The Ke-L6-1a Henry Chen-class Training ship is a mobile training facility that became available in YE 31.
Under the Military Buildup Limitations, the Henry Chen are considered warships.
The Henry Chen-class Training Ship is a mobile Star Army of Yamatai training facility. The concept was to improve the quality of soldier training by providing hands on experience. It is a mobile facility that can take groups of trainees to various environments for their training. It is named after Taisho Henry Chen. The Henry Chen has simulators that recreate most common Star Army of Yamatai ship sections.
The initial design concept for the Henry Chen was started in YE 30. With the advent of the Second Mishhuvurthyar War, the development effort was expedited. Some changes were made to the design as a result of the war. It entered service in YE 31.

The Henry Chen has three Standard Crew Lounges. They are located at:
The autoloader is used to transfer the torpedoes from the Magazine, to the Ke-L6-W3100 torpedo arrays. The autoloader system has two tracks for each pylon to transfer torpedoes. One is used for delivering a torpedo and other is a return path for use when changing the torpedo. The autoloader system performs a visual clearance check to ensure that the tracks are unobstructed before moving torpedoes.
The Henry Chen uses Standard Maintenance Conduits to allow the crew to maintain the many systems onboard.
The Henry Chen has the first complete Autonomous Medical Treatment Center installation replacing a standard medical center. It was installed in direct response to the tactic used by the Mishhuvurthyar. It is located on deck five.

There are two large Star Army Galleys. One is for the use of the Henry Chen crew. It is located on deck nine. The second galley is used to provide for the trainees and is located on deck six.
There are two Standard Star Army Dining Halls on the ship. One is for the use of the Henry Chen crew. It is located on deck nine. The second mess is used to provide for the trainees and is located on deck six.

There are control rooms where instructors can monitor the simulators and the trainees. Instructors can also program situations for the trainees to deal with.
For starships, the simulators consist of working simulations of most common Star Army of Yamatai ships such as the Plumeria-class (2D) Medium Gunship, Yui-class Scout and Nozomi-class Scout. The simulators typically include bridge, engineering systems as these are the most typical duty locations. When in use, the simulators function in a realistic manner, and are capable of simulating gravity, inertia, combat situations. Thru the use of controlled Nodal System activity can create realistic battle damage, including minor explosions.
There are two vehicle bays on the Henry Chen. They are two decks high and are located on decks thirteen and fourteen. Adjacent to the vehicle bay on deck is the vehicle maintenance area.

All windows on the Henry Chen are made of Transparent Durandium. The following areas are reinforced with Zesuaium for either additional safety or security concerns: Computer rooms, Armories, and the Magazine.
The Henry Chen contains all Star Army Emergency Systems.
On the Henry Chen, blast shutters are located:
There are ten Standard Damage Control Stations on every deck of the Henry Chen.
The Henry Chen is equipped with 235 Star Army Escape Pod, Type 30s. They are positioned in strategic locations. Trainees are assigned to specific pods as part of the orientation.
Due to the size of the compliment aboard the Henry Chen it carries three Soul Savior Pod to provide enough storage capacity.
All major heat-generating pieces of equipment are paired with Ketsurui Fleet Yards appropriately-sized heat absorbers, which rapidly and effectively absorb thermal radiation and convert it to usable energy.
The primary power source for the Henry Chen is the Ke-L6-G3100 Aether generator. Secondary power is provided by four Ke-L6-G3101 fusion reactors. Fuel for the reactors is collected by the Matter Collection System and stored for later use.
The Henry Chen is armed to protect the valuable resources it carries.
