The Udzuekh class Mining Vessel is a Vargr mining starship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

This unusual design is used in Vargr mining operations. The business end is a pair of grapple arms and twin mining lasers that cut and process asteroids for ore. Ore is taken into the cargo bay where it is either processed onboard or transported elsewhere. Four mining drones assist in mining and are kept outside the hull in cradles, but can be taken inside for maintenance. Unlike a lot of mining vessels some space is set aside up for additional crew comfort and a dedicated med bay. [1]

Uzduekh’s are reasonably well armed, as mining can be a dangerous business. [2]

Normal crew consists of a captain, 2 pilots, 1 navigator, 2 gunners, 1 medic, 3 engineers and 6 mining crew. The Udzuek is a TL 11 Design. This is a standard design so the 10% price discount applies. [3]
