JCA module in cargo and has room for several scout class vessels.
