The Nguksu class Armoured Fast Trader is a mercantile starship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Nguksu is a Vargr-built craft designed to carry valuable cargo fast and secure across the Extents and beyond. Built to take a pounding, this level of armour is often seen on military vessels instead of merchants. It has also seen use as a courier in dangerous sectors of space, and is a mini-escort ship for less protected vessels. The downside of this design is the small cargo area compared with most other trader ships of this size, but its is offset somewhat with the ability to carry expensive freight in greater security.

Usually the ship carries 2 gunners who double as security for the ship. A few variants of this design exist, and some trade cargo space for armoured vaults or passengers, while one version adds military grade electronics and particle guns.
