Octavian Single-Container Tow

Cargo Shuttle

Specialty: Light Transport

A heavier shuttlecraft with more extensive cargo space but less power and space for armament adequately describes the several ships of the Cargo Shuttle class. Many possess additional utility features such as nonweapon hardpoints. Cargo Shuttles tend to receive extensive in-sector use for rapid transport of small cargoes, and are very commonly flown by novice commercial pilots.

Fast Transport Vessel

Specialty: Blockade Runner

Members of possibly the most romantic ship class in known space, fast transports are used as speedy packet vessels, local small-cargo delivery, and of course, by pirates and smugglers. A relatively small cargo capacity is balanced by the ability of the ship to meet its schedule ahead of time and usually under budget. Fast transports are also commonly able to mount a light but respectable armament, and this combination of weapons and ability to disengage makes them well-nigh irresistible to pilots operating on the fringes of local regulations.

Transport Vessel

Specialty: General Cargo Transport

The unsung and unheralded backbone of commerce, the transport class of hauling vessels includes all manner of mid-size cargo ships used for regional transportation. Transports have a substantial cargo capacity, but retain good handling characteristics, making them popular with independent pilots as well as local and regional hauling firms. Some models sacrifice a fraction of their cargo space for upgraded defenses, making them ideal for delivery missions to unfriendly locales.

Cargo Tow

Specialty: Heavy Cargo Transport

The most commonly seen heavy hauler in known space is the single-container cargo tow. These beasts of burden are slow to accelerate when laden, but usually can mount good shielding and very respectable armor, making them ideal convoy vessels whether escorted or not. Each accommodates a standard industrial deep-space cargo container, making for a very significant cargo capacity.

Dual Tow

Specialty: Heavy Cargo Transport

The largest single-pilot freighters now in regular use, the Dual-Container Cargo Tow, or Dual Tow class, literally doubles the capacity of a regular Cargo Tow by mounting two standard containers rather than one. Ships of this class maneuver slowly and have an unattractive thrust-to-mass ratio when fully loaded, but their ability to move large profitable cargoes is unparalleled. Despite being armored, shielded, and possessed of some light defensive armament, these vessels are usually seen with at least a minimal escort when encountered outside of the Core sectors.
