Ship Doctrine[edit]

Bulk Cargo Carrier (TB) Bulk cargo haulers are like many other merchant vessels but their focus is on transporting freight. They often operate over well known, long establish routes. They are often contracted directly to companies with most or all their capacity used for moving that company's products. Another way they differ from normal merchants is that they deal with large containerize cargo modules. These modules are connected to a external framework which provides atmosphere, and power to the modules and allows access by crew members. There are usually discounts for modules without power and/or atmosphere requirements.
Tanker (TF) Tankers are specially designed to haul cargoes of either liquid or gas. Many are specially designed and can not take alternate types of cargo. For example a hydrogen carrier can not normally be used to transport ammonia. There are some specialized tankers, where entire storage modules are swapped out no unlike bulk cargo carriers, but these are more the exception then the rule.
Ore Hauler (TO) A specialized bulk cargo hauler for raw or processed ore. This cargo is usually exposed to vacuum and may suffer temperature extremes. Many have a small pressurized hold for more valuable cargoes.
Grain Hauler (TV) Another bulk cargo hauler for agricultural products. These cargoes can not exposed to vacuum or temperature extremes, so the hold is sealed, and subject to strict environmental standards. The holds are normally not suitable for passengers or crew due to the temperature, atmospheric mix, or pressure conditions needed to keep the agricultural products as fresh as possible.
