The Kobe class Bulk Carrier is a trading starship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Kobe is a civilian bulk carrier but its modular design and high performance made it too expensive for most civilian customers. The Imperial Navy recognized its merits and modified several to suit a number of roles. The Kobe carries its cargo in 2,000 ton modules, which can be used as fuel tanks, missile magazines, or freight containers. The ship carries only enough fuel for Jump-3 internally, though it can use container fuel to make a Jump-4. Under extreme combat maneuvering, it is possible for container modules to break free of the vessel.
