Basic Ship Synopsis
- A launch may mount missile racks and sandcasters; it may not mount lasers as weapons. The craft has thirteen tons excess space available for custom use, and typically cost MCr14. 
The Damgarrii-class is a very functional, cheap, cost-efficient, and capable smallcraft that can be found throughout Charted Space. It is usually unarmed and unarmored although provisions for both exist. It was designed with a the hardiness and solid state electronics that Vilani engineering is known for. In fact, the craft has safeguards on its safeguard and many joke that it was built to be serviced by proto-sophonts with TL-1 tools (...of course, not really). At any rate, it's a tough and very serviceable Launch.
