Description (Specifications)[edit]

Vargr Scout (Type VS): Using a 100-ton hull, the Vargr Scout is primarily a military and paramilitary ship used by naval units and corsair bands for reconnaissance and ground support duties. It mounts Jump drive-A, Maneuver drive-A, and Power plant-A, giving performance of Jump-2 and 2G acceleration. Fuel tankage for 40.0 tons supports the power plant and allows one Jump-2. Adjacent to the bridge is a model/2 computer. There are two staterooms and no low berths. There is one hardpoint and one ton allocated to fire control. Installed on the hardpoint is a triple turret mounting a heterogenous mix of weaponry: One beam laser, one missile rack, and one sandcaster. There is one ship's vehicle, a 6-ton gravitic speeder. Cargo capacity is 8.0 tons. The hull is streamlined.

The Vargr Scout requires a crew of one: the pilot; a gunner is generally carried as well. Two additional personnel (scouts or relief crew) may be carried with double occupancy. It is not intended for commercial passenger transport. The ship costs MCr35.9964 (...including architect's fees and discount for standard designs; exact price may vary) and takes nine months to build.
