A Close Structure Hull is a kind of ship structure, fuselage, chassis, or hull.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

A Close Structure Hull is a set of closely connected craft components, all enclosed within hull plating, armor, and/or constituent components.

  • They also come in Braced Cluster or simple Cluster variants.
  • They are often partially streamlined to make wilderness refueling easier... Although many come as unstreamlined hulls.

Special Variant: Oreo Pattern Hull[edit]

Oreo Pattern Hulls are a special kind of Braced Cluster Hull known for interconnected and sandwiched layers of hulls. They can be made efficiently if done so in bulk and confer slightly easier manufacturing practices and strengthening characteristics. It is named after a type of cookie or biscuit well known in the Second Imperium, which originated on pre-spaceflight Terra and spread during the Interstellar Wars alongside other elements of Terran culture.
