Deep Trader is another, rarer, variant of a free trader. Built for areas of low stellar density, deep traders are jump-3 capable. The Craft Type Code assigned to this class is A3. Since these ships are generally custom-built or produced in low quantities, no standard example exists.
Basic Supraclass Definition: THE FAR TRADER: The basic ship involved in free trade is called the free trader. Variations on the basic ship have resulted in variations in the name.
Some well-equipped high-G traders employed beyond the Imperial border are called fast traders. The type A2 far trader derives its name from its jump capability: its drives are capable of Jump-2, twice what the standard free trader can do. The far trader can be encountered anywhere in the Imperium. It ranges far and wide, and deals with every world it finds. Even amber zones and red zones are not considered off limits by its captains, provided there is profit to be made and the risk of being caught is slight. Traders and Gunboats 23.
