The Damgarrii class Passenger Launch is a venerated utility smallcraft

Basic Ship Synopsis[edit]

A Launch (also called Lifeboat) uses a 20-ton hull, is capable of 1-G acceleration, carries one ton of fuel tankage, and has a crew of two. [1]

Description (Specifications)[edit]

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.
