The Fairmile Model G is a base class of intersteller scout, dispatch boat, gunboat, system defense craft, free trader and utility craft. Built in immense numbers by the Fairmile Yard shipbuilding company on Stirling, in the Principality of Caledon, the "G Boat" is sturdy, reliable and incredibly versatile, has superb atmospheric and vacuum flight characteristics, and is found in immense numbers in the Royal Caledonian Navy, the Royal Caledonian Expeditionary Service, and many merchant and mercenary fleets.
The "G Boat" is available in many variants:
Scout (Model G/R)
Equipped with a pair of turrets, an extensive sensor fit and space for a crew of 4-6 (and stores to keep them on station for 90 days), the G/R is the backbone of the Royal Caledonian Expeditionary Service's scout force, as well as those of several nearby states and even a few Imperial and Aslan system fleets. Close to 900 serve in the RCES alone.
Dispatch Boat (Model G/C)
Equipped for courier duty, with large message data storage banks, self-defensive armament and space for a crew of 2-3 plus passengers, nearly 450 handle communications duties for the Caledonian Navy - 3/4 of the dispatch boat fleet.
Diplomatic Courier (Model G/V)
The Model G/V is designed to carry diplomats safely and securely on assignments. It is unarmed, has space for a flight crew of 3, and a diplomatic team of 4.
Gunboat (Model G/A)
The Model G/A has two modular turrets, added internal armor and weapons capacity. Intended for short-endurance operation, it has a crew of four - Commander, Pilot/Navigator, Gunner and Engineer.
Yacht (Model G/Y)
This version - basically a commercial version of the G/V - is sold commercially, and is a favorite among the pragmatic wealthy, providing quarters for a combination of 8-10 flight crew, guests and family. It's not THE most luxurious yacht available, but it is a great value for the money - and some custom interiors are absolutely stunning.
Transport/Cargo (Model G/T)
A commonly-used Free Trader.
